2 – Minute Tropical Pie

This is a fun little dessert that is so quick and easy a child could make it! As a matter of fact, it’s a perfect recipe to turn over to the children. With a little help in chopping a few of the ingredients, and a little adult supervision, the kids can prepare the dessert for dinner! They will be so proud of their creation!

It’s called 2 – minute pie, because it literally takes about 2 minutes to prepare. Now that is not exact and depends on how fast you move in the kitchen,
so please don’t time yourself and write me comments that it actually took 2 minutes and 47 seconds or some other such nonsense…lol. I know most of you think I am kidding, but you would not believe some of the comments I get…lol.

Here is what you will need:

1 prepared graham cracker pie crust or shortbread pie crust

1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, undrained

1 (3.5 oz.) box of instant vanilla pudding

1 (3.5 oz.) box of instant lemon pudding (can use another vanilla or white chocolate is good also if you like a less tart flavor)

8 oz. sour cream

1 cup flaked coconut, divided

1/2 cup nuts, chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained and chopped (optional)

whole maraschino cherries for garnish

whipped cream for garnish

Mix the crushed pineapple with is juices and pudding mixes together until the
puddings have dissolved and then add the sour cream in and stir until smooth. Be
sure you buy the INSTANT PUDDING, not the cook and serve, it will not work in
this. Stir in 1/2 cup of the coconut, nuts and chopped cherries.

Pour into prepared crust.

Top with the other 1/2 cup of coconut and a few whole maraschino cherries.
Chill for at least 2 – 3 hours before serving!
