Makes 8 servings


  • One prepared crust for a 9-inch pie
  • For the Filling:
  • 3 1/2 cups pineapple chunks, or 2 1/2 cups pineapple chunks plus 1 cup mango chunks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons water
  • For the Coconut Streusel:
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded or flaked sweetened coconut


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a 9-inch pie plate with the prepared crust. Place a piece of aluminum foil in the crust and fill with rice or dried beans.


In a saucepan over low heat, combine the fruit, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. Cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook for 1 minute. The mixture will thicken. Cool the filling.

In a bowl, combine the ingredients and set aside.

Place the cooked fruit in the prebaked crust, then cover the top with the coconut streusel. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. Cool the pie on a rack until ready to serve.
