Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

4 Hours refrigeration

Yield

6 servings

Equipment you will need

8-9 inch cake round tin. Springform or one where the base comes out. (You need to be able to get the pie out without damaging it.)

Ingredients

The Base

2 1/2 oz or 75 g butter
8 oz or 220 g Digestive Biscuits (cookies, see below) or Honey Graham Crackers

The Filling

7 fl oz or 200 ml fresh whipping cream
7 oz or 200 g cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup or 150 g of Chopped pineapple, drained
1 Tablespoons Icing sugar / powdered sugar (optional)
1 Can of drained mandarins for decorating the top

For US friends, you can buy Digestive cookies from Meijer’s, Job Lots, Walmart, Dollar Tree, World Market, in the cookie or International section. Please do try to use digestive biscuits in your recipe as it will make a difference in the base.

Instructions


1. Cut out some parchment paper and line the base of the tin.

If you are using a spring form tin, I clip the parchment paper in & lock the tin. Then cut the excess paper off.

2. Drain & chop the pineapples into small chunks, say the size of sugar cubes and drain with kitchen paper.

Place all your digestives / Graham Crackers in a zippy bag,

and using a rolling pin bash them until they become fine crumbs.

3. In a mixing bowl (large enough to hold the digestives) melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave. It should be liquid. If not microwave for a further 10 seconds, or until it has completely melted. Add the crumbled digestives to the butter and mix very well until it is all incorporated.

4. Lightly (vegetable) oil the base of your tin if using a large tin. Transfer the digestives mixture to the baking pan.

5. Use the bottom of a glass or other object and compress the digestives mixture as much as possible. The harder it is the less likely it will come apart when you take it out of the pan.

Use the back of your hand and go along the edges pushing the mix down and compressing.

6. Add the icing / powdered sugar (if using) to the cream and whip up until just before stiff. Add the cream cheese and mix in well. Add your pineapple. Mix in gently with a spoon.

7. Brush the side of the tin all around with some vegetable oil or spray to prevent the pie from sticking then add the filling just like in the photo below.

8. Use a spatula and carefully smooth the surface of the mixture. Arrange the mandarins on the top. Place in the fridge for 4 hours MINIMUM.

Tips

  • If you are worried the pie has not set, place it in the freezer for 60 minutes before you are ready to serve it, and then remove it from the tin and cut it whilst it is still cold.
  • It is easier to cut 'clean' slices if you use a very sharp knife under hot water first, and cut straight through the pie.
  • If you want to achieve a smooth finish on the top of the pie, use a long-bladed flat rounded knife, dip in a glass of hot water and smooth the surface and sides.
