Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie

30+ years ago, I had a piece of blueberry pie at the job I worked and it was so good I wanted the recipe. Well they would not share and I have looked everywhere for this recipe all these years. And wala, I googled the other day and found it!. You have got to try this recipe. It is soooo good and soooo easy to make.
Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie

1 9" Graham Cracker Crust or baked pie shell
1 small can pineapples drained
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream (I used 2 cartons)
8 oz. cream cheese

Whip whipping cream until stiff peaks. Set aside. Combine cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and lemon juice together until creamy. Gently stir in whipping cream. Then gently stir in the drained pineapples. Pour into graham cracker crust and refrigerate at least 3 - 4 hours before serving. Oh my gosh, this is sooo yummy.
You can also substitute the pineapples with a pint of rinsed and drained blueberrie or strawberries.

May recipe

Here is a recipe for a great summer salad. This is one of those salads that you can add or delete items from depending on your taste. Example, it calls for cherries but I don't like cherries so I don't put them in there. It doesn't call for grapes but I love grapes so I put them in there. So if there is something you don't like just omit it and add what you do. I love this salad.

Fruit Salad

1 cup marachino cherries
1 cup mandarine oranges, drained
1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (your prefence what kind)
1 cup colored marshmallows
1 cup sour cream (sometimes I subst. cool whip)

Just combine everything in a bow, mix together real well and chill overnight. It stays fresh for about 3 days.
If you don't want that much salad, just cut ingredients in half. When I serve it, I cut up a banana to put with it. You can't include the banana in the recipe. Enjoy!
