Delicious any time, Millionaire Pie is especially prized by the summer cook who doesn't want to heat up the kitchen. This recipe is from an article on millionaire pie.
- Cream together the softened cream cheese and the sugar with an electric mixer, letting the mixer run for 3 or 4 minutes on high speed.
- Stir into the cream cheese mixture the crushed pineapple, coconut and pecans, and mix well.
- Carefully fold in half of the whipped topping until filling is blended well. Reserve remaining half for top (see below).
- Pile filling into a prepared pie shell, and chill for at least 3 hours.
- Makes one pie.
Note: Millionaire Pie can be garnished with a dollop of the whipped topping when served, or you can spread the remaining half of the topping over the whole pie and finish with a sprinkling of chopped pecans. A third alternative is to fold both cups of whipped topping into the filling; this works quite well and makes for an even lighter texture, but allow more chilling time before serving if you go this route.
