Pineapple Mini Pies

94 Flares 94 Flares ×

The Cayman Islands dodged a bullet with Tropical Storm Ernesto.  Of course, not before we de-coconuted all our trees.  Those things turn into window-smashing missiles in 90 mile an hour winds.  I was sad to see my coconuts go, along with most of the branches but I’m assured ‘they will grow back.’

It better grow back!

Since I’ve lost my coconut inspiration – damn you, Ernesto! – I’m focusing on pineapple this week.  These little pies are super easy and delish.

  1. I’m so happy to hear that you guys dodged the bullet with Ernesto! Sorry to hear about your coconuts, though. I am loving these little pies…I bet they are delicious! 🙂

  2. Sorry about the coconuts but those pies look tasty!!

  3. Every hurricane has a silver lining – or in this case, a golden filling. Gorgeous little pies, PS.

  4. Super bummer about the coconuts, but I'm glad they didn't smash through any of your windows. This little pie is certainly a nice consolation! I'm on my way down! Hold one for me!

  5. We love pineapple dessert! My husband bought a pineapple earlier this week. Mini pies sound like a big hit in my house with the kids!

  6. What an awesome taste of sweet and tart! I love pineapple and these look absolutely perfect. My thighs are going to hate you for this 😉

  7. Oh! These pineapple tarts look delicious, I love pineapple and can imagine how this must taste…yum!
    Hope you are having a great week 🙂

  8. So adorable! I love these!

  9. Wow these look so gorgeous! I wish I saw this post when I had that huge pineapple…pineapples are very expensive now so I probably won't get to eat it for quite some time. 🙁

  10. Well, I am glad Ernesto didn't do too much damage, but sorry to hear of the de-coconutting. But these little pineapple pies look gorgeous!

  11. Pineapple pie!!! You are a genius … I have never used pineapples this way but wow! these pies looks so cute and flavorful!!!

  12. I love the elegant simplicity of these pies! PS… I bought a mini-South African pineapple yesterday. Eh… I'll stick with the big guns! 😀

  13. Glad you didn't get hit with the storm. Those pies look so tasty, I would like one for breakfast 🙂 Have a great week!

  14. I could stick my head in and bite the rest of that pie! It looks so good!

    We've got coconut trees in our garden and we pay someone to cut them down all the time because I'm scared of sitting on the deck and getting bonked on the head.

    Sorry about your nuts. 🙂

  15. Did you have to de-coconut your trees before the coconuts were ripe? I would go nuts if I could have a coconut tree in my yard! But I LOVE these little pineapple pies. I love having a whole little pie all to myself! What a great fruit for a pie filling. Only in the Caymans!!! They look fabulous! : )

  16. Wow! I'm sorry about your coconuts, but I don't think I'd like coconut missiles heading toward me either. I love mini pies like this – automatic portion control and I can still have a treat!

  17. Super recipe – never thought of putting pineapple in a pie but then we're not very exotic here. Gosh, that does sound scary, the thought of these coconuts flying. Are you all ordered to wear crash helmets?

  18. Thank heaven for frozen pie crusts and thank you for this recipe. Why haven't I had this before?!

  19. I’m putting it on the menu next week!

  20. Oooo I would hate to lose my coconuts…Fine looking recovery recipe though!!

  21. Last year I lost a melon in Hurricane Irene–I had been waiting so long for it to mature! So I can sympathize. 😉 I'm sorry you lost your coconuts, but this recipe sounds absolutely delicious!

  22. I have had quite a few varieties of hand pies growing up in the South; but, I've never had one with delicious pineapple inside. That has to be amazing. So sorry that you lost all of the coconuts! I'm sure they will come back better than ever.

  23. So cute and packed with flavour 😀

  24. These are the perfect little treats! Love them!

  25. You gave me the type of recipe I would love to try, the simple and easy. Love the pineapples and I normally buy the canned ones because I am too lazy to cut the fruit, removing the skin and what not.

  26. OH MY……….looks scrumptious! I'm going to have to give those a try! Thanks for the inspiration! Mrs. Herb Garden

  27. Pineapple and pie. I wonder why that's a combination we don't hear about more often? It sounds amazing!

  28. You can never go wrong with mini! Tasty little treats!

  29. I remember hurricane season all too well from when I lived in New Orleans…though there we didn't have to worry about coconuts! These little pies look delish!

  30. easy and delish – two magical words 🙂 Looks good and sounds good. And I like pineapples a lot.

  31. Those look so yummy!

  32. I'm sure the coconut tree will grow soon enough, and with more coconuts too!
    That's a delicious pineapple pie! Wish I could have at least two! 🙂
