Pineapple Philly Pie

This could be a sweet and creamy, cheesecake-y type dessert. I don’t usually go for pineapple myself, but this could be really good. I think the cream cheese would soften the sharpness of the pineapple and be a really nice balance.

Pineapple Philly Pie

1/3 c sugar

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 c crushed pineapple (do not drain)

1/2 lb (8 oz) pkg cream cheese

1/2 c sugar

1/2 teas salt

Combine a 1/2 lb package cream cheese with 1/2 c sugar and 1/2 teas salt. Blend smooth. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, stir well after each is added. Blend in 1/2 c milk & 1/2 teas vanilla.
