Pineapple Chiffon Pie

Scripture to Live By: 
1 Peter 3:9
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Romans 12:17-21
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”   says the Lord.  On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.....
  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

These Scriptures are good to live by in all our relationships, for it is God who is instructing us to do it.

Recipe Post:  (My granddaughter was visiting and helped me make this recipe. We enjoy our time together in the kitchen.  She loves to help.)

Pineapple Chiffon Pie:

Ingredients needed:
2 boxes of pineapple jello
2 cans of crushed pineapple drained (Reserve liquid to use in jello)
2 - 8 ounces cream cheese
2/3 cup of sugar
2 - 8 ounce containers of Cool Whip (I like the French Vanilla, when I can get it.)
2-3 graham cracker crusts
For garnish - 1 can of pineapple chunks and maraschino cherries

Open 2 cans of crushed pineapple and drain the liquid off.  (Reserve liquid to replace some of the water when mixing up jello.) Set crushed pineapple aside.

Measure the liquid and add enough water to equal two cups.
 Heat and bring to a boil.
(You can heat in the microwave or on the stove top.)

Remove liquid from heat.
Mix the 2 packages of pineapple jello and the liquid slowly.
  Blend well. Add 6-8 ice cubes to mixture until the ice has dissolved and then
 put in the refrigerator until soft jelled. 

While jello is jelling, mix 2 packages of cream cheese, 2/3 cups of sugar and
crushed pineapple together and blend well. 

Set aside.

When jello is soft firm, remove from refrigerator and whip with mixer,
 at high speed until light and foamy. 

Then fold it into the cream cheese, sugar and pineapple mixture. Blend well.

Fold in Cool Whip

Pour into  pie crust.

If I want fuller pies, I make 2 pies from this mixture. 
If I have a lot of people to serve, I put this mixture into 3 pie crusts. 
 (If you are making three pies and they are not as full as you would like,
you can top them with extra Cool Whip.)

I topped them with pine apple chunks and a cherry.

Garnish each serving with pineapple chunks, a cherry, some graham cracker crumbs,
and a sprig of mint.

I really enjoy fresh pineapple, canned pineapple and pineapple in many recipes. So when a friend shared this recipe with me, I could hardly wait to try it and share it with you. She said it was one of her mother's favorites. I made it on a very hot day, when many family members were at our home. It is so refreshing, and each of us thought it was delicious.    

Are you ready to enjoy it with family and friends?
