How to make a baked Pina Colada Cream Pie:

Bake or purchase a 9-inch Pie Crust. If baking from scratch, bake for 10 minutes until light brown. Place on a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

For the Pineapple Filling:

Whisk together the cornstarch and sugar in a saucepan. Pour in the crushed pineapple, including the juice.

Allow mixture to come to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for one minute or until thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool, about 20 minutes.

For the Coconut Cream Filling:

Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add in coconut cream and rum extract, beat just until blended. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Perfect Pie Crust recipe. I was short on time and used a pre-made crust from the refrigerator section, which shrunk up. It is still delicious, just not as perfect as I would have liked. Lesson learned.
  • Feel free to use vanilla extract instead of the rum extract.
  • For more coconut flavor, substitute a 1/2 cup of chilled coconut milk (the Thai Kitchen type in a can) for 1/2 cup of whipping cream when you make the topping. I tried using coconut cream (Coco Lopez) but it is too runny and would not set.
  • The coconut cream used for the filling is the same Coco Lopez that is used to make Pina Colada cocktails. It is sweetened, so that is why there is barely any sugar added to this recipe.
  • Store this pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, wrapped with plastic or in a plastic pie carrier that seals.
