Use Your Electric Mixer
Use your electric mixer to quickly make the pineapple filling. Just stir the coconut in by hand before pouring into crust.
Since this filling will curdle if the pie is overbaked, be sure to remove pie from the oven when center is almost set and a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. The filling will firm up as it cools.
