This Hawaiian Ice Box Pie is a no-bake delight that can be enjoyed year-round. The only difficult part is, waiting for it to chill before devouring.
Hawaiian Ice Box Pie
This island inspired pie is packed with the flavors you might associate with a summer vacation. It's the type of pie you would find regularly sitting in my Mom's and my Grandma's fridge. In particular I remember these types of pies being made for impromptu visits from friends or family. It was standard routine to be prepared to have a little something sweet to go with it to offer to them. Perhaps a generous slice of pineapple cake, warm banana bread, or a piece of pie. Ice box pies that require no baking are a terrific choice for such an occasion, and remain a warm weather favorite at our house.
The inspiration for this ice box pie comes from my friends over at Southern Living Magazine. The pie that inspired this Hawaiian pie is a frozen version. I adapted the ingredients to convert it into an ice box pie that didn't require freezing to hold together.
- This pie needs to be made and allowed to chill thoroughly preferably overnight, before slicing.
- I top this pie with toasted macadamia nuts to keep with the island theme but, if you prefer pecans or walnuts either would be fantastic as well.
- It's the kind of dessert that's meant to be shared, so invite a few friends over and enjoy a low stress sweet tooth satisfying treat. And a few laughs, too.
