Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Bake pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell, using 9-inch glass pie plate. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, beat milk and cornstarch with whisk until dissolved. Beat in egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar until blended. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in pineapple, butter and vanilla. Pour into cooled baked shell.
