The combination of tart pineapple and smooth cream cheese is irresistible in a dessert that's made easily with Pillsbury™ unroll-and-fill pie crust.
Updated Jan 12, 2010

Ingredients

Crust

Filling

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1 egg

Topping

  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in syrup, well drained, 1/4 cup liquid reserved
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Unroll pie crust on work surface. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar; roll in lightly with rolling pin. Press crust, sugar side up, in bottom and up side of 10- or 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Trim edges if necessary.
  • 2
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Reduce oven temperature to 400°F.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add 1/4 cup sugar, the coconut extract and egg; beat until well blended. Pour into partially baked shell. Carefully spoon pineapple over cream cheese mixture. (Pineapple will not completely cover cream cheese.)
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is puffed around edges and set.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix reserved 1/4 cup pineapple liquid and the cornstarch until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until glaze boils and thickens. Spoon pineapple glaze over pineapple. Cool completely, about 1 hour, before serving. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Many people like the flavor of coconut but not its texture. We've used coconut extract to add the flavor without the texture.
