I love no bake desserts in summer especially this particular summer when we experienced quite a heat wave with temperatures in the upper 90s and heat index of over 100 F. I am from the Philippines so I should be used to this muggy weather, I know, but trust me, even I didn't enjoy it a bit! Thankfully, there are many sweet treats to enjoy this summer and to help us cool down, too. Certainly, this Millionaire Pie is one of them!

I discovered this classic pie when I was looking for a no bake dessert to feature on our 30 Day Challenge and also to serve on our church potluck. I didn't get the chance to feature this yummy pie earlier as our readers in an online vote on our page chose the strawberry pie to be posted ahead. But, I promised them that before summer ends, the recipe for Millionaire Pie will follow. So, here it is.

As you can see, it is totally loaded with yumminess - crushed pineapple, cream cheese and then pecans! How you can go wrong with such a combo? And it takes no longer than 15 minutes to make especially if you use a store-bought graham cracker crust. Most, of all it's no bake and when the temps go as high as 100 F you certainly wouldn't want to turn on the oven even to make a dessert!

It was so good that after tasting the first one, I decided to make another one! The pie sets really well so it's not a pain to slice which makes this a true winner in my book!

    1. It is done in 15 minutes but you need to chill it until it's set for perhaps 2-4 hours. Thanks Dannii!

  3. So pretty! It's funny, the last place I can remember seeing this pie was at a church potluck many, many years ago. This took me right back AND reminded me how good it was. I must make this soon!

    1. Here it is Mehnaz -
      1 cup dried shredded or dessicated Coconut, unsweetened (unless you want it sweeter). I used the unsweetened one but if you want it sweeter then you can use the sweetened one. Enjoy!

  5. Years ago, I had this pie at a Potluck dinner. I just prepared one a few moments ago. It's chillin' in the refrigerator now. I hope my Husband will enjoy the surprise dessert and be delighted, as much as I have come to love this dessert.

  6. Years ago, I had this dessert at a Potluck dinner. I just prepared one, this afternoon. I left out the Coconut because my family doesn't like Coconut. I am hoping that my husband will enjoy the surprise dessert that I prepared when he gets home from work. I am so glad that I found this recipe on your blog.
