Here’s a variation!

Line a 9″ pie plate with pastry. Sprinkle over and press in 2 tablespoons of fine dry bread crumbs to keep the crust crisp.

Small-dice enough canned, or fresh sun-ripened pineapple to make 2-1/2 cups. Add 3/4 cup sugar if the pineapple is canned, or 1-1/4 cups if it is fresh.

Add 2 fine-rolled soda crackers and 1 unbeaten egg. If canned pineapple is used, add 1/4 cup of the juice.

Transfer to the crust-filled plate. Cover with a top crust. Press the edges together with a fork. Slash the center. Brush with whole milk.

Bake 10 minutes in a hot oven, 400 F. Then reduce the heat and bake 25 minutes at 375 F.
