Pineapple Pie Filling Dessert

A small, quick-to-prepare collection of delicious pineapple pie filling desserts to add to your recipe box. Did you know that one piece of pineapple pie (average size, usually 1/8th of a 9-inch pie) has more than twice as much calcium and vitamin C than other regular fruit pies? It does! If you enjoy pineapple, enjoy it in pie knowing you’re not only getting a treat, but a nutritional boost as well.

Pineapple Turnovers

Ingredients
1 can pineapple filling
Pastry for one crust pie
