box (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 1/2
cups milk
Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
fresh pineapple, rind removed, cut into chunks
tablespoon rum or 1/4 teaspoon rum extract

  • 2Meanwhile, remove pie crust from pouch; gently press crust in bottom and up side of 8-inch cast-iron skillet, leaving crust overhanging edge of skillet.
  • 3Add pineapple, rum and 1/2 cup of the coconut to pudding; stir until well combined. Spoon into crust. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup coconut.
  • 4Fold crust edge over filling, pleating as necessary and leaving filling uncovered in center. Brush crust with egg.
  • 5Place skillet on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 14 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool slightly before serving.

    Expert Tips

    If you want to make hand pies instead, cut pie crust into 6-inch rounds. Spoon pudding mixture on each round; fold crust over filling and press edges firmly with fork to seal. Be sure to lightly oil one side of the pie so it doesn’t stick to the grill. Place pies, oiled side down, on grill. Cook 8 minutes; turn and cook other side until crust is golden brown.
    Top with toasted coconut and vanilla ice cream for a fun summer treat.
    Thanks Pillsbury
