A neighbor at the cabin used to make something similar to this, we always called it Mrs McClure's Coconut pie. I loved it growing up, and it's soooo easy.

I made this pie yesterday. It was delicious, but fell in the middle after coming out of the oven. Don't know what to do about that.

Usually with that much egg (because it is almost a custard) it will be puffy when it comes out of the oven and as it cools it deflates. That's why souffles are historically served warm. Hope that helps!

Can you use a different fruit, other than pineapple?

Don't see why not, you don't have to use any fruit just coconut if you'd like.

Cannot wait to make this - but if you use canned crushed pineapple do you drain it?
