Not very Southern I know, but gosh it looks so good!!
1 (20oz) can crushed pineapple “UNDRAINED”
2 boxes instant Jello coconut pudding mix (these only come in small boxes). You can substitute 1 large 6 serving size vanilla if you don’t like the coconut flavor.

2. Fold in ~1/2 of the container of cool whip.
3. Put mixture into pie crust
4. Top with the rest of the Cool Whip
5. Drain pineapple slices and arrange on top of pie.
6. Sprinkle flaked coconut on top of pineapple (If you don’t like it leave it off).

8. Refrigerate several hours and serve
