    Default Millionaire's pie

    This pie is impressive-looking and yummy, and can be made with no-fat cream cheese instead of full fat. I guess you could use Cool Whip instead of whipping cream, but I think the taste would be compromised.

    Millionaire's Pie

    18-ounce package cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sugar, plus 3 tablespoons
    Grated zest of 1 lemon
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
    1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
    1 cup diced fresh strawberries, plus whole ones for garnish
    1 cup diced fresh pineapple or canned pineapple chunks, well drained and diced (do not use crushed pineapple)
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    19-inch prepared graham-cracker crust.

    1. Beat the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, zest and lemon juice in a large bowl with the mixer at high speed until smooth. Fold in the pecans, coconut, strawberries and pineapple.

    2. Beat the heavy cream, 3 tablespoons sugar and vanilla in a chilled bowl until stiff; fold half the mixture into the cream-cheese mixture. Pour into crust; spread rest of whipped cream on top. Garnish with whole berries. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

    Yield: 6 servings.

    It is really good. I made it for my mother's birthday and there were no leftovers.

    If I don't have pineapple, or someone doesn't like it, you can always leave it out or substitute something else, like kiwi. I usually use unsweetened coconut because I don't like super sweet things.
