Millionaire Pie Ingredients

Millionaire Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1¼ cups sweetened shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (divided into ¾ cup and ¼ cup)
  • 1 (20-ounce) can of crushed pineapple, very well drained 
  • ½ cup chopped maraschino cherries plus 9 whole cherries with stems attached (one 10-ounce jar)
  • 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed (divided into 1 cup and ½ cup)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes (optional topping)
  • 1 (9-inch) premade graham cracker crust

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

COCONUT: In this classic no-bake recipe, you can substitute sweetened coconut flakes for the toasted flakes for the optional garnish. 

NUTS: You can substitute any chopped nuts for the pecans. 

How to Make This Millionaire Pie Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

To make sure that as much liquid is out of the crushed pineapple, I place the drained pineapple on a thick layer of paper towels. Then lay a thick layer on top of the pineapple. Press down to “squeeze” the remaining liquid out. It’s important to remove the excess, or your pie will not set at all.

STEP ONE: Add the coconut flakes, ¾ cup pecans, well-drained crushed pineapple, chopped cherries, and sweetened condensed milk to a large bowl. Stir to combine completely.

PRO TIP:

I also use the paper towel process for the chopped cherries to remove as much of the cherry juice as possible.

STEP TWO: Gently fold in the 1 cup of thawed whipped topping.

STEP THREE: Evenly spread the pie filling into the prepared graham cracker pie crust. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 7 hours. One hour before serving, move the pie to the freezer for sharp, clean slices. 

PRO TIP:

Give this no-bake millionaire pie plenty of time to chill in the fridge, so the filling has time to set before serving.

STEP FOUR: Add ½ cup of the thawed whipped topping to either a disposable piping bag or a quart-size Ziploc bag with a corner snipped off. Pipe dollops in the center and 1 dollop at the edge of each pie slice. 

STEP FIVE: Place the reserved maraschino cherries with stems on top of the whipped topping dollops, sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes, and reserved chopped pecans before serving.
