Ambrosia Pie

One of my husbands favorite dishes that I always make during the holidays and often through out the year is Ambrosia. Ambrosia is considered a southern tradition that contains whipped cream, pineapple, oranges and coconut. Chopped nuts are often in the mixture as well.

Ambrosia is also the nectar of the Gods. Many consider this salad to be heaven sent The recipe i share today in this post is for Ambrosia Pie just like the salad it is easy to make and takes less than 20 minutes to make up.

For the Crust:
1 1/2 cups finely ground windmill cookies or speculoos
3 Tbsp sugar
7 Tbsp melted butter
For the filling:
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped pecans
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
5 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp lime juice
2 cups whipped topping (a.k.a. Cool Whip)

To make the crust:
Preheat the oven to 350°. Stir together the cookie crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter until the mixture holds together when pressed between your fingers. Press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate. Bake crust for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
To make filling:
Stir together the coconut, pineapple, mandarin oranges, pecans, condensed milk, lemon juice, and lime juice. Gently fold in the whipped topping. Pour filling into cooled crust. Chill pie for at least 2 hours, or until set.
