Our Angel Food pie uses simple ingredients and no fancy techniques. This no-bake dessert is a great make-ahead recipe. Let me show you just how easy it is to make.

The great thing about Angel pie with pineapple filling is that it’s perfect year-round. The sweet citrus just reminds me of a warm sunny day.

What is Angel Food Pie?

I first came across this Angel Food Pie recipe when my mother-in-law gifted me with her recipe box. I’ve seen recipes for “Angel Pie” which uses a pie filling and is made in a baked meringue crust. I wasn’t able to find any duplicates of this recipe which combines a simple thickened pineapple filling with soft egg white peaks then poured into a ready-made crust.

I love that this creamy pie is so quick and easy to put together any time of year. It won’t heat up your kitchen during the hot summer months and is a light and creamy dessert after a heavier comfort meal during colder months. John loves my Pineapple Cream Meringue PieLemon Ice Box PieMargarita Pie recipe, and Raspberry Daiquiri pie so I had to give this fluffy cool pie a try.

Angel Food Pie Ingredients

Angel Food Pie Recipe Ingredients

  • Sugar. White granulated sugar
  • Crushed Pineapple. Use the canned version. I don’t recommend fresh pineapple for this recipe.
  • Flour. All-purpose flour thickens the pineapple pie filling.
  • Egg Whites. Grade A large egg whites.
  • Salt. A little kosher salt or table salt brings out the sweetness of the other ingredients.
  • Whipped topping. I served my pie with whipping cream. You can make your own or purchase some as shown in the video.
  • Pecans. I crushed some pecans as a garnish. This is optional.
  • Pie crust, baked. Make your own or purchase one.

How to make Angel Pie Recipe

You can make this pie easy or easier. I’m including images of the pie made with my golden brown butter crust and homemade whipped cream and images of a pre-made store-bought crust with canned whipped cream. Both are delicious.

Note: This angel pie goes into an already baked (blind-baked) pie crust. Make sure the crust is cool before filling it.

1st Step: In a medium-sized saucepan mix sugar, flour, and salt together. Add water gradually, mixing until smooth. Add pineapple and cook until the mixture thickens. Set aside to cool.

2nd Step: Using an electric mixer fit with the whisk attachment, and beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

3rd: Using a spatula, fold the cooled pineapple filling and egg whites together.

4th Step: Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust. Refrigerate to chill for 6 hours or overnight before serving. Garnish chilled pie with crushed pecans and whipped topping if desired.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to consume raw egg whites?

Raw eggs can carry a bacteria called salmonella. Pasteurized eggs are subjected to heat which reduces this risk. Source.

Can I freeze Angel Food Pie?

Even though I’ve never attempted to freeze this pie, I wouldn’t recommend it. The texture of the filling can change and cause the crust to become soggy.

How do you store Angel Pie?

This pie must be stored in the refrigerator. I cover it lightly with plastic wrap. It doesn’t need to be kept in an air-tight container. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Tips for the Perfect Angel Food Pie Recipe

  1. Make sure the crust is completely cool before filling it.
  2. We love the taste of the sweet filling with our butter crust. If you don’t want to make a crust you can buy one. This pie would be delicious in a graham cracker crust too.
  3. Make sure your egg whites are at room temperature when you whip them. If you forget to take the eggs out of the refrigerator, you can immerse them in room-temperature water for 5 minutes.
  4. Make sure you don’t have any egg yolk in the whites. That will prevent your whites from whipping.
  5. Don’t over-whip the egg whites. Once they come to a peak, they’re finished. Once they’re overwhipped, they’ll start to break down and you’ll have to start over.
  6. It’s easiest to slice this pie directly from the fridge or after 10 minutes in the freezer. If it gets warm, it’s harder to get a clean slice.
