In a bowl, place cracked eggs, sugar, corn syrup, salt, vanilla extract, cinnamon and melted butter. Mix up with a rubber spatula.

Place chopped pecans in the frozen pie crust and then pour in the mix above and you will start to see the pecans float up. 

Place the pie crust in the center rack of the oven.

After 60 minutes, take pie out and let cool for at least 120 minutes. 

Then when ready to serve, consider adding a nice , rich scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Haupia Pie

Submitted by April F.

Aloha & Alii! This easy no bake recipe comes from Hawaii with easy to find instant ingredients. Haupia is a coconut flavored dessert with a Jello-like consistency often found at luaus and parties. It is delicious when layered with chocolate fudge and sweet whipped cream. Serve it with a cup of Kona coffee.


1 box Jello Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding/Pie Mix

1 box Instant Hawaiian Coconut Pudding Haupia Mix **

1 Pie Crust (premade or your own recipe, I use premade graham cracker crust)

Cool Whip Topping

Chocolate Shavings (optional)

How to:

1. Prepare Jello mix per box instructions. Spread 1 cup prepared pudding mix in pie crust. I place in fridge until Haupia is done. 

2. Prepare Haupia mix per box instructions. Carefully spread 1 cup prepared liquid Haupia mix on top of Jello pudding. I do this in 1/4 cup increments so I don't spill or dent the Jello.

3. Carefully place pie in fridge for at least an hour; Haupia layer must solidify. 

4. Cover pie with layer of Cool Whip and top with optional chocolate shavings. 

** I find Hawaiian Haupia mix in the "Asian" aisle of my local Albertsons. It is also sold at Cost Plus World Market.

Mahalo and Sulang!
