Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Ginger Peach Ice Cream Pie

Woman's Day August 2005


    • 12 whole cinnamon graham crackers (2 squares each)
    • 5 Tbsp butter, softened
    • 1⁄3 cup chopped crystallized ginger (see Note)
    • 11⁄2 cups peach spreadable fruit (All-Fruit)
    • 8 cups (4 pt) peach ice cream
    • 1 firm-ripe peach


1. Coat a 9-in. pie plate with nonstick spray.

2. Pulse graham crackers in food processor until fine crumbs form (13⁄4 cups). Add butter and 2 Tbsp crystallized ginger; pulse until crumbs are moistened. Press firmly on bottom and up sides of pie plate. Freeze 30 minutes until firm. Meanwhile, stir spreadable fruit and remaining crystallized ginger in a bowl.

3. Scoop 1⁄2 the ice cream into crust to cover, placing scoops close together. Spread 1 cup ginger-peach mixture over top; cover and refrigerate rest. Freeze pie 1 hour, or until firm. Top with scoops of remaining ice cream. Freeze 3 hours until hard, or wrap airtight and freeze up to 2 weeks.

4. Up to 1 day ahead: Peel, pit and thinly slice peach. Stir into reserved ginger-peach mixture. Cover and refrigerate until serving pie.

5. About 20 minutes before serving: Transfer pie to refrigerator to thaw slightly. Spoon on ginger-peach sauce.

Planning Tip: Can be made through Step 3 up to 2 weeks ahead. Step 4 can be done 1 day ahead.

Note: Look for tubs of crystallized ginger in the produce or dried fruit section of your market. It’s less expensive than ginger in jars in the spice section.
