This pie (see full recipe) is described in the cookbook as "A pie with flair--deliciously combining avocado, pineapple and cheese." While one acquaintence of mine said "that's sounds like one of the most disgusting things I've ever heard," I thought it was so crazy it just might work. Although this cookbook contained much odder fare like "ring around the tuna" and "chicken mousse," The avocado pie was the one I had to try.
The pie was fairly easy to make although I made the mistake of trying to use a not-quite-ripe avocado, so the avocado mashing was more strenuous than it should have been. The pie came out well nonetheless and looked like a retro delight. As for the taste, I thought it was actually pretty good. The flavor was dominated by the lime jello and pineapple, so the avocado and cream cheese mostly just added texture. For some reason, though, I COULD NOT GET ANY OTHER PERSON TO TASTE IT! Maybe they were twice shy after the Tuna Delight Salad Mold incident, but every person who came to my house for the next three days was enthusiastically offered avocado pie and everyone turned it down. So even though this pie was actually fairly interesting and enjoyable, I'll probably never make it again because I'll be eating it alone.
