Four and twenty blackbirds?

Yesterday evening, I was struck with a sudden inspiration to bake a pie. I already knew how to make a basic pastry. So I just needed something nice for the filling. I didn't have the classic "four and twenty blackbirds". But I had a jar of the preserved peaches I made a few weeks ago... and I also had a slightly overripe pineapple (which I was tempted to buy for $1.50 last week). Pineapple and peach pie? Will it work? There's only one way to find out...
Voila!!! A dainty dish to set before the "king" of the household.
(As you can see, it was so yummy that we couldn't resist taking generous slice each before I had a chance to snap a photo)
