Pineapple Delight: Dessert That's Light as a Cloud
Pineapple delight offers a creamy taste of the tropics. This is a dessert recipe you'll make again and again.
I first tasted pineapple delight at a potluck. The creamy taste was the perfect finish to our barbecue.
The slightly exotic flavor of this dessert makes it perfect for summertime get-togethers.
This desert should be made in an oblong dish, so that it can then be easily cut into squares.
- 2 cups crushed graham wafers
- 1/2 cup (scant) melted butter
Mix thoroughly and keep out 1/2 cup for top of dessert. Press mixture into a 9"x12"- 9"X13" oblong pan. Bake 10 minutes at 300 degrees. Cool completely.
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- Vanilla to taste (1/2 tsp.)
- Enough milk or cream to make spreadable
Mix well and spread on completely cooled graham crust.
- 1 ("fat") tin of crushed pineapple (well drained)
- 1/2 pint (or more) whipping cream
Whip cream until stiff. Fold in pineapple. Spread on second icing layer.
Top pineapple delight with the reserved graham cracker crumbs. Cover and chill in fridge overnight so that slice sets and the flavors combine.
