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. I wasn't sure what this slice would be like but it looked intriguing and tasted wonderful! And I had to have the recipe for my stash of tried-and-true dishes I make again and again.
I found out who had brought the dessert to the potluck and got the recipe and tried it at home and it was every bit as good.
The slightly exotic flavor of this dessert makes it perfect for summertime get-togethers or for whenever you want a creamy-tasting delicious dessert.
Pineapple Delight should be made in an oblong dish, so that it can be cut into squares. And if you have one that has a snap on lid, all the better.
- 2 cups crushed graham wafers
- 1/2 cup (scant) melted butter
Mix thoroughly and keep out 1/2 cup to sprinkle over the top of dessert.
Press mixture into a 9"x12"- 9"X13" oblong pan.
Bake 10 minutes at 300 degrees.
- 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 over completely cooled graham crust.
- 1 (fat) tin of crushed pineapple (well drained)
- 1/2 pint (or more) whipping cream
Whip cream until stiff and in peaks. Fold in pineapple carefully with a spatula. Spread this mixture over the 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.
