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 just had to have the recipe to add to my stash of tried-and-true dessert dishes I make again and again.
I found out who had brought the dessert to the potluck and I 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.
