I’m so excited for the Summer; hot sun, beach, volleyball, golf, and outdoor play time with my son, Jack. I absolutely can’t wait! With Summer, also comes the enjoyment of yummy light and refreshing desserts. Pineapple delight is one of those personal favs from childhood. Every piece I have never seemed quite big enough; I would (and still do) slice extra slivers of yummy goodness from the main dish to eat, until the sad moment when there’s no more to sneak.
Pineapple Delight is a perfect finish to a family BBQ or a relaxing beach day. Enjoy with a delicious crisp white wine, tea or coffee.
2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
2 (+/-) tbsp. sugar
5 tbsp. melted butter
Divide: use ¾ for base & ¼ to sprinkle on top.
Bake base portion for a few minutes (~8 minutes). Cool.
½ cup soft (not melted) butter
1-½ cups icing sugar add
Beat till fluffy. Spread on cooled crust.
Drain: 1 large pineapple can (tidbits or crushed). I prefer crushed.
Sprinkle on cream layer.
Cover with 1-2 cups stiffly beaten whipped cream. Spread over dessert.
Top with remaining ¼ cup crumbs.
Refrigerate at least 8 hours.
