Sky rockets in flight. Pineapple Delight

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.
