recipe: pineapple delight

March 14th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Desserts | RECIPES

This is a dessert my mom made whenever she had a dinner party.  It brings back memories of wonderful leftovers (hopefully) after all guests departed.  This is where my love of any dessert with a graham cracker crust started.  It is rich but still light… the perfect ending for a special evening.

 

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS:
• 18 graham crackers, crushed
• 2 sticks butter, melted
• ¾ cups of sugar
• 4 tablespoons of corn starch
• 1 cup of water (can use ½ cup of water & ½ cup of pineapple juice)
• 1 cup of crushed pineapple
• 3 egg whites
• 2 cups heavy whipped cream

 

DIRECTIONS:
• Mix graham crackers and melted butter and line the bottom of a square pan with ½ of the     mixture.  Save the other ½ for later.

• Mix the sugar, corn starch, and water together and cook over medium heat until thick.

• Take off heat and let cool.

• Once cooled down, add 1 cup of crushed pineapple.

• Beat the 3 egg whites, then add the pineapple mixture.

• Pour mixture into graham cracker crust. Top with the rest of the graham cracker mixture.

• Refrigerate for an hour.

• Whip 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and spread on top.

 

Enjoy!!!

Keep refrigerated.
