Pineapple Slice

This is another one of my grandma’s recipes, and one of my favorites. Oh, fine, they are all my favorites. It’s a given. This is a light, airy, just sweet enough dessert that now has taken top place in my husbands heart over the old one, cherry cha-cha, another family classic.

She used to put 2 raw eggs in the middle layer, not something I recommend for a family-with-young-kids recipe, but I am sure, nay, positive I ate this as a child and well, obviously never croaked, but never got sick either. I wasn’t willing to risk it on my kids, because it depended on my own talent at keeping the mixture cool and refrigerated, as well as trusting that the eggs were properly handled before they reached the supermarket. You can buy pasteurized eggs, and perhaps those would be best in this.

Ingredients:

Crust:
2 1/2 cups graham crumbs (better if you make them yourself)
1/2 cup of margarine

Middle layer:
2 cups of icing sugar
1/2 cup of margarine
1/2 cup of cream cheese (or 2 eggs)

Topping:
1 cup of whipped cream
1 large can pineapple

Melt the margarine and combine the first ingredients for the crust. I crushed the wafers myself and it made such a lovely, chunky, solid crust! Press 2/3 of the mixture firmly into an 8×8 (or a 9×9) pan and bake at 300 for 8-10 minutes.

When the crust is cooling, whip up the cream cheese (or eggs) icing sugar and margarine.

When the crust is completely cooled, spread the mixture on top.

Sigh. Swirly……creamy……lovely, just absolutely lovely.

Time for the topping! Whip up the cream until, well, it’s whipped cream. Fold in the very well drained pineapple.

Put the topping on, then sprinkle the rest of the graham crumb mixture on top. Refrigerate overnight for best results, or at least 4 hours if it’s for the same day.

Never miss a recipe again!

This is great to make and everyone loved it, but I had to disconnect my computer and haul it into the kitchen. I can't see anywhere on here where it says to print the recipe I really didn't want to print out all your pictures, especially in colour. Any advice, or is there a print icon somewhere that I can't see.

@susan  What I do if their is no print button, I just copy and paste it to  word pad and then print it from there. It's better that way because then I can change the font size bigger before I print the recipe. Hope this helps.
