Pineapple Delight Dessert
This Pineapple Delight Dessert recipe is one of those classic pineapple desserts that has been a favourite of so many people over the years. There is just something so delicious about pineapple and whipped cream that just goes so well together in recipes. This recipe for pineapple dessert can be enjoyed any time you want it because it suits any season and practically any occasion. You could make it for mid-summer barbecues when the weather is hot, or celebrations of the winter solstice or Christmas time and any time in-between of course. This pineapple delight recipe is also quick and easy to make, and it includes some good ingredients, even though pineapple is healthy, the whipped cream is a bit on the high fat side, but sometimes you just have to set aside your nutrition counter, and allow your heart and soul to enjoy one for a change. That is exactly what you should do with this recipe for pineapple dessert.
This is one of those pretty simple crushed pineapple recipes to make where you can just buy a couple of cans of pineapple at the store to use in the recipe. The longest part of the recipe's process is waiting for the dessert to sufficiently chill to set, and of course for the flavours to come together and commingle well. Give it enough time to do so, and the dessert to taste its very best as a result. This pineapple desserts recipe begins with the standard graham crust, which is followed by a butter and sugar mixture that is some what cookie like and which you bake with the graham layer. This double layer must be well cooled before adding the next layer, which could easily melt everywhere if it is added too soon to the cake. Then the third layer is a blend of whipped cream and delicious pineapple. This layer is made with real whipped cream, which is a decadent and delicious addition. You will definitely want to use the real whipped cream instead of the artificial commercial whipped toppings which can be full of artificial flavours and chemicals to preserve it and give it the texture and colour.
You also want to be sure to read this recipe over before you begin to bake this pineapple delight recipe. It appears to suggest that there are four layers to this dessert including the crust, filling, a pineapple layer and a final topping. However, the pineapple layer and topping are actually blended together as one layer that sits on top. If you wanted a fourth layer you could add a thin coating of plain sweetened whipped cream to the very top for added creaminess, but its up to you. So if you have been looking through crushed pineapple recipes, then maybe give this one a shot. When it comes to pineapple desserts, it doesn't get much easier than this one. You could also have your kids get in on the baking fun. This would be an easy recipe for them to start out with to learn a lot about measuring, timing, and creating a recipe from scratch. All kids love creating new things and many kids love helping out in the kitchen and feeling a part of the action. If you don't like pineapple, you could try this recipe out with a substitution of cherries or strawberries, or perhaps a fruit mix. This recipe would be lovely with banana in it as well. So there are plenty of recipe options to try out if you or someone in the family is not partial to pineapple.
