How do I make Hawaiian Pineapple Delight Dessert Recipe?
- You’ll start by crushing graham crackers adding butter and making a buttery graham cracker crust. For 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs, you’ll need about 1 and 1/2 sleeves of graham crackers.
- I like to pulse the graham crackers in a food processor for quick crumbs.
- This crust will need to bake then cool completely before adding the next layer.
- This dessert actually has three layers. The second layer seeps into the crust and doesn’t for a distinct layer. To make the second layer, mix softened butter, eggs, vanilla extract until smooth then gradually beat in powdered sugar. Spread mixture on top of graham cracker crust and bake.
- You’ll again need to cool the dessert completely before adding the whipped topping layer.
- Finally, the dreamiest pineapple whipped topping is spread on top. For this, you’ll combine the very well drained crushed pineapple and whipped cream. Gently fold the pineapple together then spread over the last layer.
- Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it.
- If you want to garnish the top, crush a few more graham crackers and distribute over the top.
- Cut into squares and serve cool.
Hawaiian Pineapple Delight Dessert Recipe is a great make-ahead dessert. It stores nicely stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. After a couple of days, the crust begins to get a little soggy.
