Pineapple Cream Crumble Dessert

Ingredients & Substitutions

For the Crust and Topping:

  • Graham Crackers: You’ll need approximately 26 sheets, which equates to about 4 cups when crushed. Pre-purchased graham cracker crumbs are a convenient alternative.
  • Butter: Essential for binding the graham cracker crust, make sure it’s fully melted to evenly coat the crumbs.

For the Filling:

  • Pineapple: Two 20-ounce cans (approximately 567 grams each) of crushed pineapple, thoroughly drained. Feel free to experiment with different fruits like strawberries or blueberries for a variety of flavors.
  • Butter: Adds richness to the filling.
  • Cream Cheese: Brings a creamy texture and a slight tang to offset the sweetness of the other ingredients.
  • Confectioners’ Sugar: Provides the necessary sweetness to the filling.
  • Whipped Topping: While homemade whipped cream is preferable for flavor, store-bought whipped topping is perfectly acceptable for convenience.

Can I Use a Different Sized Pan?

This recipe is designed for a large batch, suitable for feeding up to 12-24 people depending on portion sizes. It’s formulated for a 10×15-inch (25×38 cm) baking dish. Using a 9×13-inch (23×33 cm) pan is possible but the mix may reach the top, making it potentially messy in the refrigerator.

Storing Your Dessert

Keep the Pineapple Dessert refrigerated and covered. It will maintain its freshness for 3-4 days.
