Welcome to my little recipe box on the net. This is a place for me to share my family's favourite recipes with friends and relatives. Some have been handed down through the generations and some I have just collected over the years. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do and that I don't make you too hungry. *g*

Frozen Pineapple Delight

Here is another yummy Christmas favourite I grew up with. And it's really convenient as well. You can make it up well in advance and keep it in the freezer until the morning you are going to serve it.

Frozen Pineapple Delight

2 cups vanilla wafers
1/4 cup melted margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup soft butter or margarine
1 1/4 cup icing sugar
2 eggs
1/2 liter whipping cream *
1 14-oz can crushed pineapple
Maraschino cherries

Combine wafer crumbs and margarine. Place all but half a cup in 9x12-inch cake pan and press. Cook at 275°F for 15 minutes.

Beat butter/margarine until smooth. Add icing sugar, then eggs one at a time and beat until smooth. Add vanilla and spread over crumbs.

Whip cream until stiff, combine pineapple. Spread mixture in pan. Sprinkle crumbs on top and decorate with cherries. Freeze. Take out of freezer and put in fridge the morning to be served.

* An Imperial quart is approximately the same amount as a Metric liter.

Thank you soooo much for this recipe, I had a copy from 1980, and it was partly ruined by water. And was unable to read the quantities and instructions. Mine had that you could add Chopped cashews to it also.
