Sometimes making new desserts can lead to huge smiles and filled bellies. This Pineapple twist of a dessert got leaping praise from my family! Just a little info----it is very rich so don’t try to eat 1/2 the pie in one sitting.

Pineapple Delight

2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 c. melted butter
Mix and place 2 cups of mixture in a 9x9 pain or a pie plate.
Bake at 300 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.

20 oz. crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups powdered sugar
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. soft butter
