I am looking for a dessert my mother used to make many years ago. I don't know the name, but it has a graham cracker crust and cream cheese, crushed pineapple and I believe it had eggs also. Does anyone have a recipe? Thanks so much!

I grew up in the 60s. Mom always made "Frozen Pineapple Desert". It was my favourite and I have made it a few times as an adult. She still has the tattered recipe card in her recipe box! I'll have to ask her where the recipe came from.


Frozen Pineapple Desert

1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple
1/3 cup pineapple juice
2 eggs separated
2 Tbsp. cream
2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and the sugar. Mix together egg yolks and cream and cook slightly until thick. Cool egg mixture and combine with creamed butter. Add pineapple and juice. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into pineapple mixture.

In a 13 x 9 glass baking dish, layer graham cracker crumbs, then pineapple mixture. Top with a final layer of graham cracker crumbs.

Cover the baking dish with cling wrap and freeze. Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.

I am looking for a pineapple dessert recipe. It was a weight watcher's recipe years ago. Had plain gelatin, pineapple and I think powdered milk. I am diabetic and would love to have it again.

I appreciate any help.

Here is another pineapple dessert that is fine for diabetic meals, or anyone on low fat, low calorie or low cholesterol diet.

1 box of ONE-STEP angelfood cake mix
1 20oz can crushed pineapple.
Mix the dry cake mix with the undrained pineapple.
Put in 9 X 13 pan that has been sprayed with PAM, Bake 30 mins at 350 degree.
Very good topped with thawed whipped topping or ice cream.

Hi, My husband has been a diabetic for over a decade. He is not allowed to have fruit (sugar content) or starches. Our daily check is only 100. I don't think fruit, sugar and starch recipes are the way to go for diabetics. They need salads, veggies and lean meats. We love them and need to support them by dieting with them. When out, we opt for conversation and pass on the lovely desserts offered. It may sound difficult, but it would be worse to live without by beloved husband.

I have a recipe for Weight Watchers but I'm not sure if it is good for a diabetic. It uses Fat Free Cool Whip, Sugarless White Chocolate Pudding, 1 can of crushed pineapples and 1-2 small cans of Mandarian Oranges. My kids love it and any time I make it for a special occasion, people always ask for the recipe. Good Luck.

I'm diabetic as well. My dietician told me I can eat canned fruit, but only 1/2 a cup, as one serving. I'm to drain all juices off of them by pouring into a colander & rinsing the remaining juices off with water. Drain well & then I am able to use the fruit. Not all diabetics are alike. Some can eat foods that other diabetics can't. If a recipe sounds too good to be true, don't take any chances with it. Nothing is as important as your health. The dietician also stressed having a piece of small fresh fruit over canned fruits, if at all possible. You need the fiber of the fresh fruit more. A small portion (1/2 cup) of fresh fruit salad isn't all that bad. Everything in moderation.

I am looking for a Pineapple dessert with a soda cracker crust. It was in a Ramsey County MN 4 H cookbook about 30-35 years ago. I lost the book and miss the dessert. Thanks for any help.

Is this it? I found it on

Cracker Crumb Cake

6 egg whites
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups white sugar
36 saltine crackers, finely crushed
2 cups chopped pecans

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking pan.
In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. Fold in cracker crumbs and pecans until evenly blended. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake springs back when pressed in the center. Cool completely before frosting.
To make frosting: Mix together the crushed pineapple and whipped topping. Spread over cooled cake, and refrigerate until serving.

It is not the same one but this one sounds very good and might taste close to same.
The one I am looking for had the crushed crackers as the bottom layer and whipped egg whites on top of that and no nuts.
I am going to try this one too. Thank you and surprised you found it online I searched but had no luck at all for any with soda cracker crust.
