Fluffy Cream Cheese Dessert
Vanilla wafers, cream cheese, pineapple, and whipped cream make this the fluffiest dessert ever. If you don't like pineapple, add 1-2 cups of your favorite fruit, crushed - or my favorite - mini chocolate chips.Yield: 1 9 x 9 pan
|FOR THE CRUST:|
|2 1/2 cups||crushed vanilla wafers|
|1/2 cup||unsalted butter|
|FOR THE LAYERS:|
|2 cups||powdered sugar, sifted|
|1/2 cup||unsalted butter, softened|
|8 ounces||cream cheese, softened|
|1 cup||whipping cream, whipped|
|1 (20-ounce) can||crushed pineapple, drained well|
Melt butter in the microwave and allow to cool.
Combine the cookie crumbs and butter and toss together until incorporated. Press 2 cups of the crumb mixture firmly into an 9×9 square pan.
Beat the cream cheese and butter together until very creamy. Turn the mixer down to low and add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until it is all mixed together.
Next add the can of pineapple (or fruit of choice) and whipped cream and stir in with a rubber spatula.
Spread the pineapple mixture over the crust.
Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumb mixture on top. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
