Pineapple IceBox Cake

This has to be my favorite dessert as a kid. It’s an icebox cake, a “cake” made of pudding, cookies and fruit. You can make it in a casserole dish like my mom use to, or make it in a springform pan like I have done here. It’s easy-peasy and great for potlucks and parties.

Pineapple IceBox Cake

Ingredients:

2 boxes (6-serving size each) vanilla pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
5 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup pineapple juice
2 cans (20 oz each) sliced pineapple, drained
1 box (12 oz) vanilla wafer cookies
2 cups whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions:

In 2-quart saucepan, cook pudding mix, milk and pineapple juice as directed on box.

In 9-inch springform pan, place a single layer of cookies. Top with a single layer of pineapple. Pour 2 cups of the cooked pudding on top. Repeat layers, using remaining cookies, pineapple and pudding (you will be short 1 pineapple slice on top; add extra cookies to this spot). Cover; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.

In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar; beat until incorporated.

To serve, carefully remove side of springform pan. Top cake with whipped cream just before serving.
