No-Bake Mondays: Pineapple Cream Pie

No-Bake Pineapple Cream Pie

Today, we fancy it up a bit.

This No-Bake Pineapple Cream Pie begs to be made on days I miss the taste of summer. Or just about any day I need a refreshing break from cake or chocolate, which, yes, are few and far between.

Feeling extra-festive (on this pretty fall day), I layered the pie in a wine glass and served it over Sunday lunch. It was a hit!

No-Bake Pineapple Cream Pie
Serves 3
In minutes: 20

1 can pineapple chunks, drained
1 8 oz cream cheese
3 pcs graham crackers
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup walnuts (or more)
whipped cream

1. Beat cream cheese and sugar. Add pineapple chunks, walnuts, and cover with whipped cream (I say about 10 seconds worth). Mix until smooth.
2. In a Ziploc bag, crush graham crackers until reduced to crumbs. Tip: You can also use ready-made Graham cracker pie crusts (or Oreo crusts! YUM). Another tip: sprinkle some of the drained pineapple juice on the crust.
3. In a bowl or glass, layer cream and Graham cracker crumbs. Garnish with pineapple chunks, walnuts, and whipped cream. Refrigerate for at least two hours. Ta-dah! Chocolate chips optional but recommended.
