Light and airy, this Layered Pineapple Dream is a heavenly dessert that you could eat forkful after forkful of. Made with a graham cracker crust and layers of luscious cream cheese, Cool Whip and pineapple filling, this easy dessert recipe would be perfect to make for a spring or summer get together with friends and family. When you bring this awesome layered dessert to a potluck or party, you're sure to get rave reviews from the crowd.

Chilling Time: 4 hr

Cooking Time: 10 min

  • For the Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups graham crumbs (2 sleeves)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • For the Layers:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple, drained well
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in the microwave and allow to cool.
  3. Combine the crumbs and butter and toss together until incorporated. Press 2 cups of the crumb mixture firmly into an 99 square pan and bake for 8-10 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool.
  4. Beat the cream cheese and butter together until creamy. Turn the mixture down to low and add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until incorporated.
  5. Turn up and beat well for a minute or so. Add a heaping tablespoon of the drained pineapple and stir in with a rubber spatula.
  6. Spread the cream cheese and pineapple mixture over the crust.
  7. Fold the remaining pineapple into the Cool Whip and spread on top of the cream cheese mixture.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker crumb mixture on top. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Can this recipe be made with real whipping cream instead of Cool Whip?

Yes I can be made with real whipping cream. In fact an easier route to go would be to top it with a pineapple zest.

What is the total servings for this recipe?

This was AWESOME!!!! I put a heaping tablespoon of crushed pineapple (well drained) in the cream cheese part and the rest of it I folded into the CoolWhip. It was wonderful and so easy to make. I would recomment putting Saran Wrap over it when you refrigerate it, tho.

how can u add a heaping tablespoon of pineapple juice?u cannot heap up liquid!!

The recipe says to add a heaping tablespoon of drained pineapple, not juice.

I'm so sorry... Not sure why it posted my comment twice.

This is sooo yummmy. I grew up on this dessert..or even an awesome breakfast. you will love it

How about strawberry or blueberry?

Use the crushed.

OH MY!!! My Grandma would make whatever cake we wanted for our birthdays and this is the one I had many years!! I have looked and looked for this recipe as she is with the Lord now. TY TY... AWESOME, cake y'all!!! You won't be disappointed!

MODERATION in CONSUMPTION, dear Francett 1280237! ;-)

What type of pineapple do you use? Chunks, tidbits, sliced, or crushed?

I used crushed as that was the only thing I could find in that ozs stated.

This may be light in texture but 1 cup of butter used in a 9 inch square pan, doesn't equate to light on the calories or figure.
