  • 8 ounces vanilla wafers
  • 20 ounce canned crushed pineapple drained
  • 1 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon
  • 2 pasteurized eggs
  • 3/4 stick of margarine
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream


  • Crush vanilla wafers in a food processor until a fine consistency. Pour half into the bottom of a 9x9 dish.
  • Cream margarine, sugar, and eggs until thick, then pour over vanilla wafers.
  • Drain and then pour the crushed pineapple in an even layer, then top with half the pecans.
  • Add vanilla and one tablespoon of sugar to heavy whipping cream and whip, then pour over nuts, then top with the other half of crushed vanilla wafers.
  • Chill and then slice into squares before serving.



I've seen some recipes call for graham cracker crust. It's an easy substitution if you don't have wafers on hand.
