Pineapple Dream Dessert

I love finding old recipes I made
 a million years ago and forgot all about.
This is that recipe.

It is so easy you won't believe it.

And it looks good done!

And tastes even better!
2 1/2 cups graham crumbs (2 sleeves)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups of powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz container Cool Whip
20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained well
*Preheat oven to 300 F.

*Melt butter in the microwave and allow to cool. Combine the crumbs and butter and toss together until incorporated. Press 2 cups of the crumb mixture firmly into an 9×9 square pan and bake for 8-10 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool.
*Beat the cream cheese and butter together until creamy. Turn the mixer down to low and add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until incorporated. 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. Spread the cream cheese and pineapple mixture over the crust.
*Fold the remaining pineapple into the Cool Whip and spread on top of the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker crumb mixture on top. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

I had forgotten all about this recipe and when I found it I had so many fun memories of my kids when they were small and being so excited over desserts! lol so funny!
