Ingredients
Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs divided use
  • 1/2 cup butter

Filling:

  • 4 oz cream cheese (1/2 block) softened
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 8 oz container frozen whipped topping (COOL WHIP) thawed
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple drained well


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. Crush graham crackers. Also, drain crushed pineapple.
  3. Melt 1/2 cup (1 stick butter) in the microwave in a medium, microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Add 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs to the melted butter and stir until combined.
  5. Measure out 2 CUPS of the crumb mixture and press it firmly into the bottom of an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 square baking dish (whichever you have)
  6. Bake crumb mixture for about 8-10 minutes and then allow to cool completely.
  7. You'll have some crumb mixture (1/2 cup) left over. Just hang onto it because you'll need it for the topping.
  8. In a stand mixer (or using an electric mixer), beat the cream cheese and butter together until creamy.
  9. If using a stand mixer, turn it down to low and add the powdered sugar slowly until it is all incorporated and smooth.
  10. Now add in a heaping tablespoon of the drained pineapple and give it a good stir.
  11. Next, spread the cream cheese mixture over the baked and cooled graham cracker crust.
