Pineapple Desserts To Die For!
Here are a few of my favorite pineapple desserts which I will be adding to over time.
Pineapple Fridge Tart
This one is delicious and easy. It takes about a half-hour to make.
You Will Need:
1 packet of Tennis Biscuits
1 tin of Condensed Milk
250 ml of cream whipped
1 can crushed pineapple drained
zest and juice of 1 lemon
20 ml gelatine
Icing Sugar for dusting
Cover the base of a square or rectangular dish with a layer of tennis biscuits.
Combine the condensed milk, whipped cream, pineapple and lemon zest, and juice.
Sprinkle the gelatine over 45ml of water and allow to swell. Microwave for 15 to 30 seconds until melted. Add a little of the pineapple mixture to the gelatine, then stir into the remaining pineapple mixture.
Pour half of the mixture onto the biscuit layer and cover with another layer of biscuits.
Top with the remaining pineapple mixture.
Refrigerate for three to four hours, until set.
Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares to serve.
Pineapple Ice Cream
Who can say no to a delicious bowl of fresh homemade ice cream on a hot day?
You Will Need:
2 cups of milk
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 can of crushed pineapple, undrained
In a large saucepan, heat the milk, but don’t boil.
Stir in sugar until dissolved.
Whisk a small amount of the hot mixture into the eggs.
Return all to the pan, whisking constantly.
Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches at least 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon.
Remove from the heat and cool quickly by placing the pan in a bowl of ice water. Stir for 2 minutes.
Stir in whipping cream and pineapple.
Press waxed paper onto the surface of the custard.
Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full and freeze. Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze. When ice cream is frozen, transfer to a freezer container; freeze for 2-4 hours before serving.
