Pineapple Slice

Pine3

Pineapple Slice is a yummy, creamy, cheese cake slice, yet another fantastic recipe from the Magnificently Simple Marvellous Slice Recipes cookbook. I can not understand why this ripper of a cookbook is out of print. Every single recipe works. Every single recipe tastes unbelievably good. All of the ingredients are so readily available that you probably already have them in the pantry.

Base
200gm Arnotts Nice biscuits (plain, sugared biscuits), crushed.
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
125gm melted butter

Mix all of the ingredients for the base together and press into a lines slice tin. Refrigerate while you make the topping. Try to resist eating too much of the base before you put the topping in, because it is delicious.

Topping
250gm cream cheese
425gm crushed pineapple (I think peaches or other stone fruit would be nice too)
1 tblspn gelatine
425gm sweetened condensed milk
1/2 Cup lemon juice

Cream the cheese and sweetened condensed milk together until smooth. Drain the pineapple and mix the juice and gelatine together in a small saucepan, stirring over a low heat until the gelatine is dissolved. Cool, then add the lemon juice and pineapple. Mix in to the cream cheese mix, then pour over the base.
