Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Crushed Pineapple in 100% juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 baking pan with waxed paper. Sprinkle 1 cup of vanilla wafer crumbs on the bottom of the lined pan. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks, then add the sugar and salt.
  • Drain the juice from the pineapple. Set the pineapple aside and add the juice to the egg yolks. Add the lemon juice and mix well.
  • Cook this mixture in the top part of a double boiler, stirring constantly, until the mixture is slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and add the crushed pineapple. Allow this mixture to cool.
  • Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, like meringue.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.
  • Fold the meringue and whipped cream into the pineapple mixture.
  • Pour this mixture over the vanilla wafer crumbs and spread gently to smooth it out.
  • Sprinkle the remaining vanilla wafer crumbs over top the filling.
  • Freeze for 3-4 hours or until firm.
