Pineapple Dream Cheesecake

I love a dessert that is fresh and summery and easy to make!  The crash test dummy duo loved it as well, that says a lot!

Do you ever find that when you clean out your pantry, you find that odd can of something that you don't know how that ended up in the pantry?  Crushed pineapple always seamed to be that can for me!  I used to send that can to the old can drive around Christmas.  

Then I found a recipe for something called a Pineapple Dream Cake and along came this cheesecake recipe!  If you don't have my can of crushed pineapple problem you could substitute out any tin of chopped up fruit of your choice.  This would be nice with peaches.....

250 gm package cream cheese
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 package dried biscuits, I used shortbread creams
60 gm butter, melted
225 gm tin crushed pineapple, drained
300 ml cream, whipped

Place your biscuits in the food processor and process to a fine crumb.

Mix through the melted butter.

Press half the biscuits into a square baking dish and set aside.

Beat the cream cheese and sugar together until light and creamy.

Stir through the crushed pineapple.

Stir through the whipped cream, make sure it is all combined.

Spread over the crumb base.

Top with the remaining biscuit crumb and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.

Slice and serve and remember to take your slice out first.
