Absolutely loved this recipe and I will be making it again for my sisters 70th! Thank you so much for sharing it!Sheila
I used 1/2 cup of cottage cheese in place of the butter in the filling. Add a little powdered sugar to it and let it sit for a little bit for a little extra sweetness in the cottage cheese. It works well and tastes good in place of the butter.
I made this for my neighbors, mother, wife and two grandchildren today. Not experienced in dessert making, but it turned out perfectly, and was a hit. Thanks for posting this, and keep up the good work! (I got by with 1 1/2 sleeves of graham crackers.)
Sometimes I even use a little more cause I’ve noticed I always want more topping 😉 I cheat and buy the already crushed crumbs!! I use strawberries most the time but am trying mixed berries tonight (cause of the season rasp, black, blueberry) it’s in the fridge now haha! Love this recipe make it at least once a month !!
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cups icing sugar (powdered sugar)
1 tsp vanilla
2 can of crushed pineapple, drained (about 1 cup)
Whipped Cream Topping
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
3 Tbsp icing sugar (powdered sugar)
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 13 X 9 pan lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter until well combined and crumbly. Press into prepared pan.
Bake for 10 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.
In a separate bowl, mix together butter, icing sugar, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth.
Drop by spoonfuls over crust (once it has completely cooled), and gently smooth to form an even layer.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
Beat the whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until it is thick and stiff.
Drain the juice from the canned crushed pineapple.
Mix the whipped cream and pineapple together and spread evenly over top of the cooled butter filling.
If you want to make it a little fancier, garnish the dessert with a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs.
Cover and chill until ready to serve, at least 2 hours.

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake Recipe
This recipe becomes a favorite as soon as it is tasted. It was once referred to as ‘sinfully rich and velvety smooth’. Best if made a day before serving.

Combine the chocolate wafer crumbs, softened butter, 2 tablespoons white sugar, and the cinnamon. Mix well and press mixture into the buttered springform pan, set aside.
In a medium sized bowl beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add 1 cup white sugar mixing until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat at low speed until very smooth.
Melt the 8 ounces semisweet chocolate with 2 tablespoons whipping cream in a pan or bowl set over boiling water, stir until smooth.
Add chocolate mixture to cream cheese mixture and blend well. Stir in sour cream, salt, coffee, 1/4 cup coffee liqueur, and vanilla; beat until smooth. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
Bake in the center of oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes. Center will be soft but will firm up when chilled. Do not over bake. Leave cake in oven with the heat turned off and the door ajar for 45 minutes. Remove cake from oven and chill for 12 hours. Just before serving top cake with mounds of flavored whipped cream and garnish with chocolate leaves. Yields 16 servings.
To Make Flavored Whipped Cream: Beat whipping cream until soft peaks form, then beat in confectioner’s sugar and 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur.
To Make Chocolate Leaves: Melt 1 ounce semisweet chocolate in a pan or bowl set over boiling water, stir until smooth. Brush real non-toxic plant leaves (such as orange leaves) on one side with melted chocolate. Freeze until firm and then peel off leaves. Freeze chocolate leaves until needed.
Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe
This is a wonderful pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust. The gingersnap really does make a difference.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the crushed gingersnap cookies, pecans, and butter. Press into the bottom, and about 1 inch up the sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake crust 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and vanilla just until smooth. Mix in eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Set aside 1 cup of the mixture. Blend 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg into the remaining mixture.
Spread the pumpkin flavored batter into the crust, and drop the plain batter by spoonfuls onto the top. Swirl with a knife to create a marbled effect.
Bake 55 minutes in the preheated oven, or until filling is set. Run a knife around the edge of the pan. Allow to cool before removing pan rim. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
