Pineapple Icebox Cake

From South Milwaukee, here’s a recipe for Pineapple Icebox Cake. It isn’t technically a cake, more like a blancmange or a panna cotta. Both of these dishes are molded gelatin desserts, though a blancmange can also be made with corn starch instead of gelatin. It’s definitely a 20th century dessert, not something I personally would enjoy. You could use different fruit if you don’t like pineapple.

1 package lemon jello

1/2 cup pineapple juice

1 cup pineapple cut fine

1/2 pint whipping cream

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

16 graham crackers rolled fine

When the jello begins to set, add the whipped cream and the sugar/graham cracker combination. Mix until thoroughly combined. Pour into a bread pan (or a fancier mold), chill until firm. Unmold and serve.
