Our family has been making this dessert since the late 50's. It is a very light dessert with a consistency more like a light mousse. This is something that works well with a heavy meal, because it is almost like eating 'air.


  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 small package lemon Jello
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained (reserve juice)
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • pinch of salt
  • vanilla wafer, graham cracker, or butter cookie crumbs


  • Dissolve Jello in boiling water.
  • Add reserved juice to make 1 ¾ cups.
  • Chill until ropey (like thick syrup) and then whip.
  • Whip the evaporated milk.
  • Mix the whipped Jello and whipped milk together.
  • Add the drained pineapple and salt.
  • Line a 13x9x2 pan with vanilla wafer, graham cracker, or butter cookie crumbs.
  • Pour the Jello mixture over the crumbs.
  • Sprinkle a few crumbs over the top.
