Pineapple Nut Ice Box Cake
Why I Love This Recipe
This was my father's favorite "cake" that my grandmother used to make. She has passed away and now he looks to me when he gets a sweet tooth.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 15 oz. can shredded pineapple (slightly drained)
2 egg whites
Cream together butter and powdered sugar, adding sugar 1/2 cup at a time.
Add pecans and pineapple.
In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form then fold into pineapple mixture. Line the sides and bottom of a casserole or baking dish with Vanilla Wafers.
Spread pineapple mixture evenly over wafers in dish. Crumble and generously sprinkle more vanilla wafers over top of "cake".
Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.
Serve with whip cream.
