            Okay, so not sure about the dreams, however, I am more than sure about the taste of this. It will surprise you! If you have just a matter of minutes and a few simple ingredients, this dessert will be sitting on your dinner table tonight!

Not only will you have a slight crunch from the crust, you have the smooth creaminess of cheesecake and the soft, delightful texture of pineapple throughout the cheesecake. This is so easy and versatile you could bring it to a potluck, a party or even use it as cute little dessert bites for meetings.

            I find that when I bring this to a party or potluck, I have to bring double. So many people are asking for seconds on dessert. I also print out a couple of copies of the recipes so that I can share the joy easier. Other options for toppings could be shaved white chocolate, shaved milk chocolate or cherries and pineapple combined.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use fresh pineapple?

Yes, you can. For this recipe, I used canned pineapple to make it super easy.

            Can I make my own crust?

You could definitely make your own crust. I just had a store bought crust in my pantry and it made this recipe even quicker to make.

            Should I use crushed pineapple or pineapple pieces in this recipe?

You could use either one. I really think that the crushed pineapple is the best to use since there is much more to spread throughout the cheesecake.

            How do I store this cheesecake?

You can keep this in the refrigerator for days, (if it lasts that long). You just need to be sure to put it into an airtight container.

            Can I freeze this cheesecake?

It will sit well in the freezer for up to 2 months as long as you have sealed it to prevent freezer burn. I usually wrap it in a couple of layers of plastic wrap, the aluminum foil and then place it into an airtight container.
