"As the name says, this delicious recipe is from my Grandma. She makes it for many of our family gatherings. It is so yummy with a creamy pineapple pudding layer sandwiched between vanilla wafer crumbs. Try it for your next get together and I guarantee you it will be the hit of the party."
1 cup milk
1 pound package of mini marshmallows
1 pint of whipping cream
1 (20 ounce) can of crushed pineapple, drained very well
1 (11ounce) box of vanilla wafers, finely crushed (2/3 of the crushed vanilla wafers will be used for the bottom crust and the remaining 1/3 of the vanilla wafers will be sprinkled on top.)
In a large saucepan over low heat, heat milk until scalding (before milk boils). Add mini marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
In a mixing bowl, whip whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold drained pineapple into whipped cream.
To make the pineapple pudding, combine the cooled marshmallow mixture with the pineapple mixture.
To assemble dessert, layer about 2/3 of the crushed vanilla wafers on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Pour the pineapple pudding over the vanilla wafers. Sprinkle the remaining crushed vanilla wafers on top. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
