TIME: 0:30    PREP: 0:30    LEVEL: EASY    YIELD: 4

INGREDIENTS

3 c. finely crushed graham crackers
12 tbsp. butter, melted
1.5 cups fresh, diced and crushed Chestnut Hill Farms pineapple
2 c. heavy cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make crust: In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs with butter and stir until combined.
  2. Make pineapple layer: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, heat crushed pineapple until thick and jammy, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make cream layer: In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in cream cheese and sugar. (For best results, transfer mixture to a piping bag.)
  4. Among four mason jars, layer graham cracker crust, pineapple (using a spoon), and cream, alternating until you reach the top of the jar.
  5. Garnish with toasted coconut and serve.
