Audrey Caskey's Pineapple Cream

1 package (8 to 10 oz.) miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup whipped cream
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Crushed graham crackers

Place marshmallows and milk in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until marshmallows are dissolved. Allow mixture to cool. Fold in pineapple, whipped cream, and nut meats. Line pan with crushed graham crackers. Spoon pineapple cream into pan and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs. Chill until firm.

Audrey Caskey contributed this recipe to the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club of Rose, Nebraska, for a hand-written cookbook that they made during the early 1960's. I have expanded the directions a little because all the recipes were greatly condensed to fit on one side of a 3x5" recipe card. Mrs. Caskey was my teacher at Duff Valley District 4 when I was in third and fourth grades.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
