Waikiki Dessert


This dessert lives up to the quick and easy tag…my husband made it in minutes.  I didn’t even soften the cream cheese first, as he used an electric hand mixer.  It tastes like a cross between pudding and cheesecake.  The second time we made it we left out the sugar and it was sweet enough even with pineapple canned in juice.  We recommend chilling at least a half hour.
