Don't Be Fooled, This Pineapple Is Pure Cheese

McCall's Cooking School, 1984

    let's take a Martini break Miss C&P...shaken, not stirred for you?
  • nlpnt 6y

    Of course, that could just be Alka-Seltzer with an olive in it.

    This is really weird & wrong... & what I want to know is what happened to the rest of the pineapple after it's leafy crown was severed to cap off this monstrosity? Does the recipe specify "take one whole pineapple, cut off top & discard fruit" ????

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Pineapple Delight, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
  • Glen.H 6y

    Amusingly perverse!

    ...add a nice crystal clear acrylic coating to the above, jam the proper electric unit into the top, and the only thing left is a lamp-shade that matches your decor...

    OK, Miss C&P, can I steal this idea for the next luau? And yes, the rest of the pineapple has to be chopped up and hidden away in Tupperware...(at least, that's what I did when I made this)- Crazy Watermelon Pig

    Skip: Oh yes, please! A crisp and delicious martini is the perfect accompaniment to a pineapple crafted out of cheese!

    nlpnt: I guess that depends on whether or not it's thebeginning of the party or the bitter end.

    *Iron Lace*: It's pineapple slaughter, I tell ya!

    glen.h: Isn't it strange? And yet wonderfully so!

    TheUnrequitedTV: Is it wrong that I'm already thinking of places to put that lamp?!?

    froggyboggler: Oh yes, please! I would be honored! This pineapple would be appropriate at any style soiree! (p.s. There are directions on the back of this card, just let me know when you need them.)

    I'm ready to play that game of PureCheesi now...
  • Amara 6y

    Call me immature, but I keep picturing Spongebob coming out of that thing and taking a dip in the martini!
  • Kerry 6y

    that's just marvelous!
  • a.m.abbott 6y

    Why am I allowing this to make me hungry?!
  • Ellyn 6y

    the cheese stands alone.


    the martini goes in my belly.

    Okay, I a confession... My mom had this cookbook and used it religiously. She had a party when I was about 13 and this was my "contribution" to the appetizers. I slaved over it, shaping each pineapple petal meticulously. It was disgusting but the entire mountain of cheese was eaten by the party's end.
