To make graham cracker crust, combine cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press into botom of 9 inch by 13 inch pan.

When cutting through this dessert, it looks a little like stained glass. I have made it in an angelfood cake pan for nice tall slices. To remove from angelfood pan, cut around sides with a long knife and then invert on serving plate. Crumbs will then be on the top. Run knive around base of pan and crumbs to remove.
I also have made this eliminating the pineapple and also adding an orange jello.

This is an easy dessert to convert for diabetics; use sugarfree jellos and a little sugarfree sweetener in the crumbs instead of sugar. This recipe dates back to the 1960's.
