Recipes for pineapple Cool Whip desserts are Pineapple Dream Dessert and Pineapple Pretzel Salad. The main ingredients include whipped topping, cream cheese and crushed pineapple.
To make Pineapple Dream Dessert, combine 2 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs and 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter until the crumbs are moistened. Press 2 cups of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of a square baking pan, and bake it at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for eight to 10 minutes.
