DIRECTIONS

  • Crush graham crackers into 1 1/3 cups crumbs and combine them with sugar & butter.
  • Press evenly across bottom of a 9x13" glass baking dish.
  • Bake graham crust at 350°F for 8 minutes then set aside to cool.
  • Drain pineapple and reserve the juice.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, sprinkle gelatin powder over pineapple juice and allow to stand for 2 minutes until dissolved, then microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and let stand another 2 minutes until slightly thickened, then stir back into the pineapple.
  • In a large bowl, cream together mascarpone cheese & Splenda until smooth and fold into pineapple.
  • Add sherbet & food coloring to pineapple and stir until evenly mixed (You may place mixture into the freezer for a few minutes if it seems too thin - My sherbet was too soft and so I put my pineapple/sherbet mixture in the freezer for about 15 minutes at this point until it was just about as thick as the whipped topping).
  • Gently fold in whipped topping and pour evenly over cooled graham crust.
  • Cover and freeze for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until you are ready for dessert.
  • Remove from freezer 5-10 minutes in advance of cutting into individual squares which may be decorated with optional pineapple ice cream topping and additional whipped cream.
