Notes
*If you are concerned that the eggs you are buying may contain Salmonella, then you should be buying only pasteurized eggs. It will say so on the label. These eggs have been treated to kill all bacteria, making them safe to eat (raw) in foods like cookie dough, smoothies, Caesar salad dressing, and in this delicious dessert!

      If you are concerned that the eggs you are buying may contain Salmonella, then you should be buying only pasteurized eggs. They will clearly say "Pasteurized" on the label. These eggs have been treated to kill all bacteria, making them safe to eat (raw) in foods like cookie dough, smoothies, Caesar salad dressing, etc.

    What is icing sugar? Would it be 10x sugar? Where would I find it in a grocery store?

      Icing sugar is also known as confectioner's sugar or powdered sugar. It is the type of sugar that buttercream frosting is usually made from. It is found in the baking aisle of the grocery store, next to the regular granulated sugar.

    Can the egg be left out of this. What is it's purpose? I cannot wait to make this Pineapple Delight. Many thanks

      The egg acts as a thickener by setting the butter and sugar together, yet keeping the mixture fluid enough to spread easily over the crust. As well as adds a rich flavor, and creamier texture to the filling. If you can eat eggs, I really wouldn't subitute them out. This is one of my all time favorite desserts!!
