Saturday Recipe Share: Pink Stuff for the Holidays

I'm planning my Thanksgiving Day menu. One of the desserts I'll prepare is something that my Mom always made to rave reviews.

Unfortunately, it's really high in calories, but it's a dessert that everyone loves. It tastes light even though it's not, but it is super easy to make. My sister-in-law still makes this for the holidays.

Pink Stuff: Delicious Dessert With Weird Name

Whoever originally created Pink Stuff must have named it that because it's a lovely shade of pink, and it's not a cake, pie, cobbler, or cookie. It's just a bunch of ingredients mixed together then chilled. Another plus: no baking required.

This is possibly the easiest dessert recipe you'll have see.You can mix it up in a big bowl and serve in that bowl at a casual family-style buffet, or you can scoop it into crystal martini or champagne glasses. Make it even prettier by topping with: nonpareils, chocolate sprinkles, a scattering of crushed butter cookie crumbs, or pipe some extra whipped cream on top.

Pink Stuff (My Sister-in-Law Judy's Recipe)
  • 1 can (21 1/2 ounces) Comstock Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 can (15 1/2 ounces) of pineapple, chunks or crushed, chilled and drained
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk (like Eagle brand)
  • 8 ounces of heavy cream whipped without sugar OR a container of whipped topping, defrosted
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows, optional
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Refrigerate at least a couple of hours before serving.

Takeaway Truth

Be sure and serve yourself some because there won't be any leftovers.
