This layered chessecake-style dessert is good, but not exceptional. I made it for dessert last night, and I couldn't wait the suggested 4 hours before trying it. After 2 hours in the fridge it was o.k., but the crust was crumbly and didn't hold together well. I had another piece today and it was much better. The crust absorbed some moisture from the other layers and was much more tender and solid. The only other complaint I have with this dessert is that the cheesecake layer and the pineapple/whipped cream topping layer aren't that distinct (like the photo suggests). I followed the recipe, but maybe a longer cooking time for the cheesecake layer would create a more definitive layer. My mother also mentioned that she misses the dominant creamcheese flavor of most cheesecake-style desserts. There is a hint of creamcheese flavor in this, but it mostly hits just a creamy, pineapple note. Good, but not great.
