This Pineapple Fluff Icebox Cake with Toasted Coconut is the perfect summer dessert. It’s refreshing, light, and tropical!
Not too long ago when I was hanging out with my dad, he mentioned a dessert my grandmother used to make called pineapple puff. I love trying to recreate old recipes but sometimes they take a little research. After a bit of looking, I finally found a recipe on the Kraft website and I’m pretty sure it’s the version my grandmother made. It calls for Stella D’oro Anginetti Cookies which (sadly) are no longer being made…so I decided to take the “puff” part of the recipe and spin it into an icebox cake.

That icebox cake recipe is what I’m sharing today, along with a delicious collection of recipes made by a group of bloggers who love to spend time in their kitchens! We’re featuring easy and fresh recipes that are perfect for summer. More on that at the end of the post.
The base for all my icebox cakes is graham crackers and Cool Whip. From there, it’s fun to experiment with different flavors, fruits, and toppings. When I think of pineapple, I think tropical. That’s why I topped this icebox cake with toasted coconut. What could be more tropical than pineapple paired with toasted coconut? Of course, if you don’t like coconut, just skip that step!
Like most icebox cakes, this version keeps in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. In fact, the longer it sits, the better it gets. It’s the perfect dessert to take to a summer potluck or picnic. It could easily be doubled and made in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
I’m still really curious about the Stella D’Oro Anginetti cookies, so if you know anything about them, please leave a comment and give us all the scoop!
