Pineapple Cream

The Australian Women’s Weekly Picture Cookery: A pictorial guide to home cooking, Sydney c1950

Flyleaf: “We may live without poetry, music and art;
We may live without conscience and live without heart;
We may live without friends, we may live without books,
But civilised men cannot live without cooks.” 
Owen Meredith, Lucile, Pt. 1, canto 2, st. 19

This recipe was in a newspaper clipping glued into the cover of the book.

"From a new book - "Ice Cream Dishes" by Getel Beer - I liked Pineapple Cream."

Ingredients: 1 slice of pineapple per person; 1 block vanilla ice cream; 2 large tblspn ground almonds; 1 cup crushed pineapple; a few drops of kirsch

Method: Halve ice cream brick. Fold ground almonds into one half - crushed pineapple in the other. Place sliced pineapple in each sundae glass, cover with vanilla-almond ice, top with vanilla-pineapple ice. Pour over a little kirsch - or it could be maraschino.
