It seems to me that my Aunt Virginia in Scotland should have been a recipe developer.
There are so many great dishes that she has created, and all of them are winners. Take for example these lovely little Digestive* treats. The following photo is of her actual dessert which I took last year (note that the color of the cream in Scotland is more yellow, or cream colored, as compared to our US cream).
So it seems fitting that I share this recipe on her birthday! Happy Birthday, Aunt Virginia!
*US readers: Digestives are an incredibly popular biscuit (cookie) in the UK. More popular than Oreos!
These have to be one of the easiest desserts ever made. There’s really no need for a recipe. Simply place Digestives on a serving plate (yes, make them right on the serving plate), for as many as you’d like to make, then place a slice of pineapple on top of each biscuit. Spoon a little juice in the center of each ring. (I imagined a little rum would work, too!)
Then either spoon or pipe some freshly whipped cream (in the UK, you can spoon on double cream) into the center of the pineapple ring. Place in the fridge for a few hours before serving, so that the Digestives soften. The pineapple rings and Digestives are the exact same size, so this even looks like a perfect little dessert.
And would I be posting this if they weren’t absolutely delectable? Of course not! I love these little treats and that’s why I asked my Aunt if I could share them with you! Don’t forget, this is the same Aunt Virginia that gave me the recipe for Homemade Bounty & Mounds Bars. Let me know what you think about either of these great recipes and I’ll pass it on to Aunt Virginia herself; I’m sure she’d love to hear your comments!
