THIS WONDERFUL old recipe was a treat during the Depression. We didn't have dairy topping in those days, so we enjoyed it with real, heavy cream. Mother served this as a special treat for our family. During celebrations we got to eat it in glass dishes with a cherry on the top. —Barbara Thomas Berkeley Heights, New Jersey

"Tasted good, but I think it needs either more rice or less pineapple.

Served 4 at our house.
Forgot to drain the pineapple; turned out fine though. Used 1 cup whipped topping instead of whipping the cream; still added the sugar and vanilla though."

"My mohter made this and called it "Glorified Rice", which was a treat for our family too. Mom added cherries (cut in quarters) along with the pineapple. Yummy."
