This is an old recipe. I think it's from the 30's and then got "modernized" in the 60's when blenders became popular. I even make my graham cracker crust in the blender first. This is so simple. A bit like a cheesecake. Throw everything in, blend, pour in crust. I add Cool Whip to the top. DH doesn't really like sweets, and I cutting way back (gotta save room for my chocolate fix), but when we go to a potluck dinner, I always make dessert. I made this last week, and people were fighting over the last bits. DH even ate some and loved it, so I made another, gave most to a friend with a sweet tooth, and we had a piece each.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in syrup
1 graham cracker pie crust, 9-inch size
Combine cold milk and gelatin in blender container; blend on low to soften gelatin. Add scalded milk to blender and blend until gelatin dissolves. Scrape sides of blender with spatula. Add sugar, salt, cream cheese, lemon juice, vanilla, and sour cream; blend until smooth. Drain pineapple, reserving 3 tablespoons of the syrup. Add pineapple and reserved syrup to blender mixture; blend until smooth. Pour pineapple cream cheese mixture into pie crust.
