-40 vanilla wafers
-1 (14 oz)can sweetened condensed milk
-1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple
-1 (8 oz) tub whipped topping, thawed
-1 (7 oz) package sweet coconut flakes
-1 (10 oz) jar marachino cherries, drained, with stems removed
Line the bottom of an 8x8 square pan with 20 of the vanilla wafers.
In a medium bowl, juice the lemon. Add the milk and mix very well. Stir in the crushed pineapple, with the juice from the can. Mix well and pour over the wafers. Top with the thawed whipped topping. Smooth it evenly across.
Top with the coconut flakes. Press it down carefully. And yes, it is a thick layer of coconut, but it's needed. :) Place the cherries all over the top.
Carefully cover with foil and refrigerate for about 8 hours. Enjoy!
