|2 sticks unsalted butter||2 tsp. almond extract|
|4 egg whites, stiffly beaten|
|6 Tblsp. cocoa powder|
|1½ Tblsp. lemon juice||2½ c. vanilla wafers, crushed|
|3 Tblsp. pineapple juice||whipped cream|
|1½ Tblsp. vanilla extract||1 jar maraschino cherries|
Cream softened (not liquified) butter with the sugar and cocoa using a fork. Then add lemon and pineapple juices. Add vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.
Fold in stiff egg whites and nuts. Sprinkle ¼ of the vanilla wafer crumbs in the bottom of each of two 8½"×4½"×2¾" loaf pans. Add all of the pudding, ½ to each pan. Then sprinkle the remaining crumbs on top of the pudding in each pan.
Refrigerate until firm before serving. Top each portion with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry, and cherry juice. Keep unused portions refrigerated. Each pan provides 10 to 12 servings.
