Mix It Up

Pineapple Coconut Squares

Posted on: July 10, 2012

You know those little recipe books you aways see at the end of check-out counters?  Well, that’s where I found this recipe.  I picked up a Taste of Home – Brownies and Bars Recipe Book and this recipe jumped right off the page at me.  Pineapple and coconut are two things you just got to have in the summer!  It has a wonderful shortbread crust and the top layer is pretty much just mix everything up in a bowl and pour it over the crust.  That easy!  The pineapple and coconut together is so refreshing!

Crust:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained

Topping:
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flaked coconut

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg.  Combine flour and baking powder; stir into creamed mixture.  Press into a 9 inch square pan coated with cooking spray.  Spread pineapple over crust; set aside.

For topping, in a small bowl, beat butter and sugar until blended.  Beat in eggs.  Stir in coconut.  Spread over pineapple.  Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack before cutting.

Yields: 16 small servings
