Tasty Tuesday–Pineapple Bars

Everybody knows and loves lemon bars, but I started wondering, what other flavors would work. I came up with this recipe for pineapple bars (with a hint of coconut), and they taste just like summer!

Shortbread Crust

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9×13 pan with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray. Blend flour, softened butter, sugar, and coconut extract in a medium bowl until well combined; press into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden.

Pineapple Filling

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

While crust is baking, whisk together eggs and pineapple juice. Whisk in sugar and flour until smooth. Pour over hot crust, then return to oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until set. Cool completely before cutting into squares and dusting with powdered sugar.
