Pineapple Cake Bars


Crust and Topping:

Pinch of salt

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¾ cup cold butter, cubed

½ cup sugar


Pinch of salt

2 large eggs

½ cup flour

1 cup sugar

16 oz can crushed pineapple

½ cup sour cream


1 teaspoon coconut extract

1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons half and half


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

For the crust, mix flour and sugar in a bowl. Cut in cold butter until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of this mixture for the topping.

Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.

In a separate bowl, mix all filling ingredients. Spread this over the pre-baked crust.

Sprinkle the reserved crust mixture on top as a crumbled topping.

Bake for 1 hour, or until the top is golden and the filling sets.

Cool the bars for 15-20 minutes.

For the icing, beat together the icing ingredients until smooth. Adjust consistency with more half and half if needed.

Drizzle the icing over the bars.

Cut into servings and enjoy.
