Pineapple Squares

People accept been scream for for years for the erstwhile version of this Pineapple Squares recipe but I accept been reluctant to postal service 1 because I but don’t brand them the erstwhile means whatsoever more. This is my endeavor to laid upward what was a pretty flawed recipe, I think.

The erstwhile recipe I had seemed to hold out the same 1 that appeared inwards many church building ladies cookbooks inwards the say years ago. The squares were especially sweetness amongst canned pineapple mixed int creamed butter frosting which contained a raw egg. Not truly a recipe I’d dare to postal service nowadays.

What was amongst that raw egg anyway? It of 10 caused the frosting to split upward together with hence the juice from canned pineapple made it fifty-fifty worse. There had to hold out a ameliorate way, together with that egg was the start matter that had to go.

This version was inspired past times a local supermarket bakery where they did a version that was icing saccharide based buttercream frosting at the centre mixed over again amongst pineapple. Again, this was quite a sweetness confection but I did relish their version.

I pose the see of reinventing the recipe on the dorsum burner until late when I was making a Pecan Pineapple Carrot Cake for my friend Terry’s birthday. I e'er work fresh pineapple inwards that recipe together with never truly purchase canned pineapple at all whatsoever more.


  1. To educate the graham crumb base
  2. Measure the graham crumbs into a small-scale bowl together with brand a small-scale good inwards the centre.
  3. Pour the saccharide into the well, hence pour the melted butter onto the sugar.
  4. Let this correspond a span of minutes to allow the butter seep into the sugar. Then stir good to combine all ingredients together. The role of this pace is to teach a skilful contact betwixt the butter together with sugar.
  5. Press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9x9 inch baking pan that has been lightly greased together with lined amongst parchment paper. (For a thinner version amongst less frosting at the centre y'all tin work a 9x13 inch pan together with teach 50% to a greater extent than squares too. See NOTE for adjustments below.)
  6. To educate the pineapple frosting centre
  7. Cream together the butter together with cream cheese until smooth.
  8. Beat inwards the vanilla extract.
  9. Slowly start adding the icing saccharide a niggling at a time.
  10. Beat until smoothen together with the consistency of the frosting is really stiff. Usually y'all would consider it besides strong to frost a cake at this stage.
  11. Fold inwards the finely diced pineapple. The pineapple should hold out drained of all juice. I truly allow mine sit down inwards a colander lined amongst newspaper towels.
  12. Spread evenly over the prepared base of operations together with chill for several hours or overnight.
  13. To educate the Vanilla Whipped Cream
  14. Beat together the iii ingredients until strong peaks form. Spread evenly over the chilled pineapple frosting layer.
  15. Store inwards the refrigerator until ready to cutting together with serve.

Recipe Notes
Since these are really rich cookie squares, You tin work the same amount of filling inwards a 9x13 inch pan if y'all like. This volition brand the squares nigh 1/3 thinner, addition y'all volition teach nigh 1 1/2 times to a greater extent than servings.

Simply increase the bottom together with transcend layers by  1 1/2 times the recipe together with exit the filing every bit it is.

If y'all are freezing these cookie squares, I would advise freezing them without the whipped cream topping together with hence adding the topping when thawed together with ready to serve.

Although it is non my preference, many non-dairy whipped toppings volition freeze pretty good if used every bit the transcend layer.
