Recipe for Buttery Pineapple Bars


Shortbread is delicious on its own, but when topped with pineapple topping and a drizzle of frosting, it is elevated to an almost ethereal level. Buttery Pineapple Bars are delicious on their own or they make a perfect accompaniment to pudding or ice cream. They are attractive, too, so they make a nice addition to a cookie tray.

Since canned crushed pineapple is always available, these bars will be a popular year-round treat.

48 Bars or Squares

Shortbread:
1 1/4 cups butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 batch Microwave Pineapple Filling
Glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 to 4 tablespoons milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 325.

  2. Line an 11 x 17" jellyroll pan with parchment.

  3. Measure the cold butter, sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until crumbly.

  4. Dump the mixture onto the prepared jellyroll pan and press evenly over the pan.

  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

  6. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

  7. When cool, spread the pineapple filling over the surface of the shortbread.

  8. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, butter, lemon juice, and enough milk to make a glaze consistency.

  9. Drizzle the glaze over the pineapple filling.

  10. When the glaze has set, cut into 48 squares or bars.

  11. Store for up to a week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
