Recipe for Juicy Pineapple Squares


    Juicy Pineapple Squares

    4 cups flour
    1 cup granulated sugar
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup milk

    2 (15 ounce) cans crushed pineapple, juice included
    1 cup granulated sugar
    3 tablespoons cornstarch

    Combine flour, sugar and baking powder, then cut butter into the dry ingredients. Mix in the eggs and milk. Form dough into a ball and chill.

    Combine filling ingredients and cook until thickened; let cool.

    Divide dough in half. Roll out to fit a jellyroll pan. Spread cooled filling over dough. Roll out remaining dough and cover filling with lattice strips. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. When cool, dust with confectioners' sugar or drizzle with a thin confectioners' sugar glaze.

    Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
