DIRECTIONS

  • Place filling ingredients in a large saucepot. Allow to reach boiling point. Reduce heat and let simmer 5 minutes, mixing often. Remove from heat and let cool completely. May be done earlier in the day or day before.
  • Dough:
  • In a large bowl work the flour and the butter (or margarine) as you would for pie crust.
  • Add the sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and mix well.
  • Add vanilla, eggs and milk, adding a little at a time until dough comes together. Depending on the flour you may have to add a little more.
  • Dough should be pliable enough to be able to roll out on a floured surface. Divide into 2 pieces.
  • Take one piece and roll out dusting with sufficient flour to prevent sticking. Using a 12x17 cookie sheet with sides, place dough into ungreased pan allowing the sides to come up the sides. Don't cut off excess dough.
  • Pour in filling and even out making sure the corners are evenly filled inches (Filling recipe follows).
  • Again, flour surface and roll out other piece of dough and place on top.
  • Press dough around the edges to seal in pineapple filling. Then cut around to remove excess dough. Brush top with well beaten egg. Bake 350 deg. for 45 minutes.
  • Let cool. Cut into desired squares. May be dusted with confectioners sugar.
