I am a big fan of Taste of Home Cookbooks and have many of them. I always feel that their cookbooks are tried and true. A couple of weeks ago my hubby took one of the cookbooks down and was thumbing through it and telling me all of the recipes he thought I should try.......The funny part are some of them I had already made or at least made them somewhat like the recipe but because they didn't look like the pictures he didn't think he had eaten them. Long story short, I made this recipe from Taste of Home Guilt Free Cooking.
Pineapple Coconut Dessert
2 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp sugar (I used Zulka Morena Pure Sugar)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup sugar (I used Zulka Morena Pure Sugar)
2 cup flaked coconut (I used sweetened coconut)
Coat 9 inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven 325 degrees.
To make crust: beat butter and sugar together in mixing bowl. Add egg and beat. Combine flour and baking powder and stir into egg mixture.
Press into 9 inch square dish.
Spread crush pineapple over crust.
To make topping: Beat butter and sugar in mixing bowl. Add eggs and beat. Stir in coconut.
Spread coconut mixture over pineapple.
Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes until topping is a golden brown. Cool. Cut into squares.
Verdict: Wonderful light, not too sweet dessert. This dessert would be perfect after a big meal. I think that it tasted even better the second day when all the flavours came together. The only thing that I may do differently is decrease the crust slightly. I am thinking maybe that I could slightly reduce the flour as the crust seemed too thick.
