Pineapple desserts serve up a taste of the tropics, no matter where you live. Crushed pineapple fills this tangy, buttery bar.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, well-drained
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup sliced almonds
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine all crust ingredients in medium bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 cup; set aside.
Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir together 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan. Add pineapple and lemon juice; mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 4-5 minutes or until mixture is thickened. (Mixture will be very thick.)
Spoon filling over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Top with almonds. Continue baking 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

I think this recipe would do better in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Tastes good though. Had to make extra dough.
I was disappointed. I loved the idea of a pineapple cookie--my Dad's favorite. But, like another reviewer, I thought the crust was too thin and it broke apart easily. I thought there was not enough filling, and it was gummy. I will try this again--after all, pineapple is Dad's favorite, but I will use a smaller pan, maybe 9x9, and not drain the pineapple, for a thick, but not gummy, filling. I'll keep you posted.
