Anna Olson


1 cups all purpose flour
cup sugar
cup unsalted butter

2 large eggs
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
tsp. baking powder

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cups icing sugar, sifted
1 tbsp. orange juice and pineapple juice
tsp. vanilla

For shortbread base, preheat oven to 350F and line 8" pan with parchment paper so it hangs over side of the pan. Combine flour, sugar and cut in butter until it's a crumbly texture. Press crumbs into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Cool completely. For filling beat eggs by hand with brown sugar. Stir in pineapple, coconut, vanilla, flour and baking powder and spread over cooled base. Bake for about 25 minutes, until it's an even golden brown color. Cool. For icing beat all ingredients together until smooth and spread over cooled pineapple layer. Let set before slicing into bars.
