Serves: 5
Total Calories: 1,384
Yield: 4 dozen


4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter
1 cup shortening
4 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple in syrup
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Powdered Sugar Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Pineapple Squares:
Blend flour, baking powder, butter and shortening in a large bowl; set aside. Mix egg yolks, vanilla and sour cream; add to flour mixture. Mix well and shape into a ball; chill for 3 hours to overnight. Combine pineapple with syrup, sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook until thickened. Divide dough into 2 portions, one slightly larger than the other; roll out 1/4-inch thick. Press larger portion into bottom and sides of a lightly greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan; spread with pineapple mixture. Place remaining dough over top; pierce with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes; cool. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze; cut into squares.

Powdered Sugar Glaze:
Whisk together to a drizzling consistency. Add more milk, if needed.

Tip: Make your own flavorful vanilla sugar. Fill a canning jar with 2 cups sugar, push a vanilla bean into the sugar and let stand for one to 2 weeks.
