Hawaiian Pineapple Bars

 

I’m loving these Hawaiian Pineapple Bars!  They are really easy to make and a fun change from the usual bar recipes.  The pineapple gives them a perfectly chewy edge with a soft center.

Tenaiya found this recipe on the Lost American Recipes website and sent it to me.  It originated in a compilation cookbook by the “Maui Extension Homemakers Council.”

Ingredients:

2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

4 eggs

20 oz. can crushed pineapple, well drained

1 cup chopped walnuts, optional

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs and mix well.  In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda.

Add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and mix well.   Add the pineapple and optional walnuts and stir until well-combined.

Pour batter into a greased 9 x 11 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let bars cool completely.  Cut into squares and store in an airtight container until potluck time!
