From the kitchen of Connie Putano, who got the recipe from
Lena Sardo. Pineapple filling layered between 2 layers of
dough, then cut into bars.
2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c shortening
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Reserve a handful.
To the remainder add:
1/3 c milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
Thinly cover bottom of 13 x 9 pan with half of
dough. Batter will be sticky.
1 can crushed pineapple (20 oz)
1/4 c sugar
3 Tbsp tapioca
Cook all until thick. Cool.
Spread cooled pineapple filling over dough.
Use other half of dough to cover filling.
Do this by using a spoon & a knife, making
strips instead of completely covering filling.
Sprinkle top with reserved crumbs.
Bake @ 350, for 25 minutes.
