My dad used to swipe pineapple from the officers mess on his destroyer. I made this for him for Fathers day. I read the recipe and thought, wow thats a lot of sugar. Cut it back to one cup, nothing to think about. Still plenty sweet. Waiting for it to get cold, now. Good thing I made two!

Pineapple Pie Bars

Ingredients:
  • 2 (9 inch) pie shell

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple - peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (225 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Mix in sugar, lemon juice and chopped pineapple. Pour into pie shell and dot the top with butter. Cover with top crust, crimp edges to seal, and cut a few slits for steam vents.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake 35 minutes more, until golden brown.
