Preparation Time: 30 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Additional: 4 hrs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- ⅔ cup butter
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
- ½ cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- ⅔ cup unsweetened pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained with juice reserved
- ½ cup heavy cream, whipped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, confectioners’ sugar, and almonds. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press crust mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13-inch pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Set the crust aside, and leave the oven on.
While the crust is baking, prepare the cream cheese layer. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in 2/3 cup unsweetened pineapple juice. Pour over the hot crust and bake until filling is set, about 20 minutes more. Allow to cool completely.
Make the topping: In a saucepan, combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 cup reserved pineapple juice. Bring to a boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in crushed pineapple. Cool completely. When cool, fold in whipped cream. Spread topping over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 4 hours before serving.
