Pineapple Cheesecake Squares makes a lovely, fresh springtime treat.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups fresh pineapple, chopped into very small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1, 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1, 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Directions

  1. Measure 1/2 cup of the pineapple and set aside. In a small saucepan, add the remaining pineapple with the cornstarch and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Set aside.
  2. Spray a 13x9 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium-sized bowl combine the flour, sugar and margarine and beat until finely crumbled. Stir in the chopped almonds. Press the mixture firmly onto the bottom of the baking pan.
  3. Using a mixer, beat the cheese and milk until smooth. Add the remaining pineapple and the egg. Beat until mixed well. Pour mixture over the crust in the baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.
  4. When cool, cut into squares. Spread the reserved pineapple onto of the squares and serve.
