A crisp shortbread crust is topped with a chewy gooey layer of pineapple and coconut to make these Pineapple Coconut Bars. With a deep love of all things pineapple, I’ve been playing with the idea for these bars for a while now. Not too sweet and slightly tart, these bars are a fruity tropical drink in bar cookie form. I liked these bars so much that I am making them again this weekend for a family barbecue and I’ll be posting a gluten free version next week as well.
When Dole contacted me about creating a recipe with their pineapple, my reply might have been the fastest yes I’ve ever typed. I’ve been partial to Dole ever since I started buying my own groceries. Canned, fresh or frozen, I love pineapple in all forms. I didn’t even need to
go to the store for the pineapple in this recipe. I had several cans ready to use, waiting in my pantry.
