Easy Hawaiian Pineapple Squares, simple yet delicious, a treat for everyone.  A shortbread base with a delicious pineapple topping!

Every New Year’s Eve our wonderful neighbours host a themed New Year’s party. This year they went to Hawaii for Christmas, so upon their return they hosted a Hawaii themed party.

So in the spirit of the Hawaii theme, I whipped up a batch of my Easy Hawaiian Pineapple Squares.

Pineapple is my all-time favourite fruit. I just love the flavour and the texture. This recipe is so easy to make – it’s essentially shortbread with a pineapple filling drizzled with icing on top.

You can substitute out the coconut extract with vanilla extract instead.
