Frosted Pineapple Squares

Frosted Pineapple Squares

My mother asked me to make this dessert for her birthday “cake” last month, as it was a childhood favorite of hers my grandmother used to make.  My grandmother passed away earlier this year, but we resurrected the original recipe from her recipe box; my mother said the bars tasted like she had always remembered.

Coincidentally, today would have been my grandmother’s 87th birthday.  This is the first year I will not be making her a birthday cake since I started baking some ten-plus years ago.  I bake hundreds of things throughout the year, but that was one of my favorite annual baking traditions, as I gave her a break from the kitchen and cooking for others, and made something special for her to enjoy.  I hope I will continue to discover these recipes that she made well before my time so I can replicate these gifts she made for others.
