Mona’s Pineapple Dessert

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

For those of you who do not know, Mona is my mom. It was a joy being able to watch and learn from her. I have been thinking about her alot, proobably because I am heading to New Orleans at the end of the week. I wish she would have been here to see my book, but I know that she is smiling down on me. Here is another one of her recipes. With warmer weather approaching, I thought that this would be a refreshing dessert.

1 cup Butter, melted

1 1/4 cup Flour

2 tablespoons Sugar

1 (20oz) can Crushed Pineapple

4 Egg Yolks

1 tablespoon Corn Starch

1/2 cup Sugar

4 Egg Whutes

1 cup Sugar

Mix butter with flour and 2 tablespoons sugar. Pat into a 9×12 inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Put pineapple into a sauce pan and thicken with egg yolks, cornstarch, and 1/2 cup sugar. Bring to a boil and spread over the flour mixture. Cover this with meringue made by beating 4 egg whites with 1 cup sugar until very stiff. Return to oven and bake 30 minutes. Cool in oven for 1 hour.


I will be heading to New Orleans Thursday night. Instead of my regular recipe post on Monday and Thursday, I will be giving my daily eating recap. So check back each day to see my dining blog.
