Fabulous Thursday Food: Pina Colada Bars

I've moved a few things around this week so the Fridays recipe is on Thursday this week. Its actually because I wanted to post the big study reveal tomorrow and I have a few last minute pictures to take!!

This recipe is such a good one from a totally fabulous blog called Sugar and Charm which is packed full of lovely recipes. Do go over and take a look These bars are perfect for summer picnics and totally remind me of hot holidays (which is fab as I'm off on one tomorrow!)

 Here's the recipe:

Pina Colada Bars

Sugar and charm blog
2 cups flour
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup butter

Combine all the ingredients until the dough clings together. Press the dough into a 9x13 un-greased pan. Bake for 17 minutes at 350 degrees.

Pineapple Filling
4 eggs
1 cup fresh squeezed pineapple juice 
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Mix the eggs together first. Then continue to mix in the rest of the ingredients. Try not to over-mix the filling... a tip would be to add the dry ingredients together in a bowl first. Take the crust out of the oven and pour the pineapple filling on top. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Let it cool completely before you cut into squares or shapes. Once the shapes are cut, sift powdered sugar and coconut shavings on top! For a different twist, you can bake them with the coconut on top.

Don't forget to tune in tomorrow to see the before and afters!
