A New York one would be great, but any will be great thank you..

I am in Melbourne working and seeing family.I need to make one for Emilys Christening on Saturday. I could web search, but prefer to use my "know where I can get good information" place.

Sending good thoughts to any sick dogs or their people.

Edited to add. Sorry I haven't replied to sad posts. I really miss Erns and reading them makes me want to go home.

Pineapple Cheesecake Squares
Heat oven to 350 deg

Pat in Pan Crust:

2 c flour
2/3 c oleo or butter softened
½ c nuts , finely chopped
½ c powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients in bowl with fork until crumbly. Press firmly and evenly in bottom of ungreased rectangular pan. 13x9x2” Bake until set – 15 to 20 min.


2 (8oz. ) pkg. softened cream cheese
½ c sugar
2 eggs
2/3 c unsweetened pineapple juice (which had been drained from the can of
crushed pineapple)
¼ c flour
¼ c sugar
1 (20oz) can of crushed pineapple well drained (save juice)
½ c whipping cream

Beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Beat in ½ c sugar and the eggs.
Stir in 2/3 c pineapple juice. Bake about 20 min until the center is set. Cool completely.


Mix flour and ¼ c sugar in a 2 qt saucepan. Stir in 1 cup of saved pineapple juice. Heat to boiling over medium heat. Boil and stir 1 min. Remove from heat, fold in drained pineapple and cool completely.

Beat whipping cream in chilled bowl until stiff. (You can use a tub of Cool Whip instead) Fold into cooled pineapple mixture. Spread carefully over dessert. Cover and refrigerate about 4 hrs until firm. Cut into 3” squares.

(If you can’t squeeze the total of 1 and 2/3 cup of juice out of the crushed pineapple it’s OK to add a little, <1/4c water to the total juice to make 1 and 2/3 cup)
