Light and refreshing pineapple tart with a shortbread crust. This was my childhood favorite (almost 60 years ago)! Everyone loves this dessert! Serve with whipped cream if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple in juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 egg whites

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 2 Combine flour, butter, and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat together until a soft dough forms. Press dough over the bottom and up the sides of a 9x12-inch baking pan.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until edges are light golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. 4 While crust is baking, bring sugar and crushed pineapple to a boil in a small saucepan. Mix cornstarch with water and stir into the pineapple filling. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  5. 5 While filling is cooling, beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until stiff peaks form. Add slightly cooled pineapple mixture; whip on low speed until just combined. Give filling 1 more stir to ensure it is evenly mixed.
  6. 6 Pour filling into the baked crust. Return to the oven and bake until the topping is slightly golden brown, about 10 minutes. Cool before cutting into squares.
