  • Heat oven to 350 (180C) and line a 11” x 7” baking pan or similar with parchment paper. Allow some paper to hang over the long sides.
  • Place the flour, butter and icing sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Spoon the mixture into the baking pan, spread out evenly and press down with the back of the spoon.

  • Pour the mixture over the base and sprinkle the dried pineapple evenly over the top. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup of coconut flakes or desiccated coconut over the top and continue to bake for another 10 minutes or until golden brown and just set.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely before cutting into squares.
