How to Make Crushed Pineapple Slice

A full and detailed recipe card is at the bottom of this post.

Crush Biscuits: In a high-speed food processor, crush biscuits to a crumb. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Stir through the desiccated coconut.

Mix Wet Ingredients: Add the condensed milk, melted butter, and crushed pineapple to the biscuit mixture. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to mix until well combined and it sticks together.

Press into Pan: Firmly press the mixture into the lined pan. Use the back of a spatula, a wooden spoon, or your hands to ensure the base is compact. Place the pan in the refrigerator to chill while preparing the frosting.

Make Pineapple Frosting: Sift icing sugar into a medium-sized mixing bowl to ensure no lumps. Pour in melted butter and crushed pineapple. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and thick.

Spread Icing: Evenly spread the icing over the chilled base. If desired, place some pineapple pieces/tidbits on top of the frosting.

Set in Refrigerator: Return the pan to the refrigerator for 2-3 hours, or until the slice is firm and the frosting has set. Once set, remove the slice from the pan. Cut into squares or desired shapes and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • Firm Pressing: When pressing the mixture into the pan, use a rubber spatula or your hands to ensure it’s compacted well. This prevents the slice from crumbling when cut.
  • Chill Well: Allowing enough hours for the pineapple slice to chill before slicing ensures compact squares.
  • Slicing: For clean cuts, run your knife under hot water and wipe it dry between slices. This technique helps cut through the icing smoothly.

What is the Difference Between Crushed Pineapple and Pineapple Tidbits?

Crushed pineapple is finely chopped pineapple, often used as a mix-in for baked goods, providing moisture and flavor. Pineapple tidbits are small, chunky pieces of pineapple, great for topping or adding texture to dishes.

Is There a Gluten-Free Option for the Biscuits in the Base?

Absolutely, you can use gluten-free Mariw biscuits, arrowroot biscuits, or digestive biscuits. Or choose any of your preferred gluten-free plain cookies that crumbles well to make the base.
