How To Make Pineapple Cake Bars

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar for the crust mixture.
  3. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture becomes crumbly. Set aside 1 cup of this mixture for later use.
  4. Press the remaining crust mixture into the bottom of a well-greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
  5. Bake the crust for 15 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. In another bowl, blend together the filling ingredients until well combined. Spread the filling over the pre-baked crust in the baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle the reserved crust mixture over the filling, creating a crumbled topping.
  8. Bake the bars for 1 hour, or until the top is golden and the filling is set.
  9. Allow the bars to cool for 15-20 minutes.
  10. In a separate bowl, beat together the icing ingredients until smooth and well combined.
  11. Drizzle the coconut-infused icing over the bars, adding more half and half if needed to achieve the desired consistency.
  12. Slice the bars into individual servings and serve.
