LINK TO PIE CRUST I USED IN THE COMMENTS OF THIS RECIPE - JUST HALVE THE RECIPE
With a sharp knife, cut the tough skin off of the pineapple, cut in half and cut out the hard core in the center; cut the remaining pineapple into about 1 inch pieces. Place cut pineapple chunks in a large bowl.
Pour over pineapple and add almond extract...toss the pineapple till evenly coated with flour mixture.
(You May want to taste to see if its sweet enough for your liking...my pineapple was pretty ripe, so I used 2 1/2 tbsp of each sugar.)
Stir in coconut.
Place pineapple mixture on crust leaving a good 3 inches of crust to fold up over the pineapple.
Fold all edges of the crust over the fruit leaving the center uncovered.
Sprinkle the uncovered fruit with brown sugar.
Brush crust with egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar or regular sugar.
Place in the oven and bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until bubble and golden.
