Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

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.
2
In a small bowl combine flour, sugars, and spice. mix well.

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.
3
Roll out your dough and place on a baking sheet.

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.
4
Leave the tart cool, then remove from pan to serving platter.

Slice and enjoy with a yummy scoop of ice cream.
