How to Make Easy Pineapple “Shortcake”


  • 1Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

    Butter a tart pan or pie plate.

    Combine the pineapple, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and vanilla in a bowl and mix. Set aside while preparing the dough.

    Combine the milk with the vinegar and let sit while mixing the other ingredients for the dough.

    In a medium size bowl, combine the sugar, flour, butter, salt and brown sugar. Slowly, add the sour milk, stirring the mixture while adding the milk. Work the mixture into a dough; which will be sticky.

    Place the pineapple mixture at the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the dough on top of the pineapples. It will not fit perfectly and will be placed more in chunks.

    Place the ingredients for the crumb in a small bowl. Work the butter in the mixture with your fingers until small crumbs form.

    Cover the top of the tart with the crumb.

    Bake 30-35 minutes.

    Serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream.
