"EVERYONE seems to love this dessert, perhaps because it's not too sweet. A cousin gave me the recipe long time ago, much to the delight of my children, who always enjoyed it. It's light and delicious."


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press into an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 325° for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. For filling, drain pineapple, reserving the juice; set pineapple and juice aside. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour. Add egg; beat on low just until combined. Add pineapple juice. Gradually add milk and vanilla. Sprinkle pineapple over crust. Slowly pour filling over pineapple. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator.
