This is a recipe that I have had for a long time. My hubby really loves it. It is really nice and refreshing!

Pineapple Cheesecake Squares
Pat-in-the-Pan Crust (recipe below)
2 pkgs (8-oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 can (20-oz.) crushed pineapple, well drained (reserve 1 cup of the juice)
1/2 cup whipping cream

Heat oven to 350.
Bake crust (recipe below).
Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until smooth and fluffy; beat in 1/2 cup sugar and the eggs. Stir in 2/3 cup pineapple juice. Pour cream cheese mixture over hot crust. Bake just until center is set, about 20 minutes (the crust will be baked again at this point). Cool completely.
Mix flour and 1/4 cup sugar in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in 1 cup reserved pineapple juice. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; fold in pineapple. Cool completely. Beat whipping gream in chilled bowl until stiff. Fold into pineapple mixture. Spread carefully over dessert. Cover loosely and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours. Cut into about 3-inch squares.
Yield: 12 squares.
