Pineapple Fingers

I have quite a few community fundraiser books. I don't look at them too often because they all seem to feature similar common recipes. Today I pick up Cooking in Paradise a fundraiser for The First Evangelical Free Church Of Hawaii Women's Missionary Society from 1979. I have four or five books from Hawaii and they really don't feature recipes that we would think of having an Hawaiian touch. This book came closer than usual with this recipe for Pineapple Fingers:

Pineapple Fingers
Step 1
1 yellow cake mix
2 egg yolks,reserve whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons melted butter
Combine and press into greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

Step 2
Beat 2 egg whites until stiff

Step 3
Add 2/3 cup sugar to egg whites. Fold in 1/2 cup coconut, and small can crushed pineapple (drained).

Step 4
Spread over cake mixture and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool before cutting.

There are a lot of duplications, aren't there? But it seems there are always a few unusual ones in each book that warrant keeping it. This recipe sounds like it would be pretty tasty. Maybe I'll make the effort to bake it one day! I'll let you know if I do and how it turned out.

I think "fingers" is such an interesting name for cookies. I inherited a stack of recipe cards from my great-great grandmother, and one of the ones I've tried was a "fingers" recipe. The name of it was a tad creepy, I thought, but they tasted good. I guess it's just a type of cookie you don't hear much about anymore. These sound like they're tasty, and how fun, to have cookbooks from Hawaii. Thanks for sharing.

My mother has been making theses all my life and handed down the recipe to me. This is the first time I have seen it anywhere else. These are one of the best "bars" you will ever make
