(4/17/19) Here’s what you need to make Olivia’s Baked Pineapple.
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 stick butter (not margarine)
1 & 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 & 1/2 sleeve of crushed ritz crackers
2 (20 oz) cans of pineapple chunks or tidbits – drained (reserve juice from 1 can)
Mix sugar, cornstarch, 1/2 stick of butter and juice from 1 can of pineapple. Heat over medium heat until it begins to thicken.
Spray a 9X9 casserole dish with non-stick spray. Pour drained pineapple in dish, sprinkle cheese on top and pour sugar/cornstarch mixture over cheese. Spread crushed crackers over this and drizzle the other half of melted butter over crackers. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Really jus enough to melt the cheese.
Serve warm with ham.
