Pina Colada Bars

Pina Colada Bars
  • Crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained and juice reserved
  • 3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine flour, butter, and white sugar in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed, scraping bowl often, until crust mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan.
  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven until crust is set but still pale, 12 to 17 minutes.
  4. Combine brown sugar, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon rum extract, and salt in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well-blended. Stir in pineapple, coconut, and macadamia nuts. Spread filling over hot crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set and top is lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely, about 25 minutes.
  6. Whisk 5 teaspoons reserved pineapple juice, confectioners' sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon rum extract together in a small bowl to make glaze.
  7. Drizzle glaze over cooled filling; cut into bars.
