PINEAPPLE ORANGE SQUARES

This is an old recipe from Kraft Foods.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup coconut
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tbsp brown sugar
1-quart vanilla ice cream
8-oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 can (8 1/4-oz) crushed pineapple, drained
Pineapple slices, optional

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, coconut, butter and brown sugar. Spread the mixture evenly in an 8 x 8-inch square baking pan or dish. Press onto the bottom of the pan to form a firm, even crust. Bake at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden. Cool.

While crust bakes, stir ice cream to soften. Beat cream cheese and orange juice concentrate until fluffy. Add ice cream by spoonfuls, beating until smooth after each addition. Stir in the crushed pineapple. Spoon mixture into the prepared crust. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with pineapple slices, if desired.

Yields 9 squares

This sounds very tasty. I have lots of old Kraft recipe inserts from TV Guide and they have lots of good recipes in them. I have enjoyed reading your posts since I found your blog a couple of weeks ago.
