This won a $25,000 prize in the National Pineapple Cooking Contest a number of years ago.

Recipe Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving syrup. Combine the cheeses, 1/2 cup sugar, egg yolks, lemon rind and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat with mixer until smooth. Stir in drained pineapple.
  3. Butter a 12 x 9-inch baking pan and place one sheet filo in it. Butter the filo. Repeat with three more sheets filo, buttering each. Spoon pineapple-cheese mix over and spread until level. Cover with remaining four sheets of filo, buttering each. Mark pastry into diamonds and bake for 50 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Combine 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice with remaining sugar and lemon juice and cook to a thick syrup. When baklava is baked, spoon hot syrup evenly over the top. Cool.
