For the dough
1.APF/Maida 4 cups
2.Butter(unsalted,cold) 250 g
3.Yogurt (thick) 1/2 cup +1 or 2 tbsp
4.Salt 1/4 tsp
5.Pineapple essence 1/4tsp
For the filling
6.Pineapple(peeled,cored & chopped) 11/2 cup
7.Sugar 4 tbsp
8.Water 2 tbsp
For the filling(spread)
-In a non stick pan add the pineapple pieces,sugar and water.Cook till the water reduces and the sugar dissolves completely.Keep this aside.
-Cut the butter into small pieces.
-In a bowl add the flour and salt.Mix well.
-Now add the butter pieces and using your fingers combine the flour and butter(do it in a gentle way)forming into crumbs(see image below)
-Now add the yogurt little by little along with the essence and knead the flour.
-Divide the dough into two equal parts.
-Grease a rectangular or a square baking tray with butter.
-Take one part of the dough,roll it into the size of the tray and place it on the greased tray(level it properly).
-Prick it here and there using a fork.
-Now spread the pineapple filling over and level it.
-Roll the other part(just like the first one) and place it over the filling.Prick the top part (as done for the previous one).
-Preheat the oven at and bake* for 1/2 an hour(adjust according to your oven settings)
-Cut into square shapes and serve.
*For the filling part you can use Pineapple jam instead of cooking Pineapple with sugar etc...
*Use yogurt little by little while kneading,sometimes you won't be needing the extra 1 or 2 tbsp as mentioned in the ingredients.
*If using salted butter,then avoid using salt from the ingredients.
