Pineapple Squares

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.
Dough making
-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.
Further process & Baking 
-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 300ºF and bake* for 1/2 an hour(adjust according to your oven settings)
-Cut into square shapes and serve.
*While baking when you feel the bottom part is baked completely and crunchy but the top part is not yet baked properly then turn your oven's settings mode to only 'top part baking' and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or till done.
*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.
