  • Mix well and open with a roll Cut in 2 parts (rectangles, size of your "Pyrex form")
  • Filling:

  • Crush pineapple in mixer add the others Fill components, put in a pan and take to the fire mixing with a spoon 'til dry, wait a little 'til get cold.
  • Put one base rectangle in a Pyrex, drop the fill and cover with the other rectangle. Bake it in oven.
  • Cut into little cubes and pass by sugar and cinnamon
    • I like it cold, so I put in refrigerator before pass by sugar and cinnamon

    ** i always a good idea pass the eggs through a strainer, that yolk´s peel does not smell good
