I am originally from western Pennsylvania and am looking for a recipe called Pineapple Squares.?

The recipe I used had a sweet dough made with egg yolks. The whites were reserved to bush on the top layer of dough before baking. The dough ws divided into two balls and rolled out. One layer was placed in a jelly roll pan. The filling was a can of crushed pineapple and tapioca. The filling was not cooked prior to being layered between the dough.
