This delectable Hawaiian Pineapple Coconut Crescent Braid dessert braid may look fussy but, it’s not. Filled with a decadent cream cheese filling laced with sweet shredded coconut and crushed pineapple, it’s a delicacy that was inspired by my recent trip to the White Lily test kitchen. Our time spent in the test kitchen was interactive, which thrilled me to bits.  Along with our partner we got to bake a recipe from the website using White Lily, Martha White and Smucker’s products.  I was in heaven.
The recipe assigned to myself and Christin from Spicy Southern Kitchenwas a Coconut Almond Biscuit Braid.  Needless to say, it was a lot of fun working together and giggling with the other bloggers in the test kitchen.  Stacey, from Southern Bite even showed us some of his best dance moves. At that point giggling turned to very loud laughter.  He was such a good sport hanging with all of the ladies.  While working on the coconut braid my creative juices started flowing and I wondered how the same concept might be adapted to make another type of dessert braid and this Hawaiian version was the result.
This version combines 2 of my favorite flavors, pineapple and coconut.  I opted to use a crescent roll crust to simplify.  It is SO good. I would be perfectly happy to serve this for brunch or as a sweet pastry with coffee or hot tea.  It’s even tasty enough to be served at room temperature as a special pineapple coconut dessert. I sometimes think when people see “braid” in the recipetitle it immediately causes a mental block so I wanted to show you the step-by-step pictures to make recreating it a cinch.  You’ll be a braid making expert in no time.
