In a medium bowl mix together flour, powdered sugar, and chopped almonds.

Cut softened butter into cubes and add it to the mixture. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry mixer or a knife. 

Use a 13×9 baking dish or a springform pan.

Spray the bottom of the pan with cooking spray

Once the mixture is well blended and crumbly, firmly press it into the bottom of the pan, all the way to the edge. Bake for 20-25 min on a baking sheet until set and lightly browned.

While the crust is baking mix cream cheese with an electric mixer or hand mixer until smooth and fluffy in a large bowl on low speed. Next beat in ½ cup sugar and eggs, mix until well blended. Beat in 2/3 cup pineapple juice. 

Remove the crust from the oven and pour mixture over the crust while it is still hot. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly across the crust. Bake pineapple cheesecake for a second time, about 20 minutes just until the center is set. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

While the cream cheese layer is cooling it is time to make the pineapple topping. In a 2qt saucepan mix together ¼ cup flour and ¼ cup sugar. Stir in 1 cup pineapple juice. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until boiling. Boil and stir for about 1 minute. As the topping boils, it will thicken.

Remove the mixture from the heat and fold in the crushed pineapple. Set aside to cool completely to room temperature.

Once the cream cheese layer and pineapple topping are cooled it is time to make whipped cream. 

Place a glass or metal bowl in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to cool thoroughly. Beat the whipping cream in the chilled bowl until stiff peaks form. 

Fold the whipped cream into the pineapple topping and spread it carefully on top of the cheesecake.

Allow the cheesecake to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (or overnight) before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
