    In small bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add 1/4 cup sugar, the coconut extract and egg; beat until well blended. Pour into partially baked shell. Carefully spoon pineapple over cream cheese mixture. (Pineapple will not completely cover cream cheese.)

    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix reserved 1/4 cup pineapple liquid and the cornstarch until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until glaze boils and thickens.
