A touch of Hawaii, a delicious dessert and very easy to make. We first experienced a similar dish in Waikiki in 1972 and later I developed this recipe and it has been a big favorite.

Another first for me using one of your recipes. Pineapple in a crisp. I've had rhubarb...and of course your strawberry crisp and so knew this wouldn't disappoint. What a unique flavor the pineapple brings to this recipe Bill. I cut the amounts in 1/2 and used an 8x8 inch baking pyrex baking pan. This is as good the next day when all you have to do is heat up a serving in the microwave for 10-15 seconds and add your scoop of vanilla icecream. Thanks!!!!

This was a really a great recipe. I used it for a large crowd, made to pans of it and it was all gone!! Did add more rhubarb and used chunky pineapple cut in half instead of the crushed. Also, I sprayed the pan with Pam and it was very easy to remove. Had requests for the recipe!

I love rhubarb and the pinapple just took it over the flavor of the rhubard too much for me. I would recommend this dish to someone who isn't sure yet about enjoying rhubarb's unique flavor.
