Sorry, This was just okay for me, I found it a bit bland, not enough pineapple flavor for me . Thanks

These were really enjoyed. I did the crust in a food processor like Kittencal, very very tasty bars. We enjoyed in the football games today. The four of went through these in no time. Made for Gimme 5.

Everyone who eats these raves about them. Instead of adding more crumb mixture to the top, I glaze mine with a sticky pinapple juice & sugar reduction. Yum!
