I made these again using a dark T-fal type non-stick cake pan lined with tin foil.In my earlier review,I had mentioned that the base of this bar tasted uncooked.Well this time they turned out just great!!Nice and Brown!!Whether the pan made the difference or not,I'm not sure,However,I'm uping my previous rating on these nummmy tasting bars!!

All I can say is...these are amazing ! <br/>Be sure to put the pineapple directly on the crust as the recipe says. It sounds weird, but that makes the difference. I mixed it in with the topping by mistake and they were still good but not even close to the correct way.<br/>I have new favourite recipe ! Thanks

These were really good! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars was because the bottom didnt hold together well for me.....crumbly. The taste was excellent and it was easy to prepare. Even better with ice cream.
