I can't believe that I forgot to rate these. I think these bars are just heavenly. I took these to work about 1 year ago, and coworkers are still requesting that I bring them again. Delish!!!

I agree w/ChipotleChick the times were way off. I had to cook bottom for 5 mins more and the whole thing for 10 mins. more. Pineapple was bland. Did not enjoy these that much Sorry!

These had a lot of potential. Would have been really good if both cooking times had been sufficient. They turned out really soft and doughy. I think 4 minutes more baking the crust and an additional 5 minutes baking the whole pan would have proved much better results. The flavor of the pineapple was great though. These kind of reminded me of lemon squares.
