This was and still is one of my dad's favorites, as well as my two daughters who enjoyed these regularly when they were growing up. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Thanks Maryann. One thing the 800 lb gorilla likes is pineapple desserts.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

I hope he likes them, Billy! That was one of my mom's recipes. They are a bit sweet, but still pretty good for breakfast, if you can tolerate all the sugar.

Pineapple Bars




Now I know where to go to pick up single pineapples.

As much as I love pineapple, I've had a lot of pineapple desserts that really left a lot to be desired. In most cases, I wound up wishing I just had the original, fresh pineapple, and nothing else. These bars DO sound interesting, though, and I do plan to try them, but I want to do the crisp first. Still a few days before I'm less busy, and can give it a shot.

One more note: when I DO make this, I shan't use nuts, but SHALL use the local pineaapple/jalapeño preserves. Otherwise, there's only one other brand of pineapple preserves here, and the jalapeño one is MUCH better.

Oh, but you have to use some kind of nuts, Rob! We happen to like walnuts, so that's what we use, but you can probably sub just about anything. Surely, there must be some nut that you like?

There are two kinds of nuts that I like: Cashews and Macadamias (yes, I know - "champagne taste on a beer budget"), but (with the exception of White-Chocolate-Macadamia-Cookies) prefer them just by themselves, rather than in things. If someone had already made the bars with nuts, I would try them, but I wouldn't go out of my way to put the nuts into something when I make them for myself.
