"Worst dessert I've made. Dough was heavy and not enough liquid from pineapple and sauce to moisten. Would not recommend."

"Perfect size and moistness. I switched out the sugar for splenda and used fake butter and wheat flour. Think next time I will try adding dab of cocoa powder in the mix. Glad it was so small because i would have eaten more for sure."
