    My mother used to make this but her recipe calls it Pineapple Squares (a little "messy" for squares but explains the sweeter filling). I still make it myself now and then and so does my daughter.

    This is an amazing dessert. It is sweet, but that did not bother me. I served it with vanilla ice cream, everyone really liked it. Thank you for a great recipe!!

    This didn't turn out very well for me. It might have been the old oven I was using at the time I prepared this, but the crust was a bit hard and chewy, and I thought it could have used more filling.

    This is very good but pretty sweet... I think I will cut back on the sugar in the pineapple mix next time to see what happens. It may also be good to add chopped nuts to the crust/topping.
