These ROCK!! The only changes I made to the ingredients were to add 1 TBL. lemon juice to the filling, and 1 TBL. vanilla to the crust/topping. I have NO idea how this is supposed to fit in to a 13 by 9; I sure didn't have enough stuff, so I stuck it in an 8 by 8 pan and they came out SO yummy! I will ABSOLUTELY make these again.

Pretty good. I'd recommend using pineapple juice or some kind of citrus juice instead of 1 cup of water. I also added cinnamon and used margarine instead of shortening.

I read the reviews before i made this dessert. I used fresh pineapple(about 2 Cups). i used my chopper to chop my pineapple, and used all the juice from that (4-6 oz). I also added lemon extract to filling and vanilla extract to crumb. I say crumb, but it came out more like a cookie topping (maybe because i used more oats and also used marg instead of shortening) Oh, i omitted the salt and water all together. They came out amazing! My daughter and grndkids LOVED them!
