  1. This looks absolutely wonderful for my Mom’s 90th Birthday…wondering how many this will serve??? Anyone have any idea???

    1. At first I cut them into 15 pieces, but then I took some to work for my coworkers, so I cut those pieces in half. So to answer your question I would say 15 really big pieces or 30 regular pieces. :)

      1. You can make your own dried pineapple by putting slices of canned or fresh pineapple in the oven at 160 degrees until it’s dried out enough. I’m not so sure “wet” pineapple would work well in this recipe; it might eventually make the squares not so crispie.
