I love serving bars for dessert especially when I need to feed a crowd.  You can serve tons of people, provide variety with only three trays.  Like my ALMOND JOY BARS, PAY DAY KRISPY BARS and my APPLE PECAN CREAM CHEESE BARS

    • Hi Michele,
      All you need to do is spread the preserves over the crust in place of the Pineapple Pie Filling. You could add pineapple chunks if you want more of a texture. NOTE: make sure you drain the pineapple. 🙂
