Walker Family Pineapple Oatmeal Bars
“Is it good enough to share?”… you BET it is! Here is a real treasure from one of my oldest friends. When asked why her dishes are always so delicious she will inevitably respond “because it’s made with love and butter”. And so it is.
1⁄2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp corn starch
20 oz can crushed pineapple 2 tsp lemon juice
2 cups flour
1⁄2 tsp salt
2 cups brown sugar 5 cups oatmeal
2 cups butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook first 4 ingredients over medium heat until thickened; let cool.
Combine the next 4 ingredients together in a large bowl; using a pastry blender incorporate butter until crumbly.
Pat half the oatmeal mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. Spread pineapple filling and top with remaining oatmeal mixture. Bake for 45 minutes. Cut when completely cool.
