I made these for my husband’s Birthday. They were delicious and easy to prepare. I bake them as we were getting ready to sit down to dinner. They were done as we finished and I served them warm with whipped cream. Wonderful!!!

Hi, looks yummy! I want to make them but first, you call for 2 tbsp butter but I only see 1.5 in the recipe directions. Could you clarify please? Thanks!

I'd like to use fresh pineapple. Is there any special prep for using fresh pineapple in this recipe? I know there are issues with fresh pineapple and other ingredients but I prefer using fresh rather than canned.

Hi Dianna, I think fresh pineapple would work just fine. I haven't tried it that way myself yet. Please let me know how it works out for you :)
