PINEAPPLE CRUMBLE BARS

1 full cup lard or shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking soda
Filling:
1 can crushed pineapple
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the lard, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla with a spoon. Then add 2 cups of flour and 1 1/2 cups quick cook oats and 1 teaspoon soda. Mix with fingers.

To make the filling: Heat crushed pineapple, starch, and sugar in a saucepan until thick and clear, about 5 minutes. Press half of the dough mixture onto a cookie sheet that has sides, using your fingers. Spread the hot pineapple mixture over the top of the dough. Crumble the rest of the dough mixture over the top of the pineapple and bake until light brown, 20 minutes.

Serves 24
