Rub in the butter and add the oats. Mix well. If the pineapple is not very finely crushed, process it in the food processor. Drain well. Add the pineapple and sultanas to the flour mixture and mix. Add about 75 ml of the pineapple juice and mix to form a stiff dough. Press into the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or till done and golden brown on top.
