OK, pineapple is on my list to buy.

Re: Pineapple Crisp - cjs - 03-09-2009

I'd like to offer up a suggestion to all of us who like this dessert - how about playing with it and making it our own??? Oatmeal has been suggested as a change for the topping maybe pine nuts, how about some additions for the filling?

go with pineapple -
a little mint, basil.... rosemary
cayenne, cinnamon, anise
raspberries, walnuts

oh, there are all kinds of things to play with in it - hmmmmm...

I was thinking about a hint of cinnamon in the topping.

Maybe add some mango or papaya?

As for adding nuts, I would go for sliced almonds, maybe toffee flavored.


Re: Pineapple Crisp - Mare749 - 03-09-2009

I agree with Barbara, it seems to call for almonds. Will make notes for next time.

I just have to say that I swear this stuff gets better every day! If you can make it last. Today is day 3 and I just nabbed a spoonful. Hoping I can leave it alone until after dinner tonight. No way there will be a day 4 though.

Re: Pineapple Crisp - BarbaraS - 03-09-2009

OMG!!! What was I not thinking?! Fresh/toasted coconut on top! Either added after baking or during the last 15 minutes to toast.


Re: Pineapple Crisp - labradors - 03-09-2009

No coconut for me.

Compadre, cómprame un coco.
No, Compadre. No compro coco, porque poco coco como, por eso poco coco compro.

Spanish tongue twister. Translated:

My friend, buy me a coconut.
No, friend. I do not buy coconuts, because I eat very few coconuts, therefore, I buy very few coconuts.

Hubby says it should just be served warmed with cold vanilla ice cream.


We have just a little left, should be interesting...

[edit to add]

Instead of instant tapioca, how about pureed pear?[/add]

Re: Pineapple Crisp - Mare749 - 03-09-2009

Barbara, that's how we had it, warm with vanilla ice cream. Pure heaven! But, now that you mentioned coconut, I think that's going to be the first idea I try. Toasting for the last 15 minutes sounds like a great way to go.
