I melted a little vanilla ice cream and added rum to it for a sauce - really good. maybe a little rum in the dish itself.....

These are all sure good ideas.

FYI... I did cut the pineapple into smaller chunks and it was perfect. I also agree with Sharon's comments, as I am not sure exactly why we brought out bowls for this. Once our bowls were empty we began eating right out of the pan. The recipe should be modified to warn others of this phenomenon.

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.

Hubby hates dried coconut, only fresh and cracked and only once a year, maybe.

I have found a way to stake my part of the dessert!! YAY!!!

I wonder if I could use canned pineapple since none of the stores had any fresh. Anyone have ideas? Or should I just wait?

Re: Pineapple Crisp - chef_Tab - 03-11-2009

Billy, I would imagine you could use canned pineapple. But you may want to wait until someone who knows what they are doing comes along! I have used canned peaches in a pinch for cobbler. It isn't as wonderful, but still good.

Pineapple survives canning better than just about any other fruit, so I wouldn't hesitate one bit. Just remember to drain it well, so it won't add too much liquid to the recipe.

Funny you mentioned that Billy, because I was thinking of trying it next time, maybe using two cans of pineapple. It would certainly save time and it might be almost as good.

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...

Jean, I found an interesting recipe in mastercook that uses a small amount of dried apricots, and a cup of fresh mango along with the pineapples. The topping sounds good too. It's a toasted coconut crisp. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Mare749 I read a post of yours where you mentioned pineapple bars - would you mind sharing the recipe?

Re: Pineapple Crisp - Mare749 - 03-15-2009

Oh, it would be my pleasure! I'll start a new thread.
