Does this not look like the fanciest desert ever?
Yeah, it’s also the easiest! It’s my little riff on Ina Garten’s Apple Tart. I make the apple version all the time for dinner parties, because it’s delicious, easy to make and looks like you went thru ton of effort. A total fake out.
I’ve decided to quit winter, like I’m so done. I’m full on grilling burgers while sporting flip flops…ok so I’m grilling in my snowsuit, but I’m still grilling! Pineapple tart screams tropical summer time weather to me, so I thought I’d give this recipe a twist with pineapple.
And oh my yum! Sooooo good! All you have to do is roll out a piece of puff pastry. Slice up your pineapple and layer the pieces all fancy. Sprinkle with sugar, dot with butter and pop it in the oven! I drizzled a little extra caramel sauce over the top when it came out, which is optional, but so good!
You would also not be wrong in the slightest to top this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…,
