  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off the pineapple. Cut into quarters and remove the core from each piece. Lay each section skin side down and, using a sharp knife, separate the fruit along the skin, allowing the fruit to rest on the skin for presentation. Cut the fruit into slices for easy eating. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle each section with 2 tablespoons each of brown sugar and coconut.
  3. Broil until the coconut is toasted, about 5 minutes.

Delicious -- I found that less than half the sugar and the coconut was a good amount for us.

I'm making it tonight for myself, but I recently had it at a New Years Eve party and it was incredible! My friend told me the exact way as the author (with the corrected 12") to make it.

Quick and easy!

The coconut burned before the sugar and pineapple were even warm. We picked off the burnt coconut and put it back in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. My daughter loved it; my husband an...

For a quick and easy dessert, this was surprisingly good. :)
