How to make it

  • Make sauce: Mix together egg, brown sugar, butter, cream and cook in a double boiler until thickened (about 20 to 30 minutes).
  • Make sure you don't bring it to a boil.
  • It thickens more as it cools. When almost cool, stir in rum.
  • Make tart: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Roll out puff pastry dough, cut out 5 6-inch rounds and transfer to baking sheets.
  • Using a fork, prick dough all over.
  • In a small bowl whisk confectioners' sugar and egg yolk to blend and brush over dough rounds. Bake 15 minutes until golden brown. Cool.
  • Preheat broiler. Heat a heavy, large non-stick skillet over high heat, melt butter, add pineapple and cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
  • After the pineapple is cool enough to touch, break a ring at on side and arrange 3 each on the pastry round, think of the Olympic rings intertwined like triangle over the dough..
  • Sprinkle each tart with 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • Watching carefully, broil until edges of pineapple begin to brown, for about 5 minutes.
  • To serve, transfer tarts to large plates, top with a large scoop of the coconut sorbet or coconut ice cream.
  • Spoon sauce around.
  • And Heavens, if that isn't enough, toast some coconut and top with the toasted coconut. Ooooh! Better yet, chop some salted macadamia nuts and sprinkle that over the whole thing and call it a day.

    Wow, this sounds absolutely decadent! I am looking for an easy recipe to use up the pineapple in my fruit basket, but this may convince me to put in a little more time...
