To make the grilled pineapple:

  • Open a can of pineapple and pour out the juice from the can. Place the pineapple on a plate and squeeze half a lime on the pineapple. The lime brings out the sweetness of the pineapple.
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • Heat pan or grill on medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add 1 slice of butter. If you’re using a grill, melt butter and brush it on the pineapple. Sprinkle some brown sugar on top of the pineapple. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side until grill marks are present on both sides. Set grilled pineapple aside. You can chop in bite sized pieces or leave them whole.

To make the cheesecake cream:

  • Add 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream to a bowl and whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Tip: Chill the heavy cream and bowl in the fridge for a few hours or overnight prior to this step for easy whipped cream! Set aside cream in the refrigerator until assembling.
    1½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Make sure your cream cheese has been sitting at room temperature so it's soft to whisk. Add cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar to a bowl. Then, squeeze half a lime in the bowl. Whisk together until everything is well incorporated.

  • Slowly mix the cream cheese in the heavy whipping cream by gently folding it in. Once everything is mixed well, set aside.
  • To assemble (in a cup or cake pan), add crust on the bottom. Next, add the cheesecake cream. Then, add grilled pineapple. Repeat the layering process starting with crust, cheesecake cream, and grilled pineapple. Garnish with more graham crackers at the top.
  • Refrigerate overnight and eat the next day so the cheesecake cream can thicken. Hope you enjoy!
