  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. Core and peel pineapple. Slice it lengthwise into eighths.

  2. Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Coat pineapple wedges with sugar; place in hot pan. Cook, turning once and shaking pan often, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pineapple.

  3. Stir 3 tablespoons water into pan, and heat briefly; drizzle over pineapple. Serve with frozen yogurt, if desired.

Cook's Notes

The easiest way to core a pineapple is to quarter it and then slice off the tip of each wedge.
