Maui Madness


  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 slices fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pint coffee ice cream


  1. Lightly toast the nuts in a small dry skillet over medium heat, stirring, until they are golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Immediately remove from skillet to prevent burning.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium skillet and cook the pineapple over medium heat, turning once, until tinged with gold, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Stir in the molasses and simmer, spooning the sauce over the fruit, for 3 minutes.
  5. Transfer the pineapple to 4 shallow dessert bowls.
  6. Add the rum and lemon juice to the skillet and simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  7. Place a scoop of the ice cream on each pineapple slice.
  8. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream.
  9. Sprinkle with the nuts and serve immediately.

Yields 4 servings.
