Grilled Pineapple with Vanilla Mascarpone

Grilled pineapple with vanilla mascarpone is the perfect summer dessert. Pineapple gets caramelized on the grill, then cool mascarpone melts and pools around it. Topped with fresh blueberries and rum glaze, there’s nothing quite like it.

Ripe pineapple, with its plentiful natural sugars, is ideal for grilling. This makes a great dessert after spicy Latin, Indian, or Caribbean food. Make sure to let the slices brown; you want lots of those caramelized, almost burnt edges.

Mascarpone is a smooth Italian dairy product with a texture somewhere between whipped cream and cream cheese. It’s used in tiramisu and available in many supermarkets and gourmet stores, but if you can’t find it, good-quality vanilla ice cream will taste just fine.–Bobby Flay

*What can I substitute for mascarpone?

An exceptionally smooth Italian cream cheese, mascarpone is often used in cheesecake and tiramisu because of its sweet, milky flavor, and soft texture. You can sub straight cream cheese for it in some uses but in something like this, you might want to up your game with one of the following.
First, you can make it yourself. Or you can add blend 8 ounces of softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup of whipping cream or 1/4 cup of sour cream. Whip it up until it’s smooth and creamy and you’re good to go.
