Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • 125g amaretti biscuits (20 medium)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons unsalted butter, cut up
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cans (450g each) juice-packed pineapple chunks, drained

Directions
Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Combine the amaretti biscuits, walnuts, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and vanilla essence, and pulse until the biscuits are finely ground.
  2. Toss the pineapple with the crumb mixture in a 20 cm square glass baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until the pineapple is piping hot and the crumbs are crusty.

Did you know?

*When buying canned pineapple, opt for the juice-packed type; pineapple packed in heavy syrup has lots of added sugar and about 150 kilojoules more per serving.
*Fresh pineapple can be used as a meat tenderiser as it contains an enzyme, bromelain, that breaks down protein. Bromelain is used to make commercial meat tenderisers.

Kind of like pineapple crumble but the amaretti biscuits add a different flavour and texture. Good pineapple season food! - 24 Jan 2009
