Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups sweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • Best Basic Crepes Recipe (make 16 coconut crepes)
Pineapple Rum Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups diced, cored, peeled pineapples
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice or orange juice
  • 1/4 cup amber rum or pineapple juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Method

On baking sheet, toast coconut in 300°F (150°C) toaster oven or oven, stirring once, until light golden, 5 minutes.

Pineapple Rum Topping: Meanwhile, in large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook diced pineapple, brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon, stirring often, until edges of pineapple are browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in pineapple juice.

In small bowl, mix rum with cornstarch; pour into pan and cook, stirring often, until topping is boiling and thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove topping from heat and keep warm. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours; reheat.)

In large bowl, whip cream; fold in all but 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the coconut. Set coconut cream aside.

Spoon 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the pineapple topping onto half of each cr?. Fold in half; fold in half again. Spoon coconut cream over top. Sprinkle with remaining coconut.
