Pretty Pretty Pineapple Centerpieces

Light It Up

When Chris and I spent Thanksgiving in Connecticut with his family this year I went completely gaga over his Aunt Kara’s Pineapple centerpieces and vowed to recreate them for the holiday party.

You’ll need:

  • A sharp knife
  • Tea lights
  • Asiago cheese (Per Hänni’s directive) to pair with all of that leftover pineapple you’ll be scooping out and snacking on
  • Optional: Make an appointment to borrow CK (because he actually carved the pineapple for me while I was making Pistachio Chocolate Fudge)

On three sides of the pineapple, carefully carve three oval shapes. Scoop out the excess fruit. Dry the pineapple throughly before lighting your tea lights – we stuffed our pineapples with paper towels and set them out on the deck for a few hours in the cold.
