Ingredients

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, quartered and sliced

Kosher salt

1/2 cup Dulce de Leche, store-bought or homemade, recipe follows, plus more for topping

2 brioche rolls, split

3/4 cup cold heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pint coconut or vanilla ice cream

Toasted coconut flakes, for topping

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pineapple and a pinch of salt; cook, turning the pineapple occasionally, until softened and browned in spots, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in 1/4 cup Dulce de Leche. Cook until the pineapple is glazed, 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat; let cool slightly.
  2. Place the rolls, cut-side up, on a baking sheet; bake until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes.
  3. Beat the heavy cream, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl with a mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form, 1 to 2 minutes; fold in 2 tablespoons Dulce de Leche until just combined. Spread each roll half with about 1/2 tablespoon Dulce de Leche and top with the pineapple mixture. Top with ice cream, the whipped cream, Dulce de Leche and coconut.

  1. Pour two 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Cover with foil and set in a roasting pan; add enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the dish. Bake at 425 degrees F until thick and dark amber, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until thickened, 1 hour. (Makes about 2 cups.)
