Cream Cheese Shortcakes:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Brush pineapple slices with melted butter and grill until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with ice cream and caramel topping on top of Cream Cheese Shortcakes. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.

Cream Cheese Shortcakes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a food processor or pastry cutter, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add the cream cheese, stirring to combine, then add the heavy cream, stirring just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, rerolling as necessary. Arrange the shortcakes on the prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely before serving.
