Peel the pineapple and slice crosswise into 6 rounds. Remove the core from each slice with a 1-inch cookie cutter.
Preheat the broiler.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Arrange the pineapple slices on a broiler pan. Sprinkle with half the sugar mixture.
Broil 4 inches from the heat source until golden brown on the edges, 3 or 4 minutes.
Turn the pineapple slices; sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture and broil until brown on the remaining side, 2 to 3 minutes.
* Top with vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream.
* Substitute maple sugar or crumbled maple-sugar candies for the brown sugar.
