Broiled/grilled pineapple is one of my favorite desserts! I'll have to try it with the cinnamon

I've never had pineapple like this before, but it was delicious! I agree with mountaingirl72 -- the cinnamon was perfect.

I LOVE cooked pineapple and this recipe was absolutely amazing! The cinnamon gave it a nice sweetness to balance out the natural tang of the pineapple. I'll definitely be making this again!
