Would this be it?

WARM PINEAPPLE TART WITH PINEAPPLE-COCONUT SAUCE

Tart:
1 pound frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 egg yolk
1 large pineapple, peeled, quartered, cored and cut into 11/2-inch-long, 1/4-inch-thick wedges
4 tablespoon sugar
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Sauce:
1/3 cup sugar
5 egg yolks
3/4 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk
3/4 cup pureed pineapple
2 tablespoons dark rum

Make sauce: In a bowl whisk sugar and yolks to blend. Add coconut milk and pineapple puree and continue to whisk. Pour into a heavy saucepan and heat, stirring constantly for about 6 minutes, until custard thickens and coats back of a spoon. Make sure you don't bring it to a boil. Strain custard through a sieve into a bowl and stir in Jamaican rum. Cool, cover and refrigerate, overnight, if desired.

Make tart: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Roll out puff pastry dough, cut out 5 6-inch rounds and transfer to baking sheets. Using a fork, prick dough all over. In a small bowl whisk confectioners' sugar and egg yolk to blend and brush over dough rounds. Bake 15 minutes until golden brown. Cool.

Preheat broiler. Heat a heavy, large non-stick skillet over high heat, add pineapple and cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Arrange pineapple wedges on each pastry round, covering them completely. Sprinkle each tart with 1 tablespoon sugar. Watching carefully, broil until edges of pineapple begin to brown, for about 5 minutes. To serve, transfer tarts to large plates, spoon sauce around and garnish with mint sprigs.

Yield: 5 servings
