Take it from us: If you’ve already busted out the grill for dinner, it’s worth keeping those coals glowing a little longer. This grilled pineapple sundae is not only decadent but also downright gorgeous. Homemade cherry sauce takes the dessert up a notch; make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. May we suggest pairing your smoky creation with a mezcal cocktail?

6 servings

2 cups pitted and halved cherries, plus more cherries for serving

¼ cup granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pineapple—peeled, quartered and cored

1 quart vanilla ice cream

1. In a small pot, combine the cherries with the sugar and ¼ cup water over medium heat and cook until the cherries break down, 10 to 12 minutes.

2. Remove the mixture from the heat and use a potato masher or a fork to mash it into a paste. Strain into a small bowl, stir in the vanilla and set aside.

3. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Add the pineapple quarters and cook until charred all over, about 4 minutes per side. When cool enough to handle, cut the pineapple quarters into long strips or bite-sized pieces.

4. Scoop the ice cream into bowls and top with pineapple, fresh cherries and cherry sauce. Serve immediately.
