These little Caramelized Pineapple Cheesecake Cups are so quick and easy, but so surprisingly delicious! The caramelized pineapple has a deep, incredible flavor. You won't believe how good these little bites are!
Serves: 8 servings (3-4 cups each)
  • 1 (8-ounce brick) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups finely diced pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 (15-count) packages phyllo cups, baked according to package directions and cooled
  • 2-3 shortbread cookies, crumbled
  1. In a medium bowl, beat softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together until smooth. Transfer to a zip-top bag and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the pineapple and cook, tossing periodically, until the juice has mostly evaporated and the pineapple is nicely caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  3. Cut off a corner of the zip-top bag and pipe the cream cheese mixture into each cup. Top each cup with a spoonful of caramelized pineapple and shortbread crumbles. Serve immediately.
