    4                    miniature pineapples (each about 1 1/4
                         -- pounds) or 2 (3 pound) pineapples
                         halved lengthwise -- cored, flesh cut
                         -- and
                         reserved for pineapple ice cream -- leaving
                         1/4-inch -- thick shells
    2      quarts        pineapple ice cream -- recipe follows
    4      large         egg whites at room temperature
      2/3  cups          granulated sugar
                         confectioners' sugar for sifting over
                         -- meringue
 
 Pat the pineapple shells dry with paper towels and freeze them,
 wrapped well in plastic wrap, for 1 hour. Pack the shells with ice
 cream, mounding the ice cream and smoothing the surface, and freeze
 the filled pineapples, covered with plastic wrap for at least 24
 hours.
 
 In metal bowl combine egg whites and granulated sugar, set the bowl
 over simmering water, and stir the mixture until the sugar is
 dissolved. Remove the bowl from the heat and with an electric mixer
 beat the meringue until it holds stiff glossy peaks. Working quickly,
 cover the ice cream in each pineapple with a smooth layer of meringue.
 Transfer the remaining meringue into a pastry bag fitted with a small
 star tip and pipe it decoratively over the pineapples. Sift the
 confectioners' sugar lightly over meringue, broil the pineapples in
 batches for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until the meringue is golden and
 serve them immediately.
