Grill-Baked Apple Crisp

A crisp that doesn't bake in the oven, but rather in the grill! For a hint of smokiness, you can cook it over gas; for a more distinctly outdoorsy flavor, use charcoal.

Roasted Pineapple Shortcakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

This simple dessert cooks in the oven, but you could make it on the grill (our preference)—cook the pineapple until grill marks appear and lightly toast the angel food cake. Whichever way you go with this dessert, the cinnamon whipped cream is delicious, and a scoop of ice cream wouldn't be a bad idea either.
