These delicious shortcakes substitute diced pineapples for classic strawberries, and uses store-bought biscuit dough for added convenience. It also significantly cuts down on the prep time. Not only is the pineapple flavored with cinnamon and sugar, the biscuits are as well before they're baked, giving you a double-dose of sweet spice. The pineapple is cooked down until it absorbs the cinnamon-sugar and is tender, which can be done in just 5 minutes. Spoon the bottom halves of the biscuits with the pineapple filling, then the whipped topping, and that's all it takes to get these shortcakes on the table. Close the biscuits up and be sure to serve them while they're still warm.
