Tarte tatin was originally a French dish. It is very similar to an apple pie turned upside down. The dish, however, does not have to be made with apples, you can use pineapple or any other fruit for that matter.

Put the pie crust over the top and tuck the edges in.
Take a sharp knife and make 4 holes.
