To make the Chantilly Cream:
Whisk the cream, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until soft peaks form. The cream should hold its shape but still be satiny in appearance. It should never be grainy.
Place a macaroon on each of 6 dessert plates. Cover each macaroon with some diced pineapple and some Chantilly Cream. Repeat layering with another macaroon, pineapple, and cream. Top with the remaining macaroon. Serve immediately.
