I am on a Chinese New Year baking mood now, so for the past few days, I have been busy in the kitchen. Among all my bakes, I would have to say that this one was the hardest and took the longest time – the Pineapple Tart.
The pineapple jam was the most tedious part of this cookie. I grated 2 fresh pineapple, added 200gm of brown sugar to it and then just let it cook on the stove till all the juice have dried up while constantly stirring to ensure that it doesn’t burn. I think my pineapple was really juicy because it took me about 2 hours of stirring to cook it to a jam.
As for the pastry, there are just so many recipes out there. This year, I decided to try out this recipe from Food4Tots. They turned out really great although I still need a lot of practice rolling out the pastry. Definitely not an easy task but is it worth it? Yes!! Even Lil’ C loves them. I caught her sneaking a couple into her mouth last night! 😛
