Simple Eats – Pineapple Tarts II 黄梨酥挞 II

Pineapple Tarts 黄梨酥挞

Back-dating some posts as the first two days of CNY were busy days! I made a second batch of pineapple tarts on 1st Feb morning, using pineapple jam filling from Ailin Bakery House. I bought a new mould as well which is so much better than the one from Phoon Huat!!! yielded 140+ tarts this time. Not bad at all!

The sunflower motifs produced are so pretty and vivid!

Because they are more manageable, I was then able to roll the pastry and make the tart shell thinner and thus require less baking time, about 8 min should do the trick instead of the usual 10, first 4 mins empty without pineapple filling, and then another 4 mins with the pineapple filling on. The pineapple jam filling from Ailin Bakery House profess to use Sarawak Pineapples which have a delicious and natural sweetness amidst a slight hint of tartiness. I preferred this to what I got from Phoon Huat from the earlier batch. Ailin’s filling is also more moist and less sticky than Phoon Huat’s versions.

The final product before arranging them into an air-tight container and passing them to my neighbour. They also made pineapple tarts and gave just a small tub to try! Its the closed type which is equally yummy. So its only right that we present them something as a token of our appreciation. 🙂

German Cookies

Apart from pineapple tarts, I also managed to conjure about 100+ German Crunch Cookies to share with my neighbours and students as well. These are real easy and took very little effort to make.

      Hi Catherine, thanks for dropping by. Unfortunately, I’m not too sure where in South Africa you would be able to get the tart moulds. But you can try ordering from Kitchen Capers who has an online store (http://www.kitchencapers.net/shopstore/bakestore.htm). Do drop them an email. Good luck!
