Pineapple Tart

Chinese New Year is around the corner. In fact is just less than a week! I should start baking Chinese New Year cookies by now but my Christmas cookies is still around sitting on my living room table. Well, hubby and Mishu not a fan of cookies. Last year when I was vacation in Malaysia ,I bought quite alot of bakery ingredients and stuffs from the bakery store. I should take this opportunity to use all the paste and flour I brought home before it's goes bad. One of the flour and filling which I bought is Pineapple Tart mixture. It's really easy and simple to make this tart ,no brainier also can do it! It's also my first time making Pineapple Tart and I found the pre-mix flour mixture come out really taste good!!


Ingredients:

1 pack Pineapple Tart flour mixture (400 gm)

2 sticks butter (250 gm) softened

2 eggs

1 pack Pineapple Tart filling (1 lb)

1 egg yolk for brushing
Yield about 4 dozen





Method:



1: Prepare your pineapple jam filling by making pineapple jam balls, each from a heaping teaspoonful, set aside. The side is about the coin size each.Preheat oven to 375 F.



2: Whisk butter until light and creamy,then add in egg one at a time.Add in flour mixture and mix well until mealy crumbs are formed. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky.


3:Lightly flour a clean working surface and roll dough out to about 0.5cm thick.Cut out the tart bottoms with a pineapple tart cutter or round cookie cutter and place onto a baking sheet prepped with parchment paper. Top or roll them with your prepared balls of pineapple jam.

4:Lightly brush the lattices using a pastry brush and the egg wash mixture. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the crispy-ness of the tart you desire. Bake longer for a harder, crispier, tart crust or until the pastry is a pale gold.


5:Cool on a wire tray, then store in an airtight container, using a piece of parchment or doily in between layers.




The crust is so buttery soft and good! Wish I bought the flour mixture more from the store!
I used a Pineapple Tart strip rolling pin to make the shape.

Ready for egg yolk brushing

emmm yummy! It must be easier just to pour the flour without measurement. You could still bake some cookies and ask Elliot to take it to his work. I took mine to work for others to finish them.
