Pineapple tarts.. yes, again! :D

This is my 3rd pineapple cookies baking attempt, 5th batch! :D Oh my gosh, I think this suits me more, I am simply not good at the open pineapple tarts :p When the dough is too soft, the dough sticks to the mould; when the dough is too hard (chill in fridge), the ridges won't show! arghhh.. haha. So I decided to do the "wrapped" kind of pineapple tarts. So this is it!

A big THANK YOU to SSB for sharing her recipe :)  I am grateful :)

Pineapple Tarts Experiment... again!

After my first failed attempt on pineapple tarts (I threw them away the next day as the pastry part is really too soft :( It is sad to throw away bakes as it is efforts and food wasted.), I decided to minimize the risks by using a ready-made pineapple tarts. This actually saves a lot of time, and uncertainty :p I read from SSB's blog that the Bake King pineapple paste is actually quite good. I managed to find it at the AMK Hub NTUC. For $4.70, I think it is totally worth it, it actually eliminates the tedious process totally :D Of course, I would like to prepare the paste myself again one day :p

Thank you for sharing this detailed recipe! I always appreciate bloggers who took the pain to write down the steps in detail, and she even included step-by-step photos - really helpful to newbies like me. I am grateful :)

CNY Cookies Experiement

CNY is one month away, I did not plan to bake pineapple tarts because it looks too difficult for my amateur skills :p nevertheless, I spent a few days reading other blogs on the recipes, and yesterday, I just had to bake these - it sounds so fun! I couldn't sleep well when i keep thinking about how to bake something :D

I followed the pineapple tart from Delicious Asian Food. Thank you DAF for sharing this recipe :)

I am not sure how to go about choosing suitable pineapples, so I decided to do a little experiment by using the canned pineapples. That way, if the cookies turn out to be yucky, I will not cry over the hard work grating the fresh pineapples :p
