2009 Pineapple Tarts

No, there is no typo error in the title. These are some pineapple tarts I made last year, my first attempt actually.

Last year was my first time making pineapple tarts, my favorite. In total I made 4 batches to experiment different recipes. At the end, the very first batch that I made was the most preferred one by my family members.

I intended to bake pineapple tarts this year also and I have actually prepared all the ingredients a few weeks ago but I just delayed my plan week by week.

Thanks to the last stage of pregnancy, I feel really lazy to do almost anything. I still cook sometimes but only very simple dishes. That's the reason why the frequency of my blog post is getting lesser.

I will be due soon......officially in 3 weeks time but who knows baby may want to come out to see the world earlier.

Here I wish everyone an early "HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR 恭贺新禧!"

  8. Hi! Nice and even pineapple tarts. Mind sharing the recipe caused my tarts always turn out not so even like yours. You can e-mail to me at By the way is this yr first bb? Welcome to the motherhood world.

  9. Hi Christina,

    Thanks for your lovely comment. Ya, this is my first bb.

    I am not sure what you mean by not even, do you mean the egg wash? One tip is to bake the pineapple tart in oven for 5 -6 mins until the shell looks cooked (dry), remove from oven and apply egg wash. Return to oven again to bake for another few mins till fully cooked (the edge turns light brown).

    I made these pineapple tarts last year and I modified the recipe here and there for different batches. I didn't have proper record, that's the reason why I didn't include the recipe here in the first place.

    I intend to make pineapple tarts again during my maternity leave (I hope I have time to do so because I already bought the pineapple paste), I will share the recipe after my experiment.

    Sorry about that.

  10. Hi! Happy & Blessed Lunar New Year to you. Ok noted for the egg wash experience will try it next time. I find the shape of my tarts are not even. Some of the pastry are thicker some of them just nice. I think for this we have to do more then we are able to judge.

  11. Hi Christina,

    Happy CNY to you too!!

    In order to have even size, u need to measure the amount of each dough and filling. I find it vtime-consuming to weigh each dough and filling, so I use measuring spoon instead.

    Each tart I use 1 tbsp of dough and 1 tsp of pineapple paste.

    Hope this helps.

  12. Hi!

    Thanks for your idea will try out the next time.

    Best Regards,
    Christina Poh
