When I was living in Singapore, pineapple tarts were a staple for any festive season, be it Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Diwali or even Christmas. They are little pieces of butter pastry with a sweet and slightly tart pineapple filling and let me tell you, boy, are they addictive! Pop one in your mouth and you can't stop!
Now that I am no longer living in Singapore, and there isn't an option of buying these from the local bakeries (I don't think they've even heard of them here hmmmm), I decided to bake some myself with the help of a friend who shared her recipe.
Now I must say they didn't turn out quite so perfect on my first attempt. I think I may have overbaked them in all the excitement of making them, but they still hit the spot!
I will probably try to make another batch soon (the first one did not last very long around here!) and will share the recipe once I've sorted it out. Stay tuned! :)
