Pineapple Tarts

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and nothing excites me more than collecting 'hong baos' (Red
packets with notes inside)! I have seen many bombardment of pineapple tart recipes of different variation
appearing in many baking blog posts and I was tempted to just follow the crowd. I am considered a baker
anyway, a newbie one to be exact. I searched the web randomly and landed on a blog called foodismylife
and here is the link of the recipe which I had followed. It was my first attempt baking pineapple tarts and it
was a success.

The recipe as follows:

500g pineapple fillings (I used Poon Huat's)
400g plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs corn flour
63g icing sugar
250g unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 no.s egg yolks (40g) + 1 no. egg yolk (egg wash)

1 pcs of pineapple tart has 6g filling and 11g dough

Total amount of pineapple tarts I made: 67 pcs

Oven temperature: 200 Degrees

Duration: About 15 mins

Soft, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth, buttery, fragrant, a bit sweet, proportion just right.
