All time favorite Pineapple Tart


As I was baking this last night,  I marvelled at how I managed to accomplish baking this tart last year out from 5kg of flour because last night 900g of flour already had me to the brink of breaking my back. My shoulders ached terribly too. By the way, I didn't really finished the entire 900g flour because I ran out of the pineapple jam (which was a relief actually).  I gave glad cries when I finally popped the last tray to the oven and couldn't help feeling happy that this once a year baking ordeal was finally over. I have a serious addiction to pineapple tarts. Once I start eating one piece, I just couldn't stop eating it. I especially love the soft texture of the pastry where it melts in your mouth instantly. Coupled with the sweet pineapple jam, it produces a heavenly taste which leaves you craving for more. Since it's a once a year affair, I think I deserve to indulge in this tart because you can't anyhow buy it anywhere once the chinese new year is over (unless of course you go to Jonker Streee in Malacca). So everyone out there, if you have the same addiction on the tarts like me, eat all you can now.
