Pineapple Tarts 黄梨饼 CNY 2016

黄梨饼是我从小到大, 从一而终的最爱!  其实从小开始, 已经跟黄梨饼结下不解之缘。犹记儿时过年, 小小的双手, 总会在妈妈一粒粒的太阳花形黄梨饼上穿梭(不是偷吃哦!), 将那些黄梨饼点上花芯。即使到今天, 妈妈依然坚持纯手工制作黄梨饼。身为她女儿的我, 虽然喜欢各种创新的造型, 不过对保留传统美味这一块, 却很坚持哦! 
今年开始有一些年饼小订单,忙碌之余,却乐再其中!:)
This is just a record for my CNY 2016 cookies Order~ Love shaped Pineapple tarts.
这里做个小记录,食谱恕不公开。
