Pineapple Tarts (黄梨饼)



I miss my mum when I make these pineapple tarts. Since I am still a kid, my mum used
to sell cookies during Chinese New Year to earn some extra income. She made many types of cookies but pineapple tarts is the best seller. I like her pineapple tarts very much but it is just too difficult to copy since there is no written recipe. I have tried to emulate her skill but I got to admit she is so gifted.


This time I use this simple yet delicious recipe from Sonia. This recipe is highly recommended by many bloggers too.


These cookies are melt in mouth kind and nice buttery taste. Simply love it !


A sunny day for my sunflowers !

I am submitting this post to Chinese New Year Delights 2013 hosted by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover.


This post is also linked to the event, Little Thumbs up organised by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids and my little favourite DIY and the theme of this month is Pineapple! Join the fun if you bake or cook anything with pineapple this month.

  4. Esther, love the generous pineapple filling! I always associate pineapple tarts with CNY. I always love the buttery melt in your mouth feeling. Mum's cooking is best so I better start interviewing my mum for her recipes.

    1. Yes, they are handmade . I weighted each of them first then only started to roll. You're right they are sticky but still manageable ;)
