This is my first time making these and i must say it does turned out well! *ponder* actually i wanted to do the rolled pineapple tart but i didn't know how...tried but it didn't turned out right so i made this type. The recipe i got from my mom's recipe collection book which she loves so much...where she got the recipe? highly likely from her friends...
so here's the recipe:
What you need for the pastry:
20g custard powder
150g unsalted butter
=> mix all the ingredients until it forms a soft dough. let it rest for 10 minutes then you can start making the tart.
What you need for the filling:
1 pineapple (pick one that's young and almost ripe)
1 screwpine leave
1inch cinnamon stick
5pcs of clove
this is how you make em:
- grate the pineapple.
- cook the pineapple (do not drain the pineapple) in a medium heat until dried
- add in the sugar, screw pine and spices.
- stir occasionally, cook until the pineapple jam became thick and rather glossy.
- set a side to cool.
- the right consistency is when you can make a small ball out of the pineapple jem.
take a teaspoon of the dough press with your hands making a disk then put the jem ball in the centre, close it gently. roll into a ball then shape it oblong or like the alien face then you cut the surface to make the thorny effect then brush egg wash on top of it. simple! Now you try..;)
