Pineapple Tarts for CNY!

First off, I'm so sorry for being away. It's been pretty busy for the past few weeks and I can't seem to manage my time like I used to. Hopefully things will be less hectic after CNY and I'll be able to do more posts! :)

Chinese New Year is less than a week now (OMG, I still have so much things to do!). Beside red packets (ang pao), things that make me excited for CNY are the pastries/cookies and one of them is pineapple tart. IMHO, the best pineapple tarts that I've ever tried are baked by my mom period. Almost every year I help her, even though the only things I can do are just filling in the pineapple jams and glazing with egg yolks. Of course with no exception, this year my mom baked pineapple tarts for CNY. We didn't bake anything else though since time is running out, so we ordered other pastries instead. Well, here are some pics for the pineapple tarts!

Freshly wrapped with pineapple jams inside

Glazing with egg yolks

All glazed, shiny~

Baked and done!

The pineapple jam filling, yum!

Another batch of pineapple tarts with different shape, which one is better? They taste as good! :)

Till next time!

*Update*: Since some of you asked about the recipe, here's the pineapple tart recipe that I found pretty close to my mom's and it's very detailed with pics. I do have my mom's recipe but I'm too lazy to translate it :p, hope that helps!

Hey, I've been here before, but I don't see my comment! Did I forget to click on "publish"??? Well, I came back tonight to ask how you're doing. I guess I should also re-comment that I love the looks of the tarts--they've made me hungry a second time! =)
