Chinese New Year Goodies: Pineapple Tart Rolls (黄梨酥)

“Looking for pineapple tart recipe? Here’s my homemade pineapple tart, in rolls, from scratch. It’s simple that even a beginner in baking could do it!”

I made and am always making the express pineapple tarts, using store-bought pineapple jam filling from Phoon Huat shops. Both the open-faced tart and ball types. Just making the crust, and my tarts were ready to be indulged in. For this good year, I’ve made the filling as well. It’s not that the filling is difficult to make. It isn’t, but takes time, like 2 hours and so?! Then why now? Because I did not go Phoon Huat, but NTUC Finest supermarket. Saw the Sweet 16 brand pineapple there, I had the urge to make pineapple rolls! Not forgetting my new crust/ cookie pump set, I want to make pineapple rolls! Lol
