Pineapple Tarts Frenzy
I'm currently in the quest for the perfect Pineapple Tart. It has to be melt-in-the-mouth, the pastry must have a fragrant buttery smell and the pineapple paste must not be overly sweet. Therefore, I spent a few consecutive days baking these three different versions:

Type 1: Tangerine Style

Type 2: Bengawan Solo Style

Type 3: Open Style

I really like these three types of tarts but I'm still trying to refine them further! I hope the pastry would be even more melt-in-the-mouth! Gotta do more baking tomorrow. Heh! And I can feel my wasitline expanding these days. I pop in several after baking every batch, and that clearly explains why I feel fat. But nothing's going to stop me from enjoying all the nice treats during CNY.

    The recipe for my Pineapple Tarts was given to me by my Aunt. Will be asking her if she's okay with me posting the recipe online. If she gives the nod, I'm all for it! :)
