Looking for pineapple tarts recipe

I'm looking for a good pineapple tarts recipe. It must be tested and proven to be really really good. Can be your own recipe if you are willing to share it in my blog. Or let me know the link if it comes from a website or a blog. :)

I'm also looking for a good pineapple paste cos I don't think I want to make the paste myself. ;P Anyone knows where or which shop sells the best pineapple paste?

Hehe... thanks!


  1. Woah! Preparng for Chinese New Year already, huh? :)

    You may like to refer to “过年饼”by Alan Ooi for "Pineapple Nastar Rolls" - 黄梨酥. But, I haven't tried this, sorry! Just that his "almond & green peas cookies" are good!

  2. Hi SSB,
    Try Florence's recipe.
    http://wlteef.blogspot.com/2006/01/pineapple-tarts.html. Looks very good leh. But it's a lot of work, you sure you wanna bake? :p

  3. I've tried a pineapple recipe (the wrapped-type like from Bengawan Solo)from Oi Lin's book and it worked out very well. Very easy to do. Her blog is as follows and I've bought all her 3 books and so far, all recipes I've tried worked out very well too.


    I recently tried the Bake King brand of pineapple jam/paste and it's very nice. My mum has for the past years tried other brands and not so good. Some turned out very hard and dry after baking. I've used Bake King a few times already and will now stick to it. FYI, NTUC currently has it on promotion at only S$3.95 per pack, so do try it.

  4. Haha... a bit early hor. :) Oh, I saw that book before. Maybe I'll look for it. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Florence's recipe looks simple. I will try this out! I know it's a lot of work, that's why I'm not making the pineapple paste myself. Hehe... :)

    Hi Lilee, I just returned Oi Lin's book to the library! Used her recipe to make the tau sar piah. Luckily I copied down her pineapple tarts recipe too.

    Bake King brand pineapple jam/paste! Thanks for telling me!

    Actually I'm not a fan of pineapple tarts. Never bake it before too. That's why need some tips from u all. All recommendations are welcome!

  5. well actually i have a pineapple tart dough recipe from my home econs classes last year. for the pineapple paste we jus scooped some from this giant container my teacher had prepared for us. my classmates and i all enjoyed the tarts very much :) i am not sure how many this recipe makes though, we made a mix of opened and closed tarts ;p

    80g icing sugar
    250g flour
    150g butter
    1/2 egg
    (egg) glaze
    pineapple paste (amt nt specified)

    1. sift the flour and icing sugar into a bowl.
    2. cut butter into the flour mixture.
    3. add in the 1/2 egg (shld already be beaten)
    4. use dough as desired.
    5. glaze with egg before baking at 180 deg C or until golden brown.


  6. I do not like the Phoon Huat pineapple jam. The one that is nice it from Sun Lik in Seah St

  7. Hai,

    Just to share my recipe with you

    250gm butter
    100gm 100 ghee
    450gm superfine flour + OPTIONAL (10gm of matcha)
    1 egg

    OPTIONAL shredded cheddar cheese for topping
    for the pastry @ rolling or wrap up type.

    i can guarantee you will love this recipe as it is crispy & crunchy.


  8. Hi SSB

    Try My Kitchen Snippets. Her recipe are foolproof.


    Have fun making them.

  9. Hi, hope my post doesn't come too late, I baked a batch of pineapple tart followed the recipe from Florence-Do what I like, the texture of the tart is very good,crisp and crumbly, I have added rum instead of vanilla to the tart dough.Definitely a keeper.
