Looking for pineapple tarts recipe 2

It's 2009! Hope it will be a great year for everyone and a better year for Singapore!

Continued from my post Looking for pineapple tarts recipe, I did a little research by searching for various blogs that posted recipes of the Pineapple Tarts. Never too early to start baking for CNY. It's only less than a month away and many people have already started baking cookies and testing for their perfect recipes. I'm only focusing on Pineapple Tarts (open type). There are just too many recipes around and I don't want to be too carried away. Hope you will find this useful! ;)

Here are a few selected ones that interests me.

Florence's Pineapple Tarts - she baked the tart shell and top up the filling later to prevent the jam from becoming too hard and dry. I might want to try this.

Delicious Asian Food Pineapple Tart Pastry - from mother-in-law’s recipe and have a nice buttery smell pastry which melts in the mouth. I might want to try this.

Aunty Yochana's Lattice Pineapple Tarts - she prefers this recipe than the other one.
Aunty Yochana's Pineapple Tart Milk Cookies - pastry doesn't use any eggs at all.

Fresh from the Oven Pineapple Rolls/Tarts - two types of pineapple fillings here. One is by grating the pineapple from scratch, the other uses canned crushed pineapple.

Little Corner of Mine Pineapple Tarts - uses cornflour/cornstarch to make the pastry melt-in-the-mouth.

Lily's Pineapple Tarts - used canned pineapples

Other tips:
1. Store-bought pineapple jam - Sun Lik in Seah St or Bake King brand (Phoon Huat not recommended)

2. Use SCS, Lurpak unsalted butter or canned Golden Churn, if you can afford it.

3. Open tarts pastry will not melt in the mouth so much as those wrapped pineapple tarts. Rub-in method helps to achieve the melt in the mouth effect.

4. Place the tray in the middle rack.
