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

If you need videos, check Oi Lin's blog who authors 3 cookbooks. She has many great tips for making the pineapple tarts.

For suggestions from my readers, check out the comments in my previous post:

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.

  1. Happy new year SSB. Wish u all the best :)

  2. Hi SSB,

    Like you, im also in the process of finding out the pineapple tart recipe i like best.

    I have just made one batch yesterday and they are of the buttery, soft kind. The recipe i used were in similar quantities as most of the websites you put up in your post. i tried 2 recipes, one with egss, one eggless.

    the one with eggs:
    main ingredients -
    3.vanilla essence
    4.corn flour
    5.icing sugar

    the eggless one:
    main ingredients -
    3.icing sugar
    4.vanilla essence

    my sis commented that these were too soft for her liking, so i might experiment more to get a more 'cookies' like pastry.

    do drop by my blog ( for the photos and recipe =)


  3. Hi SSB,

    I just read up on your previous pineapple tart post and realised you've gotten the recipe from Oi Lin.

    That's the recipe i'm using =)


  4. I have not tried any pineapple tart yet. Thanks for all the blog website with recipes and tips.

  5. Hi SSB,
    Thanks a lot for your consolidation. Makes it easier for me to reference too! I'm also thinking of making pineapple tarts for my family for CNY. Will share the outcome with you too! ;)

  6. Hi SSB...thanks for linking me up and u have done a good job on the compilation!

  7. Thanks for your pinenapple jam recipe. By using Pineapple Bali certainly has the best taste^^

  8. I'm thinking of *maybe* making pineapple tarts so your post is so timely, thanks! Do you know where to buy the mould? Have a delicious 2009! =D

  9. Hello everyone, hope this is useful to all of you!

    Do come back and leave a comment if you have tried out any of these recipes. I haven't started baking the pineapple tarts yet. CNY is coming really early this year. :)

    Happy baking!

  10. Hi noobcook, I just bought the mould from Phoon Huat. They are selling fast. Left only a few and not many designs left. You should be able to find it at any baking supply stores. Happy baking! :)

  11. Hi SSB,

    Like you, I'm looking for pineapple art recipe too! This year's CNY is really fast and I've ot started baking yet. I was afraid bake too early, the cookies will ot be fresh.

    I've tried Florence's recipe and it's not bad, but it was two years ago and I can't really remember. I think it's more cookie-like, as in have more structure instead of very soft. Last year, I tried Aunty Yochana's recipe (with eggs) recipe and I find it's good!

  12. Thanks for all the links!
    I night wanna make some for CNY... still too lazy to do any this week so will see if i have the mood next week!

    Anyway, good luck in your search for the best recipe!
