Pineapple Tarts for CNY

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone~ Moo~

Suddenly feel like want to bake something for CNY. Last year I tried plain cookies and butter cake, so this year, I tried pineapple tarts~

I followed this recipe, from Little Corner of Mine. Instead follow all his recipe, I lacked of certain ingredient, and substituted butter with margarine.

These are my ingredients:

260g margarine
150g fine sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

670g all purpose flour
60g of corn flour

1 pack of pineapple tarts fill, about 300g, can be bought from most super market.. (I wanted to make the filling from raw pineapple, but out of time... next time ba)

1. beat margarine and sugar until light. Add in yolks, vanilla extract, and salt, and beat until fluffy.

2. Add in all purpose flour and corn flour, mix well into dough.

3. Instead shape and put the completed dough into fridge, use a soup spoon or any suitable mold to shape the dough. Fill only half of the spoon, compress it, and add in some pineapple fill. Then, put in more dough to cover the pineapple fill, compress it again, so the pineapple fill will be surrounded inside.

4. Unleash your creativity, use sharp tool to carve it before bake.

5. To make the tarts look golden brown, use the white from eggs to spread on top before bake.

6. Bake the tarts in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 17 minutes.

It's 6cm in length, so clumsy.

The world Exclusive V's Edition, HA.

And a lot other more.

This is my first time, moreover, the recipe from websites have not included photos for every steps, so I am quite 'try and error' while making this tart.

I do followed the recipe, by press it into 0.5cm thick on a pan, and put in fridge for 30 minutes, but it failed... So I use my way: using a spoon to shape it.

Lucky, the taste is nice~ (At least me and my grandma  said nice~ From 50 pieces, now left about 15 only~)
