Peanut Butter Tartlets Recipe

Peanut Butter Tartlet with Raisins

Six days, another six days and I shall hop on my flight on my way back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year. Never mind the unbearable coach seat (aka Economy class), 20 hours of eyes-wide-open (I can’t sleep on the plane) and unappetizing in-flight food, I can hardly wait for the day to come.

Peanut Butter Tartlet with Raisins

I am brimming with excitement. I think I am overly excited that I got myself sick. I am anxious to see my beloved family again, and, of course, I am looking forward to the mini Malaysian floggers get-together. But I have a problem. Not a material one, I reckon. As a matter of fact, it’s a very fun one that stimulates lots of creativity. I need to clear out my fridge before I leave. I have lots of food sitting in the fridge–mostly leftover ingredients that I have used for my previous recipes–lots of them, little things here and there. I have to make use of them to make something good.

Peanut Butter Tartlet with Raisins

Rummaging through my fridge, I found some random stuff such as peanut butter, butter, eggs, raisins, another sheet of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, spring roll skins(!), sesame seeds, frozen shrimp, etc. I pondered for a while and came up with two brilliant and beautiful cooking ideas. Here is one of them that I just couldn’t stop oooh’s-and-ahhh’s when I first saw these Peanut Butter Tartlets out of my oven. Too cute, too adorable.

    All I ever find when I clean out my fridge is dead pieces of celery leaves trapped in the corners of the drawer and the odd moldy cheese.

    These tartlets sound as sweet and delicious as they look!

    So I’m thinking we add some sambal and a little coconut milk to that peanut butter, then add some poached shrimp and make those tarlets really Malaysian. =D

    Maybe you can post what you have left in your fridge and we can help you figure out how to make a Musgovian meal out of it.

    I am envious that you get to go home for CNY. I am able to sleep on the plane but not the whole 20 hrs unfortuantely.

  10. Rasa Malaysia

    MW – yeah sure, come on over and help yourself. :P

    KY – I don’t know about vegetarian food…unless you fly Business class and above, if not, all in-flight food are gross.

    Tiga – wah, you are already in Singapore ah? So fast? No wonder missing for a couple of days. Hehe.

    These tartlets look amazing! They are so cute like little nibbles of creamy peanut butter. I like the puff on your pastry too!

  12. Onion Raita

    Little one look very nice and cute. Hope you finished off the old ones and your fridge must be working again.

    Waiting for some more food for thought!
