Pineapple Tarts

Pineapple Tarts

Picture 1 of 7

These pineapple tarts need no introduction. I had previously made a batch of pineapple tarts when I first tested out Novice Baker‘s pineapple tarts recipe. This time, my pineapple tarts come in a different shape, they look like cookies, open face, and topped with pineapple jam filling. They are still crumbly, buttery, and addictive. Once you pop one in your mouth, you just can’t stop and want more.

Pineapple Tarts

Personally, I love enclosed pineapple tarts, meaning the pineapple jam filling is enclosed inside the pastry. I think they taste the best. Open face pineapple tarts might be prettier looking but the filling is always dryer since it’s exposed and baked, and hence not as moist. In any case, it is your personal preference how you want your pineapple tarts to look like: pineapple rolls, enclosed and looks like a pineapple, or open face like the above. Regardless of the shapes and sizes, pineapple tarts are one of the most popular and mouthwatering Chinese New Year sweet treats. There are many varieties available on sale, but the best pineapple tarts are definitely home made.

Try this pineapple tarts recipe, it’s a keeper!

    hi, very good recipes, I’m living in australia and often go to singapore to buy tarts.
    I’ll try your recipe but how much is a stick of butter?

    thanks May.

    Hi all – thanks for your comments.

    Hi May – 1 stick of butter = 113.5 gr or 1/4 pound or 4 ounce or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons or 14 teaspoons.

    Wow! Haha! Just so happens I had a craving and made pineapple tarts just a little over a week ago, and I pop by and see more tarts here! YUM! Mine are all gone now though… :P

  30. amanda says:

    these look wonderful ive only had the west indian pineapple tarts which usually come in folded triangles.. im curious to taste if the fillings are similar

  31. Sarafina says:

    I think that looks quite yummy! I would like to give this a try!
    I may not like pineapples, but, as Manggy suggested, mango would go great!

  32. Esther C says:

    Hi! Does anyone know where I can get hold of the daisy shaped tart mould like the one in the picture? I had one given to me by my Mum but silly old me gave it away to a friend. I realised now that that shape is the one that appeals to me.

  33. Firn says:

    Dear Bee,

    I have been following your site for nearly 2 years now. I’m a poor starving student in Dublin who misses Malaysian cooking a lot and your recipes inspire my weekly menu.

    I tried making these tarts for CNY, but I found that the pastry kept buckling and loosing its shape when I bake them. I did use the egg yolk glaze. Any tips on how to prevent this from happening?

  34. Edmcook says:

    I was wondering if you would know where I could buy the cutout for the tarts; anywhere in Canada? more specifically in Edmonton? hahaha

    Hi Bee – Mark here writing from Melbourne, Australia. This recipe looks amazing and am thinking of making it this coming weekend. Just one question, what should the pastry consistency look/feel like? I’ve never made a pastry dough before and want to get it right as I will be making quite a big batch. Thanks!

    Dear Bee,
    I have been following your page for awhile.I must say you are very kind in sharing all the recipes, and it’s the complete/real ones,without any hidden/missing ingredients.There have been many instances when I came across my favorite chinese recipes/nyonya etc learned from my mother in law(through the agak-agak ways-no written recipes), found here in full writing. I am simply happy when I find them here.
    Thank you, Bee.
    God Bless you.
