This s very famous cookie in Malaysia, almost everyone would have tasted at least once. I have got order for this cookie also, it's delicious Pineapple Tart. Let me introduce star of the show;
Let us check how I made this cookie, its quite tedious but fun making it...
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 1/2 tbsp of custard flour
2 tbsp of corn flour
1 tsp of vanila extract
1 tbsp of sugar
1 cup of butter
1 tbsp of ghee
1 egg yolk (beaten for egg wash)
1 whole pineapple grated
2 cups of sugar (reduce if pineapple is sweet)
1 screw-pine leaf
Cook over low heat all the ingredients for jam, it takes about 3- 4 hours to get thick jam. Cool it while making the dough for crust.
This is a very simple crust making method, mix all the dry ingredients
to the wet ingredients and knead well until soft, leave aside
Using a cookie press, squeeze out dough like above
Roll out small amount of pineapple jam and place it on one side of the dough, you
may ask why I have two jam rolls, I just wanted to make everything fast because
it do take a long time to complete the whole process
Roll out the end of dough where we have placed the jam and roll to a complete cylinder
See how to roll it?
Arrange the tarts on a baking tray
Apply egg wash on one side of the cookie and bake at 150 degree for 15- 20 minutes,
make sure you heat the oven 5 minutes earlier before baking
Our Pineapple Tart now is ready to be served
Do try and let me know how it was!
