X'mas is slightly more than a month away & many will be starting to prepare for the festivities of the season soon.

Here is a recipe for Pineapple Tarts that I love and which many have tried & ordered every single year.

Ingredients:-

A
114 g plain flour
114 g self raising flour

B
142g butter

C
1 egg
1 tsp cold water

D
egg wash (beaten yolk/milk)

E
500g - 750g pineapple jam (can be bought from supermarkets & shops selling baking items)


Method:-

Sieve A.
Mix A and B with fingertips till crumbly.
Add in C and knead into a dough.

Wrap in plastic foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll dough till slightly less than half a cm.
Use cookie cutter to cut into shapes.
Place on greased baking tray (or baking tray lined with baking sheet).
Bake blind in preheated 190 degrees C oven for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven & brush with egg wash.
Roll the pineapple jam into balls and place on baked dough.
*Optional:- place design on top of jam
Bake in preheated 190 degrees C oven for 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and leave to cool before storing in air-tight container.

Makes approximately 50 little pineapple tarts.
The amount of pineapple jam is up to you. I prefer using more jam so much so that one of my friends calls them "jam-on-tarts". My brother refers to them as "Dolly's Glory".

Tip:- Especially when making large quantities, I use the universal blade of the Braun machine that I have to knead A & B and mix with the egg and water mixture. This really saves a lot of time and energy.
