    Good job! They look super yummy. I have friends from Singapore and Malaysia who go crazy for these, but I never really liked them that much. I'm thinking that might be because they were store-bought ones that were too sweet. But when Penny made some last year, they were really good! I guess you're right about everyone having different pineapple tart preferences!

    Thanks Billy. You're right! Sg n M'sian denizens do go crazy about these tarts. Myself included. Homemade ones reminds us of home. : )

    I am curious how it'll turn out if I owned a cake mixer. Mmmm …

    Love LOVE pineapple tarts! Made some a couple of years ago and yes… tedious.. especialy stirring of the pineapple. But I had the pineapple juice too! hahahaaaaa

    I would absolutely love to make kueh together! Two people makes much easier work, and I think I'll learn stuff from you too. :)

    Haha I've eaten them all already, save for 1 lonely tart kept in a jar to see how long it keeps for. You should come to Melb during CNY! I think I'll bake these things again then! :D

    I have the same mould! Mum got it for me back home :-D
    Even though it's pretty time consuming,homemade pineapple tarts still taste the best!

      I love your blog – I check it every time I’m at work and have almost fielld a booklet with things to try from here. One question, though – do you have any suggestions for picky eaters that don’t love cream cheese? I can’t wait to make a key lime icing, but my boyfriend and I aren’t big fans of cream cheese, so I’m hoping there’s an alternative. Thanks!!

    Hey Fatbooo! I’ve been looking for an authentic recipe after trying an ‘aunty’s’ homemade pineapple tarts and I think yours fits the bill perfectly :D It had pineapple fibres in it and the pastry was firm & crumbly… plus I also love the tartness of pineapple. Thanks so much for sharing it! I must try this as soon as the opportunity arises :)

    Wow drooling here! Just bought one box of R&S pineapple tarts fron Glen Waverley shop for A$6.00! So ex but really craving them being pregnant and having gestational diabetes. Seems like a lot of work making them. And yours really look like theirs! Yum!

      She probably got it from Singapore at one of the baking stores, you may also be able to find it in eBay.

    Hi, Amos here from Singapore. I followed your recipe and the tart turn out crumpy. My wife likes it soft when chewed upon. How can I make the tart softer? Thanks.

    • Fatboo
      January 18, 2013

      Thanks for commenting, Amos. Like my recipe says, the tarts my family makes has a firm-crumbly pastry. I’m not sure how the softer pastry is made but I suppose you could use more butter, use it very cold and mix it into the flour with only the tips of your fingers, and try not to overhandle the pastry.

      Alternatively you could search for another recipe that has soft pastry type.

    Tried ur recipe for the crust. Loved it! It’s was my first time baking but my tarts turned out looking really good. Easy to follow recipe. I used ready made pineapple paste which turned out to be quite nice, not too sweet and had the fibre in it as well.
    Gonna look through your other recipes and try them out again soon. Happy lunar new year in advance!

    Thanks for sharing, I followed the recipe and made very tasty pineapple tart that my whole family like. Once again thanks for this first class recipe and instruction, I certainly hope more people will try this out instead of buying ready made ones.

    Great recipe! I am a Malaysian and live in Ghana and needed a quick CNY fix to help me get into the festive season. It was all worth the effort and your recipe worked so well. :) Now my family and I have tarts to last us for days (they’ll be gone soon!) but they definitely are worth the effort!!

    Hi, these look sooo good! How many tarts (approx) does this recipe yield?
    Thanks :)

    • Fatboo
      January 22, 2014

      It depends on the mould size. My small bite-size moulds gave me 160 tarts.
