Gong Xi Fa Cai - Happy New Year
Wishing you a world of prosperity. May the lunar new year bring good health, joy,love, peace, hope and happiness to you and family.
Since last 2 weeks, I’m quite busy for making pineapple tart and cookies for Chinese New Year Goodies. First of all I had make pineapple tart for my friend to tried it and them all said nice.
So next day have 6 persons ordering. I have made a few types of cookies, not only pineapple tart; I have made Cornflakes Cookies and Choc Chip Cookies also. My pineapple tart is different from Singapore style. I got this recipe from my best friend in Thailand. She makes this pineapple tart and sales too. She gave me the recipe quite long time ago; I think it’s more than 5 years.
This is how I made it. First of all I make the dought and put in the fridge for 1/2 hrs, while I'm waiting the dought to be set, I make pineapple filling which I bought the ready one from Phoonhut shop. After that I make the dought into a ball and then put the filling.
Roll into this shape and roll on the wood strip to make the line as shown in above picture.
This is after bake for 10-15 mins, put on the wire rack and let it cool.
Pack in the container and ready to delivery :-)
Last 2 years, I tried to makes this pineapple tart just for us during CNY. I gave to my relative and some friends to tried it too, but some of them are preferred to eat Singapore style. The reason was test is different or skin structure is different, but this year was different because different people different test. Right!
This year I have made cookies just for sale about 25-28 boxes and left for us to eat also about 2-3 boxes. I have been baking cookies nearly everyday, till now my daughter said; she will never eat pineapple tart until next year, because she helps me and she also testified too. For my son what ever you make it’s nice for him and never bored. That’s my boy!! ;-)
For pineapple tart’s recipe, I still can’t post it like now. I don’t know whether my friend want to keep her recipe secret. I have to check with her again. If she agrees for me to post the recipe, I will post it later.
Anyway I have to take this opportunity to say “Thank you” to her, to share with me the recipe.
