Rolled Pineapple Tarts Recipe

A must-have during the Chinese New Year, pineapple tarts are almost always a crowd favourite. This recipe yields utterly scrumptious and perfect pastry—super buttery, crumbly and addictive pineapple cookies that may stick to your mouth and teeth, but even if it does, it sure is worth it!

Not only will this delicious treat keep tummies content, fresh pineapples are laden with health benefits. Pineapples, because of their fibre and water content, help to prevent constipation, promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract.

The fruit also contains the antioxidant vitamin C, when eaten in its natural form, can help to fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution, reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin texture. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in the formation of collagen, the support system of the skin.

Unsure on how do you choose a pineapple for this recipe? Well, when you’re at the store, look for a pineapple that's heavy for its size. It should be free of soft spots and dark eyes. A ripe pineapple will smell sweet on its end.

Easy to cut with a sharp knife, slice off the top and bottom of this tropical fruit so you have two flat surfaces. Cut off the outer skin, then cut the pineapple into quarters. Be careful to avoid the core.
