And every year whenever its Chinese New Year, everyone will make several cookies and pastries for their families and friends who comes to visit them. There is one pastry that they always make, and that is pineapple tart, the sweet and cute pineapple tart.
So, since Chinese New Year is coming, I decided to make my first own pineapple tart with my aunt’s help and suprisingly, I fall in love with the process of making these pineapple tarts. I really do. Hahaha!
Anyway, here’s some photos of homemade pineapple tarts by my aunt and I!
Its been 2 weeks since my last update on the blog and during those 2 weeks, I was a little busy and tired but now, I am okay. I can go through with it.
So, to start the new month, I make a savory tart filled with vegetables. I normally make a sweet tart rather than savory, so its kinda a new experience to me because first of all, I never eat savory tart. Most of the time, I eat sweet tart.
Anyway, here’s the recipe! 😀
A. Tart :
100 gr room temperature butter
30 gr icing sugar
1 egg yolk
175 gr all purpose flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
B. Filling :
1/2 cup of cream
1/2 cup of cooked vegetables
In a bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth and light color and then beat in the egg yolk.
Sift in the flour and cornstarch to the butter mixture and mix them with spatula until a dough is form. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling by mixing the cream and egg.
Take out the dough from the fridge and start to roll out the dough to the tart mold.
Put the cooked vegetable on top of the tart and then pour the cream until halfway through the tart.
Bake at 180 degree celcius for about 25-30 minutes [depending on the type of oven you are using].
