Joshua’s (Gan55) 2005 Version Pineapple Tart

Pretty busy lately haven’t been logging into my blog. I didn’t know Evelyn she had tagged me for Meme “You Are What You Eat” I just found out last 2 – 3 days ago. Let me see hmmm... I could accomplish it? No idea yet. LOL :P

I had baked some Pineapple Tarts last few days ago. Using Joshua’s (gan55) 2005 version Pineapple Tarts. The pastries are very soft and it melts in mouth and it has a very good buttery aroma too. DH thinks the tarts taste better with “clove” on it.

Pineapple Tarts 2005 Version
Credit By Joshua (gan55)

250g golden churn butter
170g cream (I'm using fresh dairy cream, UHT will also do)
75g caster sugar
400g Top flour or Cake flour
30g Corn flour
50g cream cheese
3 egg yolks
1 additional egg yolk + 1 tsp caster sugar (for glazing)

1. Sift Top flour and corn flour together
2. Using a cake mixer, blend the cream, butter, cream cheese and sugar together till you get a creamy mixture. (10 minutes on speed 2)
3. Add the 3 egg yolks and sifted flour into the creamed butter mixture.
using the cake mixer's dough mixer, mix till it becomes a smooth dough that is oily enough to not stick to your hand
4. Allow the dough to stand for 10 minutes. (Chilling helps if you are making the pineapple on top kind)
5. Divide dough into small balls and the pineapple filling into balls roughly 1/2 the size of the dough.
6. Wrap filling ball with dough ball and shape as desired. Glaze with the glazing mix.
7. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes in a oven. (If using convection oven with turbo fan, lower temperature to 160 degrees Celsius)
8. Remove from oven and re-glaze again before baking for another 5 minutes till golden brown on top.

Pineapple Filling:
4 pineapples
9 cloves
Caster sugar

1. Peel the pineapple.
2. Grate the pineapple using a grater or using a juicer (grater better)
3. Squeeze out the juice from the grated pineapple fiber.
4. In a frying pan, put the pineapple fiber and heat using low flame.
5. Add cloves and fry till water has dried up halfway.
6. Add sugar to taste. (Amount depending on how sweet pineapple was originally and how sweet u want filling to be)
7. Continue frying till filling starts to dry and turns golden in colour (about 1 hr later)

Note: While frying, you have to stir continuously and remember to keep the flame small. It’s easier to add sugar by dissolving it in some of the unwanted pineapple juice and adding this to the grated pineapple.

Note By Me:
1. Okay I cheat I used ready-made pineapple filling.
2. As for melts in mouth pastries: after mixing all the ingredients, try not to knead the dough too much.
3. I had omitted the sugar, cause I’m using ready-made pineapple filling, as they are usually very sweet.

Thanks Mike. Erm... I’m not sure what the meaning of “noob” but I can sense I belong to the noob family too! LOL

About the scrolling pictures, actually I “steal” the ermm idea? From Jan”s Kitchen ossp you remind me I didn’t asked her for permission. You can use the “mouse right click” and you see “view source” click on it. You can view the so-called HTML by note pad or word pad.

Hmm... HTML cannot be accepted here. I won't able to paste here to show you. Email can?

Thanks Ching,
Heehee, I cheat I use ready-made pineapple filling, so not that bad. Last year I tried making the pineapple filling myself. I end up cooking them more than 1 day.

Josh 2005 version pineapple tart really worth trying.
