Rooster Pineapple Tarts_2017 CNY cookies_凤梨酥_金鸡报春


The first post of 2017 dedicate to my favourite pineapple tart. Made them into rooster shape since coming CNY is a rooster year.
















Rooster Pineapple Tarts_2017 CNY cookies_凤梨酥_金鸡报春
*makes 44 enclosed tarts

175g butter (salted)
50g full cream sweetened condensed milk
255g plain flour / all purpose flour
1 egg yolk

360g Pineapple filling (I use homemade or store-bought)

To decorate –red heart shape sugar chips, black sesame seeds, Nibbed almonds, egg yolk

Method
1. Using an electric hand mixer, beat butter and condensed milk till light and fluffy.
2. Add in egg yolk one at a time, and beat until combine.
3. Add in flour, using a spatula to mix till become a soft and not sticky dough.
4. Roll pineapple filling into ball (8g each ) and roll pastry into ball (10g each). -latest update on 13 Jan- i reduce the weight, filling 6g and 8g pastry)
5. Flatten a piece of dough and place a piece of the roll pineapple filling in the middle. Bring the edges of the dough together and press lightly to seal. Roll it in between your palms to shape it into oval shape.
6. Place a red heart shape sugar chip on top as rooster comb. Insert nibbed almond at the centre as rooster beak. Gently place two black sesame seeds on top of beak as rooster eyes. Dip the tip of a chopstick with egg yolk, then stamp on both sides of the cheek.
7. Bake in preheated oven at 165C for 25-28mins or till golden brown at middle rack.
8. Cool completely before storing.

Just curious Sonia.. will the heart shaped sugar melt when you bake it? Thanks

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

CrazyGrr, no it will not melt, actually it became hard instead .

Hi Sonia, wondering your first steps what does it mean by cream butter and condensed milk till light? Do u just put those ingredients in a bowl then mix together ? Whisk it ? Sorry for asking stupid question ��

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

anonymous, dont worry, sorry for my writing it in detail, cream butter and condensed milk means using a electric whisk and beat these two items till pale and fluffy.

My Little Space said...

Blessings, Kristy

Clara said...

Hello hellooo.
May i know what butter is used? Salted or unsalted? And how many egg yolks are required? Cos i saw you mentioning adding yolk one at a time. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you

Aria said...

Hi Sonia, I've tried your recipe and my family loves it! I have 1 problem though, I realized that my pineapple paste is too sour and that I should have added more sugar. :( How do I fix it? It's been cooled and stored in the fridge. Can I still throw it back in the pot and add more sugar?

Aria said...

Hi Clara, Sonia uses salted butter for her recipe according to her replies in the original pineapple tart recipe post. The one yolk at a time instruction is for if you were to double the recipe. Hope this helps!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Aria, yes you can add more sugar, then let it cool in room temp again, but this time maybe 2-3days is enough.

Clara said...

Thank you so much Aria!!!
It really helps.

Aria said...

Thanks for your reply Sonia! Will give it a go. Happy CNY!

Thank you for the great recipe. Need to check with you can i prepare the dough one day earlier and keep it in the fridge and if i were to use unsalted butter, then how much salt should i put in.

Thank you.
Annie

Hi Sonia, made this today and they are adorable! Didn't see the part about using salted butter so my pineapple tarts don't taste salty at all. Maybe I should add a little salt next time? Thanks for sharing the recipe and happy chinese new year!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Annie, should be ok to keep one day (better in container and cling wrap it), if possible try to use salted butter, otherwise add about 1/4tsp salt.

Uinii said...

Thank you so much for your recipe! I had so much fun making them! They are so very cute!!

However I placed the comb perpendicular to how u placed them in your photos and put some heart shaped chips upside down under the beak for the wattles.

Me and my family are loving the pineapple tarts very much!Happy CNY!

Finally learnt to bake pineapple tarts using your recipe and they turned out perfect - just the way I love them! My parents and in-laws like them too. Thanks Sonia for your wonderful recipe and photos to show how they are done. - Jancy
