  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, optional

Egg Wash:

  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp water, cold water

    Instructions

    • Roll pineapple paste into balls.
      To make the pineapple tarts, first roll the pineapple filling/paste into balls, about 5 gram each. This can be done one day before making the tarts.
    • Cut cold butter straight from the refrigerator into cubes and leave to chill in the refrigerator until ready to be used.
    • Rose Pineapple Tarts Recipe - mix
      Add sifted all-purpose flour, cornflour and icing sugar into a large mixing bowl.
    • Add green tea powder into flour.
      Then add in green tea powder and mix well to combine. You can add more if you prefer a stronger flavour.
    • Add in cold butter.
      Next, add in the chilled butter cubes.
    • Cut butter into flour.
      Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
    • Rose Pineapple Tarts Recipe - beat together egg mixture
      Then beat together the egg yolks, cold water and vanilla extract.
    • Add in egg mixture.
      Add the cold egg mixture into the flour mixture.
    • Form into dough.
      Using your fingertips or the tips of a fork, gently gather all the butter crumbs into one large dough ball. Be sure NOT to knead the dough so that the dough remains crumbly.
    • Form into dough and refrigerate.
      Cover with cling wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. And we're ready to make the pineapple tarts.
    • Form into small balls.
      To make the tarts, first roll the chilled dough into balls, about 10 gram each.
    • Wrap jam balls inside.
      Then flatten and place the pineapple jam ball in the centre of each of the flattened dough.
    • Form into ball again.
      Bring the edges of the dough together and press lightly to seal. Then roll it in between your palms to shape it into a ball.
    • Crimp the surface.
      Using a plastic crimper, crimp the rolled tart. (Watch my video on how to crimp the tarts)
    • Arrange on baking sheet.
      Continue to roll and crimp for the rest of the rolled dough balls. Then arrange the pineapple tarts on a baking tray.
    • Rose Pineapple Tarts Recipe - egg wash
      Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the egg yolk and water together for the glaze. Be sure to strain the egg wash through a sifter to remove any parts of the egg that didn't incorporate.
    • Egg wash the pineapple tarts.
      Egg wash the crimped pineapple tarts.
    • Preheat oven.
      Meanwhile preheat oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F),
    • Bake in preheated oven.
      Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the pineapple tarts are cooked through.
    • Cool baking sheet on rack.
      Once baked, remove the baking sheet to cool on wire rack for about 10 minutes. The pineapple tarts are very soft when hot so let it cool down before transferring them.
    • Cool pineapple tarts completely.
      Then transfer the baked pineapple tarts to cool completely on wire rack before storing in airtight containers.
    • Green Tea Pineapple Tarts
      Dig in and let these scrumptious green tea infused pineapple tarts melt in your mouth. As always, ENJOY!

Enjoy!

Notes

Try to use good quality matcha powder as they will give you the best flavour and beautiful green colour.
If you use unsalted butter, do add 1/4 teaspoon salt together with the flour.
Roll the pineapple filling a day before baking so that it will be easier and faster to make the tarts.
The amount of pineapple filling can be adjusted according to own preference.
Be sure to cool the pineapple tarts completely before storing to avoid the tarts from becoming mouldy.
