Ingredients for homemade pineapple tarts
- 1kg pineapple chunks
- 100 grams granulated sugar
- 200 grams all-purpose flour
- 30 grams custard flour
- 120 grams unsalted butter
- 25 grams icing sugar
- 2 tablespoons powdered milk
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pineapple jam filling
Just like what we mentioned earlier, the first step that you have to do is to make your pineapple jam. Making your own pineapple jam is really a great part of making pineapple tarts since you can easily adjust the taste to your liking.
First step. When choosing your pineapples, make sure that they are not too ripe since ripe pineapples would tend to be watery. Watery pineapples would make it harder to cooks so look for pineapples that are a bit on the green side. If you have a blender, you can easily blend the pineapples into a rich pulp, while making sure that they are not pureed. You won’t want them to reach a juice-like consistency. When blending your pineapples, put in a few chunks at a time to ensure that there won’t be big pieces missed out.
Second step. After this, pour the blended pineapple into a wide pot then add sugar. Place the mixture on medium heat while constantly stirring to prevent the sugar from burning. Continue doing so until the liquid evaporates from the mixture. Cooking time would often range from 20 to 30 minutes. Once the liquid has fully evaporated, set the pot aside and let it cool.
Third step. Once the jam has cooled, shape them to 1 inch logs about the size of your thumb. Place them neatly on a plate, making sure that there is enough space in between to avoid having them sticking together. Once done, place a cling film plastic wrap on top to prevent the jam logs from drying. Keep refrigerated.
Pineapple tart dough
After you have made your pineapple jam, it is now time to whip up the cookies that would enclose your pineapple jam. Making your own cookies is also a fun way where you can have kids join in on making their own tart shapes.
First step. Ina huge bowl, sift together the flour and custard powder them mix well.
Second step. On a separate bowl, put in together your butter and icing sugar then blend well. Afterwards, put in your vanilla extract and egg yolk. Once your liquid ingredients have been mixed evenly, add in your flour mixture then mix well. After they have mixed well, shape it into a ball then cover with cling wrap while preparing your other cookie ingredient.
Third step. Make sure that you have a good flat surface where you can work on your dough and flour the surface generously. It would help to work with your dough into parts instead of rolling the dough all at once since it tends to be sticky. With your rolling pin, roll the dough until you get a nice 5mm thickness. If you have a dough presser, then all you have to do is put a small amount of dough in it then press according to instructions.
Putting them together
Now that you are done prepping your jam and done, it’s time to put them together to create your own homemade pineapple tarts!
First step. For this part, all you have to do is place a jam long and wrap the dough around it, making sure that the jam is covered nicely.
Second step. Line the tarts in a baking sheet while making sure that they are evenly spaced. Brush the top of the tarts with egg yolk then bake at 345 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes. Check the tarts from time to time until they reach a nice golden brown color.
Once the pineapple tarts have done baking, all you have to do is to let it cool and you can serve it to your friends or family for a healthy and delicious snack!
