Rum Pineapple Tarts 凤梨酥


This is another special recipe from my good friend, Doris.
 Pineapple tarts is the most representative snack of the festive CNY season, so if I can only bake one item, that will definitely be pineapple tarts Haha!

Pineapple tart is so popular because it sounds like “Ong Lai” in hokkien.   That’s the reason why it is a must have in all household during Chinese New Year.  
Baking pineapple tarts for Chinese New Year has become yearly affair ever since I picked up baking. Every year, I will try to bake different recipe of Pineapple Tarts and I like them all.  You can find it here, here and here.
I love baking with friend.  This year, I was so grateful that Doris shared her recipes and we got to bake together.  I really had a great time baking with her.

300g         Plain flour
50g          Milk powder
30g          Sugar
