See your Everyday Cookbook for our Butter recipe.

If the pastry becomes warm while you are working with it, it will tear easily. Place it back in the refrigerator if required. Biscuits are fragile when hot.


To make the pineapple-shaped Pineapple tarts, follow above preparation up to stage 4, rolling out the pastry to 2 – 3mm thickness. Cut pastry using a cup or glass about 12cm in diameter. With the pastry circle flat on your fingers, place a 2cm ball of pineapple filling in the centre and curl your fingers inwards to make the pastry encase the filling.

Make sure the pastry seam (opening) is on the bottom, press down on the pastry to flatten it slightly, then seal the ends and trim to make a small pineapple-shaped oval. Score the top of the tart with a sharp paring knife, 4- 5 diagonal lines in both directions for the ‘pineapple effect’ and brush the top with the egg wash. Bake and store as above.

  • Love this recipe for Chinese

    Love this recipe for Chinese New Year. I used canned pineapple and reduced the sugar of the jam to 100g. I also subbed wholemeal flour for white and flaxseed for the egg and the tarts were still amazing.  And I used a melon scooper to make the rounded balls of pineapple to sit on top of the pastry.  Sprayed with olive oil spray to  make it go brown rather than an egg wash.  Will make another batch soon with the leftover pineapple jam!.

    Thank you! Those were achieved with a pastry cutter we purchased at one of the oriental supermarkets.
