Pineapple Tarts, a classic Chinese New Year cookies that everyone loves!

Considered a "festive cookie", pineapple tarts are usually consumed during the Chinese New Year season. While pineapple tarts are usually eaten during the Chinese New Year, they are sold all year round by commercial bakeries and by souvenir stores serving tourists.

For the whole year without failure, i will bake a pineapple tarts according to the order for any season especially during Hari Raya, Chinese New Year and Christmas. Making pineapple tart is not that easy as some of you think. Even the process of making pineapple jam is just a breeze. Starts from peeling pineapple, painstakingly gouge out the eyes from the fruit, grated and finally spend four to five hours stirring over the hot stove until the pineapple mixture changed color from bright yellow to golden brownish.
So here i am sharing with you a few picture for the whole process of making pineapple tarts with homemade pineapple jam!

This is the beginning..
