Pooh Pineapple Tarts

Gong Xi Gong Xi!!!!! Gong Xi Fatt Chai!!! In about a week time, on 26 January 2009 will be the 1st day of Chinese Lunar New Year. On this special day, all the family members, relatives and friends will get together and enjoy meals, goodies and spent valuable times together.

Every year around 1 or 2 weeks before Chinese New Year, we will always spent some time to make some Chinese New Year cookies for the family. And Pineapple tarts is always the "MUST DO LIST" because it is one of our family favourite cookies out of all the range. This year I made Reyon's favourite pineapple tarts into Pooh Face Shape and he was very excited about it. Too bad I don't have an Ox shape cutter to do Ox shape tarts despite it is the year of Ox for 2009. Posted by Picasa

Lastly I wish all reader a Happy and Prosper Chinese New Year!!!!!!

Chinese New Year Goodies

Hello!!! Happy New Year to all my Dear readers and friends. It had being a month or so since my last post here. As I am really busy with work and taking care of Reyon, usually I have much spare time to try out new Bakes or doing a post entry. But since Chinese New Year is around the corner, I would like to squeeze some time off to bake some goodies for my family and relatives.

At first I guess since I didn't stock up the necessary ingredients in time I would have a hard time sourcing around for them which I might not be able to make those goodies that I plan for. But our God is good, He knows what you want and He always provide the best for us. Luckily I managed to find all the necessary ingredients just in time to make all these goodies. As you see, I had made 3 different types of pineapple tarts which represent 3 different good meaning for New Year. I personally prefer the pineapple puffs most because of it juicy filling and wonderful pastry and for decoration and New Year purpose I had also topped it with some edible Gold Foil to make it more delicacy.

Other than pineapple puffs, I also made these Yam Puffs from the yam paste(Orr Nee) that I have. And this is really very edicting and smooth and really melts in your mouth. I love the taste of the yam paste with the pastry. And those who loves to eat Orr Nee will definely loves this special treat.

This is my very first time making Almond Cookies after seeing and hearing all the good feedbacks about this Chinese New Year cookies. So since I had some ground almond left from making Macarons, I decided to give it a try. And I must confess that it really did not disappoint me. The texture, fragrant and taste are just nice like what I prefer. Posted by Picasa

Pineapple Tarts

It's a few more weeks before Chinese New Year and you can easily find lot of New Year Cookies all around Singapore. Out of those cookies, Pineapple Tart is one of the most famous one among all. And since I have a packet of pineapple paste sitting in the fridge, I decided to do a test run on this recipe before making them in batches for friends and relatives.

This recipe is from one of the mum's in M4M website but I modify the ingredients a bit to suits our preference. The pineapple tart is more towards the "melt in mouth" version which is more buttery and melt instantly when put into your mouth.
