A Paws-perous goodie for the Chinese New Year! The Fortune Dog Pineapple Tart melts in your mouth and is fuss-free to make. In this recipe, no chilling of the dough is required hence no time wasted! The dough doesn’t stick to your hands even without chilling.
It’s our first time preparing the bake with a food processor, and to our surprise, it works fantastically! It grates the pineapple in a jiffy and the mixes the dough finely as well. Perks are less cleaning and less space required for the preparation. This food processor can easily make 120 pineapple tarts – a good enough quantity for a family of 5 and to entertain guests as well.
Only cinnamon and sugar is required. Let the pineapple be the star and add cinnamon to enhance the fragrance as well as the depth to the flavour. Skip the pre-made paste, this is so easy to make, and we are sure that you will receive loads of praise for this recipe.
Tip: Stick the chocolate chip (nose) into the dough as deep as possible to prevent it from sticking on the wall of the container when packed.
It’s still not too late to bake these for Chinese New Year. Have fun baking!
