These pineapple tarts are so fragile, crispy and light with the addition of Nestum cereals. It has a rough crispness, savoury crust and sweet filling. Nice but must handle with care cos' it is very crumbly.
I used a wooden pineapple design mooncake mould to shape these tarts.
Recipe adapted from [modified]
[makes 16 pieces]
150 gm plain flour
15 gm icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt
50 gm Nestum original
130 gm butter
1 egg yolk
250 gm ready-bought pineapple paste/jam
  1. Sift flour, add in salt, stir in Nestum and set aside.
  2. Beat soft butter with sugar until light before adding egg yolk.  Mix thoroughly.
  3. Fold in the dry ingredients [flour/salt/Nestum] and mix to form a firm dough.
  4. Lightly dust flour into the insides of some traditional wooden moulds.  Pinch off a small ball of pastry about the size of a small lime [size depends on the size of the mould].
  5. Roll pastry into a ball and flatten. Fill the centre with a ball of pineapple paste and pinch to enclose.
  6. Place this within the cavity of the wooden mould, press gently to mould. Gently tap the mould to dislodge the pastry. Finish making the remaining and arrange neatly on a baking tray.
  7. Bake pineapple pastries in a preheated oven at 160 degrees C for about 20 minutes.
  8. When they are crisp and lightly coloured, take them out and cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.

Kimmy, I like the pineapple shape. Very ong! I imagine that it would be extra fragrant with Nestum. I always like cookies with Nestum.

Hi Karen, the original recipe uses the gold fish shape mooncake mould. Got the idea from there, lah.

Hi Soke Hah, these are really so fragile that I keep telling my family to be 'careful' when eating them, lest they spill the crust all over. Anyway, these are all finished. My worries are over.
