  9. Hi Ms B,

    Happy CNY! Being away from home (I mean Singapore), I know that CNY is never the same... but I reckon with all the goodies that you have baked, your CNY at Belgium must have been good for you.

    You are right... my pineapple tart investigation has shown that Mandy's recipe is the best out of the three recipes :D


    1. Hi B,

      Nice to have you analyze lots of pineapple tarts baking with me. We sure love our pineapple tarts... LOL!

      You are right that yours are the enclosed ones and so they are much more easier to handle. I baked my open-faced ones for just 13 mins and I reckon our baking times vary due to their difference in sizes and our ovens. I reckon that baking time is critical for open-faced pineapple tart baking as my oven is fan forced which can be over-bake food easily with its high heat and so 13 mins is the optimal timing for me.

      Yes that I did tried Wendy's recipe ( Her recipe is good but I still prefer Little Teochew and Mandy's recipe. I'm surprised too that either cream cheese or milk powder can't enhance the melt-y taste of these tarts further. Next, I'm curious to try Sonia's and Cook.Bake.Love's recipes. These two recipes especially Sonia's one are very well-reviewed but all I need now is to find time and pineapples to bake more tarts again...
