Chinese New Year Goodies. Part 2: Pineapple-jam Tarts

Pineapple tarts have been my favourite cookies since I was young. My house is always filled with loads of pineapple-jam tarts during Chinese New Year as my sister, sister-in-law and my aunt enjoy making them for every Chinese New Year. My sister-in-law makes them for sale too but similar to her layered cakes, you need to make very early booking to get on hold of her pineapple-jam tarts.

There are basically two types of pineapple tarts available at my house. I prefer the type with exposed pineapple jam because I can taste the jam without having to bite into it. The other type has the pineapple jam wrapped inside the pastry for those who likes to have the mixed taste of pastry and pineapple jam.

The exposed pineapple jam is so tempting!

The almost crystallized pineapple jam.

You don't know what's inside.

They are in fact filled with pineapple jam.

You can only taste the pineapple jam after biting into the pastry.

They are so yummy!

Hi Terri, there was no complicated lighting set up in taking these photos. I rely solely on the natural side light coming through a window of the dining room with the fluorescent light turned on. My aperture was set to f/8 to get enough depth-of-field and the shutter speed went down to 3~4 seconds some time, so a tripod is inevitable. There were taken with my back-up point-and-shoot camera, the Canon PowerShot G7.
