This year, I'm breaking away from my Hari Raya tradition of using the same recipe for my Pineapple Tarts. Instead, I used a recipe I got from a weekend baking class that used mainly rice flour & a lesser portion of plain flour. There were 3 ticks on the recipe (I normally do that after tasting the product.), implying that the recipe is a good one. However, I decided to still retain the lotus shape.
Rice Flour Pineapple Tarts
Recipe by Nurul Imah.
250g butter (softened) - I added a bit more as my dough was quite dry.
30g sweetened condensed milk
4 egg yolk
20g powder sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp butter oil essence (I used vanilla paste.)
*20g milk powder
*260g rice flour
*120g plain flour
- Combine butter, condensed milk, egg yolk, sugar, salt & butter oil in a mixing bowl & mix until well blended.
- Add flour & mix thoroughly until a dough is formed. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
- Roll out dough & cut out using cookie cutter. Fill in with pineapple filling. (I formed into lotus shape. Refer here for steps to form the lotus flower.)
- Bake for 30-40 minutes at 140 deg C.
