Pineapple tarts are small pastries filled with pineapple jam. They are commonly eaten in different parts of Asia: Malaysia , Singapore, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
They are made with a crumbly pastry base and a paste made with pineapple cooked and caramelized in sugar and spices.

There are several shapes of these biscuits depending on the country: roll, dumpling, tart…But the recipe for these biscuits does not change so feel free to be creative on the shapes!
