Pineapple tarts after note

I've waited for a few days to try my pineapple tarts again. Pauline mentioned that the tarts will taste better after a few days when the jam finally "integrate" with the pastry. They do taste better than when I first bake them, but still no "melt-in-the-mouth" feel.

I've used up the remaining pastry and most of the jam in my fridge on Thursday. Made the second batch to bring to my in-laws tomorrow. This time round I bake them a little more golden (since I know they'll probably soften after a few days).



I'm still in search for a real melt-in-the-mouth pastry. I'll probably have to wait till next year as I won't be making any more pineapple tarts this CNY.

Mood: lethargic

Thanks hui hiong! I do not know if I will be making more pineapple tarts this year coz I've run out of people to give to! Lol.... And I've been down with sore throat for a few days after all these taste-testing.

I hope yours will be successful. Do update me, ok?
