Nonya Pineapple Tarts 娘惹黄梨塔

AHHHHHHHH!!! I am so happy that i can actually bake!!! =D I don’t know what got into me to make me wanna bake pineapple tarts, it must have been the influence of the chinese new year goodies! But whatevr it is, im glad i gave it a shot cause now i finally know that i can bake!! I’m ADDICTED to baking!!!!

I saw that they were selling ready-made pineapple paste, so my mommy asked me to use that. She was pretty skepyical about me making it when i was in the “anything, anyhow” experimenting mood. Anyways,  I was thinking that since i already decided to bake, why not try my best to make everything myself. Furthermore, the super pale yellow colour of the ready-made paste really looks awful. So, i bagged 2 honey pineapples home and got my mom to skin it for me.

But anyways, i know the result is not pretty, but really, everyone who tried says it super delicious!!! I think after i improve on the outlook, i can really take orders for chinese new year already! Foe now, my mommy has ordered form me already =DDD
