Pineapple Tart

2008 - Pineapple Tart, In Indonesia, they call this "Nastar" - Seriously melt in your mouth! Soft and buttery! You want to have it more until you finish it all!

This recipe was given by my mother in-law and I guess this is the best pineapple tart I have ever had. Its super soft and smooth. 

All you need to have just two fresh pineapple, flour, butter, sugar, egg yolks and it takes 8 hours to complete the whole process with making the pineapple filling from scratch is not easy.  Its hell lots of works and long hours, Im lucky to have my sister to help me. We manage to produced 11 containers of pineapple tart 23pieces each box for sell. All sold!

This site update today 10.10.2013, I got the recipe from my MIL finally!! i can post here for you all.  I have lost it when im too busy making it many years ago!

She gave me this recipe just 3 months ago.  What i can remember definitely a little different from what she gave me years ago.  Becuase i didn't use Roombutter, only with Margarine ( blue band brand ) for the pastry.  By the way, making pineapple tarts the first thing what you need to prepare is the Pineapple Fillings / Pineapple Jam. I make my Pineapple Fillings from scratch, Recipe is included. 

Anyway, i hope you all find this recipe easy and i am happy to share. Happy Baking everyone!!
