Makes about 150 tarts

Pineapple jam:
2 medium-size pineapples, grated
300g sugar
Some cinnamon and star arise (optional)

1. Cook grated pineapple in a pot with sugar for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
2. Cook until the pineapple jam starts to leave the sides of the pot. Remove from stove and set aside to cool.
3. Roll jam into small balls, as shown in Pic. 1.

Tart pastry:
300g butter
130g margarine
100g icing sugar
80g milk powder
1 egg
600g cake/superfine flour
30g custard powder

1. Preheat oven at 170-180 deg C.
2. Cream butter and margarine in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
3. Add egg and beat well.
4. Sift icing sugar, milk powder, flour and custard powder into the mixture. Fold to incorporate all ingredients to form a smooth pastry dough.

For pineapple rolls:
1. Place some pastry dough into mould. Using your thumbs, pipe dough of about 5cm in length. Place a jam ball on it and roll the pastry up to enclose the jam (Pic. 5).
2. Brush tarts with egg wash. Bake in a greased, lined baking tin (Pic. 6) for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
3. Cool the tarts on wire rack.

1. Amount of sugar is for guidance only. Please adjust this amount according to size and sweetness of your pineapples.
2. For the preparation of pineapple jam, what I did was cook the jam a day before I wanted to make the tarts. Set the jam aside to cool and then refrigerated the jam overnight. I found the jam was much easier to handle and roll (not too sticky) the next day
