Chicken Shaped Pineapple tarts

Makes 40 Pcs | Prep time: 1 ½  hour | Cook time: 20 mins


125g salted butter, at room temperature

2 egg yolks

2 cups all-purpose flour

20g corn flour

½ cup of powdered sugar

1tbsp milk powder


600g pineapple flesh

4tbsp of sugar


Heart-shaped decorative sugar

Black sesame

Making the Pineapple Filling

Slice the pineapple flesh into pieces, then blend until puree. Cook on medium heat on a non-stick pot, and stir continuously to avoid burning.  When it almost dry, add the sugar and mix well. Continue to stir on lowest heat until the pineapple filling turns golden and sticky. Set it aside to cool, and then chill in the fridge for 30 mins.

Making the Pastry

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk one at a time and beat until well combined. Mix in all the dry ingredients (the milk powder, corn flour, and all-purpose flour) to form the pastry dough.

Combining the Filling and Pastry

Divide the pastry dough to 10g and the pineapple filling for 8g. Roll them both into balls. Use your palm to roll out the dough and flatten it. Add a pineapple ball in the middle and wrap them by folding the edges and rolling it into a ball to cover the filling.

Place them on a baking paper. Brush the top by using the egg yolk. Decor it using the heart shaped decorative sugar and black sesame to form a chicken look.
