Pineapple tart is a popular pastry or cookie that is commonly found in Southeast Asia, especially in Malaysia and Singapore. It is typically made with a buttery, crumbly pastry crust that is filled with a sweet and tangy pineapple jam. The pineapple jam filling is usually made by cooking fresh pineapple with sugar and spices such as cinnamon and cloves until it becomes thick and jammy in texture.
Pineapple tarts are often enjoyed during festive occasions such as Chinese New Year, where they are a popular gift and are served as a snack or dessert. They can be shaped in various ways, such as round balls or flattened discs with a crisscross pattern on top, and are often decorated with a sprinkle of sugar or a small piece of candied cherry on top.
