  • 600g Pineapple Paste
  • 500g Hong Kong Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Pink Salt
  • 30g Icing Sugar
  • 375g Ammerlander Unsalted Butter
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2 Egg Yolks (Not inclusive in the kit)
  • 2/3 Egg White


  • 2-3 Egg yolks



  • Sift the Hong Kong flour. Then add in the pink salt and icing sugar and mix well.
  • Cut the cold butter into cubes, then use a dough blender or your fingers to blend the butter into the dough until it achieves a breadcrumb-like consistency.
  • Add the vanilla essence and eggs (2 egg yolks and 2/3 egg white), and use your fingers to gently bring the dough together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  • Divide the dough into 2 batches. Place each batch in a separate bag, then flatten it and chill it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, weigh out and roll the pineapple jam into balls of about 6g each.


  • Preheat oven to 170°C, then roll out the 1st batch of dough to about 0.5cm thickness on a well floured surface. Ensure that the rolling pin is well floured as well. 
  • Cut out the dough using a pineapple tart cookie cutter. First, press firmly on the outer cookie cutter to cut the shape out. Then press down on the inner mould to get a nice deep impression. Flour the cookie cutter before every use. Place the cut out cookies on a greased baking tray.
  • Add 3 egg yolks into a bowl and beat it. Then brush egg wash over the surface of each tart using a soft bristled brush.
  • Bake batch #1 tarts for 5 minutes at 170°C on the middle lower rack of the oven. Meanwhile, work on batch #2.
  • After 5 minutes, place the pineapple jam balls on the batch #1 tarts, pressing down gently to remove any air pockets. Then bake for another 10 minutes at 170°C.
  • Take out batch #1 to cool, and place batch #2 in oven to bake as per instructions above. Allow cookies to cool completely on a cooling rack before storing in an airtight container.
