    Has anyone tried making (or even eating) pineapple tarts? I make them here all the time and they taste great. We use our pastry dough, roll them out into small circles, place some pineapple jam in the center (pre-made with some sugar) and then fold them neatly into triangles. When they're cooled we add some yellow food colouring on the top to add some colour.

    I loved to eat pineapple tarts in breakfast.

    A local restaurant here had a breakfast menu that included them, and I really like them since.

    However never thought of baking some the way you say, in fact I though they had a degree of difficulty but sound that simple that I will try them this weekend :)

    Me too, they taste great with tea (I'm not a coffee person). I've actually never had them in a restaurant before, the recipe that I use is basically one that is past down in my family. It's not difficult at all; unless of course you want them to be perfect triangles, with that being said, take all the time in the world! Traditionally they're yellow in my culture, but I like them blue! :cool:

    They taste really good and they're not that hard to make; you should definitely give them a try. Of course, you can make the shape in any way that you like, but my tradition is to do triangular tarts. :) They look something like this, but some people use a fork to press the sides in:

    I like sharing recipes with friends and I shared this with a friend. She likes this recipe and said she was going to make some and bring some to work for me to try.

    Thank you all for acknowledging this amazing recipe. I hope that you all get a chance to try it and that they turn out as best to your liking as possible.

    Did she? I hope she does indeed bring you some, give me a heads up if you liked it or not. I'm curious. :)

    Oh they were delicious. She loved them as well and loved the recipe. I can't wait to make my own. I think I will make some for Thanksgiving to go with the other desserts we are having. I hope my family likes them as much as I did. That is a great recipe and thanks again for sharing it.

    My mom use to buy these from our local bakery when I was growing up. They are really tasty and I like to eat them with milk. Some people think that it is a little weird but it just blends well.

    Awesome! I'm glad that you both enjoyed them. I hope that your family likes them as well. You're welcome, it's a thrill sharing something like this.

    @TheViper I've never had it with milk before, I usually just take it with tea, maybe I'll try it with milk next time we make them. :)
