DESSERT: Pineapple Tart and Soft Banana Cookies


hey o hey o... All this while, when it comes to desserts, I prefer making those which do not need any baking. Why? The truth is, I NEVER tried baking. surprised? Indeed, I had never tried baking, at all. But, I guess I've reached the stage where baking should no longer be a great fear. HAHA.So, today I would like to share a recipe. Actually, for both Pineapple tart and Soft Banana Cookies, they use the same dough. So, today's recipe will enable you to create any sort of cookie of your preferences using the same dough. :) It's up to your creativity to try and error. 


soft butter -I used buttercup- (1 whole cube )
a pinch of salt
2 pinches of granulated sugar
2 tbsp of custard flour
500 g of plain flour -I used cap sauh-
1 tbsp of corn starch
hard boiled egg (just take the yellow part)
an egg (whisk it) -to be brushed on the surface of the shaped dough before bake-


1. Add in all the ingredients and knead 'em thoroughly by hand. 
2. shape it into balls 
3.put any fillings or toppings you like
4.bake at 180 degree celcius for 6-8 minutes or until it is done. or simply use the automatic cookies button if your microwave happens to have got it (20 minutes)

yeah~that's it. depends on you what sort of filling or toppings you want to have. You can put any jam you want, like me, I put pineapple jam topping. tadaa~ you got pineapple tart. yeah, you can use the mould to make kuih semprit to get the normal shape of pineapple tart. as for me, simplicity is always the best. godek bulat2, leperkan and simply place the jam on top of the dough. done!
