Additional Info

  • Ingredients
    For the pastry
    250gSCS® Salted Butter
    500gSunshine Plain Flour (sifted & more for dusting)
    100gSIS Icing Sugar
    1Egg yolk
    1 tspVanilla essence
    Pinch of salt
    ¼ tspBaking soda
    400gSunshine Plain Flour
    100gCoconut sprinkles
    1 tbspCold milk
    For the filling
    2Large pineapples (about 1kg each)
    200gSIS Fine Grain White Sugar
    1Cinnamon stick
  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
    2. Make the dough - Cream butter and icing sugar until pale. Gradually add the egg yolk, vanilla essence, salt, baking soda and cold milk. Fold sifted flour into the mixture and mix until the dough just comes together. Wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.
    3. Make the Pineapple filling (while the dough chills) - Coarsely grate the pineapple and drain off excess juice. Place the pineapple in a heavy bottomed pot and add sugar and spices. Bring to a boil and cook over low fire, stirring regularly, for 1 hour or until the filling has thickened. Allow filling to cool and store in the fridge until ready to use.
    4. Dust the working surface with flour and roll out the pastry to about 0.5cm thick. Use a pineapple tart cookie cutter to cut out each piece of dough. Arrange them on a lined baking tray and chill the cookie dough pieces for 15-20 mins.
    5. Assemble the Golden Pillows - Divide the pineapple filling into 10-12g portions. Shape each portion into a ball and place in the middle of each piece of cookie dough. Cover pineapple filling with dough; roll lightly to form mini pillows.
    6. Bake pillow tarts for 25mins, rotating tray halfway through the baking time to evenly cook tarts.
    7. Allow pineapple tarts to cool before dusting with coconut sprinkles. Store in airtight containers.

Baking Tips

  • Cleanly pour out oil and syrup

    Rinse your measuring cup in hot water before using syrup, oil, etc. It will pour out cleanly and not stick to the cup.
