Melt-in-your-mouth Pork Floss Chinese Cookies

"Mmm...."

This is all that my son and I can say while enjoying mouthful of these savoury cookies melting in our mouths. As the buttery melty bits of the cookies dissolved in our mouths, we were left with sweet salty nutty pork-floss-roasted-sesame-seeds bits to chew... OMG! This is so gastronomic!!!

When my son and I were going "Mmm... Mmm..." with these cookies in the kitchen, my curious husband came along and asked for the cookies.

"Here you go" as I tossed one cookie into his mouth and instantly, it was "Mmm... Mmm..."!!!

To me, these pork floss cookies are the Chinese savoury kind of melting moments!!! What else can I say... Must try! Must try!!!

My BEST Melt-in-your-mouth Open Faced Pineapple Tarts - It's easy to bake and sturdy to handle too!

I love pineapple tarts!!! Do you?

I wouldn't dare to say that I'm a pineapple tart expert but I dare to say that I do know my pineapple tarts because I really love love love them!!!

After years and years of my pineapple tarts research at here (2011), here (2012), here (2012), here (2013), here (2014), here (2015), here (2016) and here (the latest 2017), I have finally derived the best pineapple tart recipes that I want.

Due to this reason, many readers have gained confidence in me and asked me for recipes that makes pineapple tarts that they want... like pineapple tarts that are crispy, crunchy, less buttery and etc etc etc? Some readers also asked if they can use one recipe to make all sorts of pineapple tarts like the open faced ones, enclosed ones and etc etc etc. Some readers also asked me what went wrong when their pastry dough turn out to be not as good as they expected... like too dry, too soft, too crumbly, not easy to roll and etc etc etc. Hmmm...


Please don't get me wrong. I really appreciate the fact that many readers have actually read my blog and tried my recipes. Thank you!!!!! I really want to help everybody but my hands are tied with overwhelming requests and I hope that you can understand.

Can I say something for myself? I have tried my best to illustrate all that I know in all my pineapple tarts posts. I don't write these blog posts for money or any personal gains. I just want to share my prized recipes purely out of good will. So pleaseeeeeee read my posts thoroughly! Please try baking the recipes and see if you like these pineapple tarts. If you tried and like the recipes, YAY!!! I'm happy for you! If you tried and don't like the recipes, please move on... I hope that you find another better recipe. Ok?

Back to the question... Can we use one recipe to make all sorts of pineapple tarts like the open faced ones, enclosed ones and etc etc etc? YES! ... but only a FEW recipes and they are NOT the best because the best recipes are those that are specifically designed to bake a specific sort of pineapple tarts!!! In another words, if you are after the BEST, please do not expect it to be an all purpose recipe.

Hence, if you are after an easy and sturdy melt-in-your-mouth open faced pineapple tart recipe, I have the best recipe for you and you can find it in the book, Bake and Celebrate published by Marshall Cavendish. 
Bake and Celebrate is selling now in major book shops in Singapore and Malaysia.
