Learning CNY baking from the master : Part 1

February 18, 2011

I’ve always been wanting to bake my own Chinese New Year goodies and this year, so I was really happy when Sushi’s mum was willing to teach me her family recipes and the traditional ways for making CNY goodies! And I had 2 consecutive  late night lessons at her house a week before Chinese New Year so there would be time for me to go home and make my own batches! In this first lesson, she taught me how to make pineapple tarts.

I had some difficulties with the bases because the dough was really soft but a couple of tips from the master (Sushi’s mum) and a couple more trial and errors, I mastered the technique!

The huge (rather deformed) pineapple tart you see in the photo was specially made for Sushi!
