Cookies : Pineapple Rolls 黄梨卷

Cookies : Pineapple Rolls 黄梨卷

Recipe source :  Pineapple jam - Doris Choo

Pineapple tarts are ever popular with my children. No matter how much I made they would all disappear pretty fast. In fact these pineapple tarts seldom make it to the first day of the Chinese New Year! Sometimes I just have to resort to hiding a jar or two of these cookies just so that I have some pineapple tarts to serve to our guests during the Chinese New Year!

Last year, my pineapple tarts were made into pineapple shapes using a cookie cutter. The pastry for last year's pineapple tarts was not as pliable and I cannot use that recipe to make the dough into rolls. Today I shall make pineapple rolls using a brand new pump which I bought recently. And this pump comes complete with a recipe at the back of the package. So this saves me time to google for more recipes. 

Pineapple rolls are comparatively easier to make because I do not have to shape the pineapple jam into rounds and then decorate strips of dough atop the pineapple jam. I remember this process took up much of my time.  With this pump, All I need to do is to just squeeze out the dough into strips and placed some pineapple jam in the centre and just roll it up. It's so much more convenient!
