  1. I always prefer open-faced pineapple tarts cos there is more filling to pastry. That said, it also depends on the quality of the source. I actually like a more fibrous less sweet pineapple filling.

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for your recipe…

    May I know with the receipe, how many pineapple tarts can it yield?

  3. hi I would like to know if it is alright to replace the cold small cubes butter with just non-refrigerated margarine? Will it make a difference in the pastry? Thanks.

  4. hi may I know if I can substitute the butter with margarine? Will it make a difference in the pastry?

    • I have not substituted butter with margarine before for this recipe (in fact I do not use margarine at all in my kitchen), so I am not sure how the substitution will turn out. If you do try out, let us know how it goes. Generally the higher fat content in butter is more beneficial for a recipe like pineapple tart in terms of a more crumbly and buttery pastry.

  5. Where do you buy the pineapple fillings from Kwong Cheong Thye? Thanks.

  7. Hi,
    I’m searching for open faced pineapple tart and found your receipe easy to follow. And I have baked it over the last weekend. Taste is really good but I find it on the sweet side. Then I realised your receipe calls for 40g icing sugar. Does it make a difference on the pastry if the amount of sugar is reduced?

  8. Its down fire to used to bake the pineapple tart
