Ready to bake – no egg glaze for this batch

Method:

Cream butter, icing sugar and egg yolk together until creamy. Do not over beat! About a minute is fine, if butter still firm maybe 2 minutes.

Add all the flour and mixed into a soft rollable dough.  If still too soft, add a teaspoonful of plain flour at a time until you can handle it.

Roll out and cut dough with your favourite tart press set. Place on silicon or parchment paper lined baking sheet and place a ball of pineapple jam on top of each cookie.

Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 18-20 minutest (depending on the thickness of your cookies) or until golden brown.

Remove and cool completely before storing in air tight containers.

Bottom golden brown, done!

Pineapple Jam:

250g grated pineapple (try to buy those unripe ones; they have less juice)

125g sugar

Method:

Cook pineapple in a wok or sauce pan until boiling.  Continue to boil, stirring ocassionally until 80% of the juice is dried.

Add sugar and continue cooking, stirring more often as the jam starts to dry and thickens.

Cool completely (preferably overnight in the fridge) before rolling into balls. It is now ready to use.
