Ok ... gift giving is a bitch but every now and then I strike gold and this year's Christmas and Birthday hit paydirt. Unfortunately M's medical practitioner has thrown us some shade and his Kenwood Patissier and shiny new marble slab have become the white good temptations of Job.
But everything in moderation right? Well there are exceptions, and Pineapple Tarts are one.
For CNY 2012, M tried his hand at making Pineapple tarts from scratch, pastry, jam and all.
It was a chance to give M's christmas present a full work out.
And I must say the end result was both suitably festive and pretty spot on in the flavour and texture stakes.
