Mini Pineapple Jam Tarts

Pineapple Tarts usually come in two basic forms, open faced or ball shape. 

For this recipe, I used tartlet moulds to make mini pineapple tarts,  both covered and open faced.

I find that you can add more pineapple jam by using the tartlet mould compared to the traditional method.
