Pineapple Jam Tartlet

Pineapple Jam Tartlet

Pineapple Tarts usually come in two basic forms, open faced or round shape. Here I have adapted the popular egg tart recipe by replacing the egg custard with pineapple jam. I find that you can add more of the yummy pineapple jam by using the tartlet mould. I used the smaller tartlet moulds here but you could even use the larger moulds, if you wish.
