Pineapple Tart is one of the most popular cookies or sweet snacks during Chinese New Year. It is believed that eating this sweet snack will bring you good luck and prosperity the whole year through. Taiwanese Pineapple Shortcake 台式凤梨酥 (we call it Pineapple tart here) is also one of my favourite sweet snacks. Whenever I visit Taiwan, my friends or relatives will definitely give me boxes of Pineapple Shortcakes to bring home. For this year, I decided to make my own Pineapple shortcake based on Joceline's recipe. Since I don't have condensed milk on hand, I substituted with honey instead. The end result is not bad, I just can't wait to try a piece when it is still warm. The outer skin of the shortcake is not very sweet and it is crumbly, melt in your mouth texture. If you like this kind of short pastry, you can make it as a gift for your loved ones for the coming Chinese New Year which falls on 31st January this year.
