I haven’t updated this blog for the longest time! I went through a lot of changes in my life for the past 2 years, and thus blogging was like a past for me. I used to own a lot of blogs in different niches, and blogging was both a passion and a way of making extra income. However, blogging has been slowly fading away and I have come to a point if I should keep this blog. LOL!
On top of that, it’s quite challenging being a single mom with a full time job. With my limited free time, I have to allocate well for my kids, myself, my career and a new relationship. In short, 24 hours is not enough.
Anyway, I decided to bake some Chinese New Year goodies this year for friends and family, including my daughter’s classmates and teachers. Pineapple tarts are our favorite and first to be baked for CNY this year. Since 2015 is the year of Goat, I thought of shaping the tarts as goats, besides making piggies, rose tarts and oranges. I used the same pineapple tart recipe, but shaped the goats as shown below:
Flatten the pastry dough and wrap the pineapple paste in it, and gently shape them into an oval.
So, here’s what we got after 20 minutes of baking:
I shaped some piggies and Mandarin oranges too since they look pretty cute to be given away as goodies.
Happy baking for Chinese New Year peeps!
