Tarts, Oh Tarts!

Tarts, you are one of my favourite melting moments ...

I look forward to each Chinese New Year where I can put these sweet melting pineapple tarts into my mouth and savouring them slowly.....before they land into the hot furnace of my stomach... sounds gross??? heheheee...

Well, yesterday I landed myself in my friend's house to watch her prepare her once-a-year "Tarts".... not just there to see but to help out, of course *wink* .. more or less...Help!! Eat!! Help EAT!! .... so it is more or less justified... hahaha....

ok now the preparation....

a closer look at the pastry on cute paper cups...

see the round yellowish thing on top??
yours truly here did that!!
(I washed my hands before I did them, OK?)

aren't they cute..... hmmm.....

the baker.. the pineapple tart-er..

into the oven.... 20 minutes..
so she said....

OK, my work was done..
I went home to watch badminton then...
I wonder how many tarts I have earned....
She asked me to go collect today...
