Pineapple Crumble Tarts...


An Aunt from New York visited the Philippines and shew was the same person who played a significant role during those hard times back in the states. Pineapple Crumble Tart is my local version of apple pie since I know she is used to eating the famous american pie. For 2008, this tart is a perfect pastry ensemble to pay tribute to her greatness and that she enjoys our very own pineapple fruit. The base is made of a flaky and light shortcrust, filled with lime infused chunky pinapple cream and finally topped with graham-butter crumble. I reduced the amount of sugar for the topping to give highlight to the richness and tartness of the filling. Mint leaves are not available however my passionfruit tree has great leaves to garnish the dessert. To you Aunt. B... thanks for coming over and together with my son, we'll surely visit you ...
