Pineapple Tarts | Tart Nenas

Pineapple tarts are such a Malay tradition for Raya(Eid). One of the best biskut raya (Eid cookies)!

You can make them in a few different shapes so I went with  the flower and the ‘pineapple’ shape tarts. The flower was made using a tart cutter and the pineapple was done by hand, and the pattern was made using scissors (yes really!)

So proud of my little pineapple tarts! LOL

Adapted from Siti Emel


265g butter, room temperature**
2 tbsp icing sugar, sifted**
1 tbsp vanilla essence**
a pinch of salt**
1 drop of yellow food colour**

2 egg yolks ##
1 egg white##

2 tbsp corn flour ~
500grams plain flour, sifted ~


1. Beat/mix all ingredients ** in a mixer for 5 mins. I use a food processor

2. Add ingredients ## then mix again for another 5 mins

3. Add ingredients ~ then knead dough (in my food processor)

4. Set aside for 30mins. Then start making your tarts with the filling (recipe below)

5. Preheat oven at 160C for 20mins first

6. Then bake for 20mins!




500grams  grated pineapple (juice drained)
250grams sugar
1 screwpine leaf (daun pandan)
2 drops orange food colouring

1. Cut pineapple and using a food processor, process till it becomes fine. Then drain the juice.

2. In a pot, combine all the ingredients and cook on a low to medium heat until it reduces and becomes like a jam consistency.

3. Let it cool before assembling the tarts

FREE Eid Money Envelopes


Eid Money Envelopes/Packet

*You may download this printable at the end of this post*

Make your Eid gifting nicer by giving out your money in Eid money envelopes. It makes a nice surprise for the recipient to receive it, anxiously knowing how much is inside. I still remember during raya (eid), my sister and I would get heaps of duit raya (money envelopes) from relatives; but we were too shy to ‘check’ it publicly, so we’d collect them all and store them in our bags. As soon as we sat in the car, we’d start opening and counting LOL.

My 2015 eid theme is Geo scandi, and they come in 2 cute designs. If you prefer a more generic colour theme to suit both genders, I have them in my Confetti Collection or in my Golden Marrakesh Collection

They fit any bill perfectly, as shown :)

Even little kids will enjoy them!

This, money envelope along with your money inside, could potentially brighten up a little child on their Eid day :)

Eid Mubarak Gift Tags

Its only a week away until Eid 2015, how time flies Subhanallah! Usually in the last week of Eid, I am tremendously busy baking, shopping, wrapping, cooking, sewing, decorating and a million other things we, as Muslim mums do to make Eid a very special day for our family.

I am a bit obsessed about gift giving and making it look presentable. This year, the adults are getting my home baked cookies and kids are getting toys of course! These gift tags are so versatile, you can use it as a sticker on a cookie jars as I have, or use it to finish off your wrapped gifts.

Print these out as many times as you wish, for PERSONAL USE only :)

FREE Eid Lantern template


Eid Mubarak Mini Lantern

I’ve recently redecorated my living room and wanted to have a bit of a Scandinavian influence, though still keeping with that rustic look.  So this design is inspired by those 2 things. Sandinavian + rustic. If you see my Eid design theme (once you print this template), the triangles have a rustic watercolour effect.

Want to know how to DIY this mini lantern? Please follow my step-by-step photos with  instructions on how to construct this lantern, here.
