Low`Fat Pineapple Tarts (not fat-free)

I never could have thought pineapple tartscould have been low fat… yet taste BETTER … whoa!

My version of these delicious pineapple tarts not only taste better than the commercial ones but are also less artery- clogging and definitely more heart- friendly, with significantly less butter than the usual ones. This unfortunately also means that you would definitely eat more at once because it is less greasy and fullness- inducing. Like how my parents did. They loved these and I do too! If you bake them just right, they will have the really amazing melt-in-the-mouth feeling! But as you can see from my pictures, you have to handle the dough really well or else the tarts will end up with gazillion cracks like mine.

    what can I use to replace maltose? Because I can’t find maltose from where I live ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. qiting93 says:

      High Maltose Corn Syrup/ Barley Malt Syrup/ Honey will also do! Itll be less healthy though ๐Ÿ™‚

    That crust on the outside looks so buttery and delicious. I’d definitely enjoy biting into one of these and eating it to the last crumb. I have a linky party going on at my blog called “Sweets for a Saturday” and I’d like to invite you to stop by and link this up.
