Pineapple Shortcake (凤梨酥)

Pineapple shortcakes aka 凤梨酥 seems to be a must buy when one visits Taiwan.I wanted to make them during chinese new year but did not have enough paste(i din wan to purposely buy another box-1kg!). My gal's teacher was asking if i could make golden pineapple balls for her new year(Deepavali) and i was thinking since i will have extra paste,i decided to try making them. ;)

As usual i searched for nice pictures of them then I came across a recipe at Rasa Malaysia.The author of the recipe has actually trial and error many recipes before coming up with it. So i gathered all the ingredients and ta-dah!

I had modified the recipe a little(just a wee little bit) and i am really pleased with the results.Do give it a try and let me know what you think. Btw,i got my square moulds from Tott. ;)
