Pineapple Tarts

This is another pineapple tarts recipe I attempted recently originated from Jaime Teo of Everybody Loves A Sweet Ending (the owner of Twelve Cupcakes). The pastry is rich tasty and has a very melt in the mouth texture. 

I am submitting this post to Chinese New Year Delights 2013 hosted by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover.

45g Milk powder
15g Custard powder

1 tsp Vanilla extract
3 Egg yolks

500g Pineapple fillings, roll into 7g (S), big 9g (L)
Egg wash: 1 Egg yolk + 1/2 egg white + 2 drops of oil (beaten)

Preheat oven at 170C, lined the baking tray.
1. Sift (A) together, set aside.
2. Cream butter, vanilla and sugar until light.
3. Add egg yolks one at time till well incorporated.
4. Add in (A) and mix till it becomes a dough.
5. Put dough into plastic bags and refrigerate overnight.
6. Next day thaw the dough till rollable, roll out into 1/2cm thickness.
7. Using a pineapple tart mould, press out, egg wash and top with pineapple fillings.
8. Bake in center rack for about 20 mins.

My pastry turn out too soft to mould. Would you be able to advice? Thanks in advance.

If you have chilled it well as stated in the recipe, it will not be that soft. And when moulding, you have to flour the mould generously to prevent it from sticking. Take out the dough from the fridge part by part. This recipe quite melty and buttery. If you want it to be easier to handle, substitute 1 egg yolk with 1/2 egg white.
