Remember those pineapple tarts I mentioned in an earlier post? Well, I discovered some pineapple "jam" and pastry left in Mum's freezer so I decided to use them up before they find themselves forgotten and part of the deep polar cavern of her age-weathered icebox.
I was going to make the pineapple tarts the traditional way but after watching an episode of The Little Einsteins with my nephew, I decided to shape them into the faces of little pigs instead.
Although I would love to share my Mum's recipe with you, I am afraid I can't. Sorry. But if you feel spirited enough to spend a few hours stirring hand-grated fresh pineapples and stamping out a few dozen shortbread cases, you may find a similar recipe here. Or you might like to try a simpler version like this one here.
