Pineapple Tart (Melt in the mouth) Enclosed

Pineapple tart is a hot favourite in my family.   This has been our favourite melt in the mouth Pineapple Tart (enclosed) since 2013.  

Initially, I wanted to have a change and made some open faced pineapple tart but time wasn't on my side.  So I have to settle for the enclosed version.

This recipe is easy to handle and rather quick to put together once you get everything weighed out.  My mom likes this version too (that is after my cousin's hot favourite but we couldn't replicate that one).

Half way through I decided to be adventurous and done this scissor cut method.  Guess I need plenty of improvement for this.

Verdict: It is light and has a melt in the mouth texture.
