Charcoal Pineapple Tart

I baked this Charcoal Pineapple Tart back in 2010 and remembered I find it nice looking.  Love the contrast color to it.  So I am keeping this in my current blog for future reference.

Findings: This is more biscuit like and does not melt in the mouth but have loose crumbs to it.

340 g butter, chilled

2 tbsp castor sugar

½ tsp salt

8 tbsp boiling water

Flour for dusting

Beat 1 egg and 1 yolk with 2 drops of yellow food colouring


Sift flour, baking powder and charcoal powder. 

Rub in the butter lightly into flour with tips of fingers till mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Beat castor sugar, egg yolks, vanilla essence, salt in a bowl.  Lightly will do.
