Tat Nenas Bergulung

Finally, I have my energy and courage to bake tat nenas for this raya. What is raya without tat nenas. Last year I've sampled delicious tat nenas from Gert.
This is my simple recipe for the tat nenas (pineapple tart).
2 can of pineapple crushed. Drained.
1 cup sugar
a pinch of yellow coloring
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon rose water
Cook all the ingredients until it thicken. Let it cool overnight.

1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoon corn flour
1 stick unsalted butter(4 oz/114 gm) * Thanks to Gert for the correction.
1 egg
1 cup sugar

Beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add an egg and beat again until fluffy. Add corn flour and fold in with flour into the mixture.

Using cookie presses , I line it upside down where the ragged side at the bottom and place the pineapple jem on the smooth side. Roll it over to cover the jem.

Brush the cookies with eggwash. That is lightly beat one egg.
I bake this at 325F degree for 15 minutes or until brown. Let it cool all the way before storing in air tight container. I let Murphy sampled 2 pieces and I have to hid the rest or else it will not last until this saturday.:-)


  1. Zue, you used so little butter for the tarts? You only pakai 2 tablespoon saja (1/4) stick? Keep some for me yea :) :)

  2. wow!! I love nenas tart but never try to make.I'm going to try now.Usually buy from store but by orang Filipino or Indo's not really smell nenas.your nenas tart look good!

  3. Kak Zue,
    Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir batin. Bila suap tart ananas tu, ingat2 sama Cath ya... AHAKS!

  4. Gert, thanks for your teguran. Ya. I dah silap tulis. 1 stick tau!

    beachlover, try la recipe ni. Memang senang. The dough tu will be soft so that you can pipe it out. Another way is to use the cookie cutter. Sprinkle flour on your cookie board and use rolling pin to flatten. Do let me know how yours turn out ya.

    Cath, Thank you for the Raya wishes. Ya, I will think of you, Annabel and Emma. Mari la beraya di rumah I. VA tu tak jauh. :-)

  5. Aik, beraya kat rumah Kak Zue... Roboh nanti rumah Kak Zue with my two monyet... KEKEKEKE.

  6. Cat Cat, jangan la panggil anak-anak you yang cute tu monyet. Kesian mereka. Kalau mereka nakal, auntie Zue kasi time out mengadap dinding or run on the tread mill. :-)

  7. Hi,
    Salam Perkenalan. Dapat ur blog from cath. Jem tart fav i satu family tapi tahun ni i tak buat. Pergi rumah orang pun macam tak jumpa jem tart la tahun ni. Nak pergi rumah you la...hi, hi

  8. Azian Hasan, welcome to my recipe collection blog. Alahai kesiannya you tak jumpa tat nenas. Datang la rumah I, I buatkan special tat nenas untuk you. You suka yang bergulung atau biasa?

  9. Hey Zue,

    Firstly thanks for the recipe. I tried making it, it taste great! However, it doesn't look as pretty & shapely as yours. Looks like it has been flatten out errr expanded. I asked me mum, she said the malay word would be penyek? Any ideas where did I go wrong please? Ta

  10. Micaela, all I could think of when your batter flatten is too much butter. Keep trying ok. This cookies is so good. I love it.

  11. Salams sis,
    InshAllah you'll have a Great Ramadan soon. I've been craving these little biscuits and stumbled across ur recipe. But Im wondering what you used to make the ragged side on the pastry (Im at a total loss :() Thanks! -Nura

  12. Nura, I use the the cookie press with the ragged line at the top. The same tool you would make kuih samperit. I will update the blog with the picture Of the tool later.have a blessed ramadan.

  13. I cup sugar in the pastry? too much sugar I think because the jam is already sweet..

  14. Anonymous, I like my tat nenas sweet. You can reduce the sugar in your pastry if you like to.
