For our family, a CNY must have is pineapple tarts. We all enjoy eating it as the pastry can be crunchy (like a biscuit) or the melt in the mouth sort. That coupled with the sweet (and sometimes slightly sourish taste) of the pineapple, makes it a delightful snack.
So, in preparation for CNY, we got our production line started making our favourite goodie:
The kids happily rolling out and cutting the dough
The pastry cases before the pineapple is added
N patiently glazing the pineapple tarts
The finished product.
F-i-l is the oldest in his family. As a result, we have all his brothers, sisters and their families visiting us over the CNY. So, we have to make sure there is sufficient food and drinks for all. When I was at the supermart buying the drinks, someone commented that I was starting a kopitiam. No, I am not going to compete with kopisoh for her business. But just drinks alone, this is how much we bought:
This is in addition to the traditional longan tea which we serve.
What do you think? Can open kopitiam or not?
