These pineapple tarts are quite healthy to eat. In fact I used two different types of pastry.
For the healthier version, I used olive spread and a little egg. The other version was half butter and half olive spread. This is in line with my self-created healthy-eating programme.
At least I can enjoy the tarts without feeling so guilty.
The healthy ones - no butter used.
All egg-glazed and waiting to be baked!
The chocolate chip cookies is an improved version of my previous bake. I made a little adjustment to get the preferred texture. It is really full of mini chocolate chips with eat bite!
These peanut cookies are not the crunchy type. They have to be handled carefully or it will simply break into pieces. But they are wonderfully peanutty and melt in the mouth with each bite.
Why pay $50 or more for a kilogramme of sweet meat? The price of sweet meat or bak kwa has been escalating over the years. I simply refused to pay so much for it though I love to eat it.
There must be a way to beat these exorbitant prices!
Thus I decided to make my own sweet meat. I've been quite encouraged by some recent postings of fellow bloggers making sweet meat. Homemade sweet meat? Why not?
I have on hand a few recipes and I played around with the seasonings from the various recipes, tweaked a little here and there and came up with my version. Hmm... That was easy enough.!
My version is very much healthier; I used premium lean meat with minimal fat. It turned out good and tender despite all the leanness. My hub said it's good, so happy ending!
(The premium meat cost me $14.50 and I got slightly over a kilogramme of sweet meat!)

These are sliced and ready for grilling!
But I wrapped them and stored in the fridge for cny.
