Pineapple Tarts With A Twist: Green Tea Pineapple Tarts

Anything tastes better with matcha. And these Tea-licious Green Tea Pineapple Tarts are no exception. For a change from the traditional taste, green tea powder is added into the pastry dough giving these delightful little tarts a naturally vibrant green colour. The zen taste of green tea matches so well with the tangy pineapple paste for a smooth, refreshing and light taste. A good idea to bake them with your family to make this coming Hari Raya (Eid) a memorable one!
