It's baking time

Being bored reading and studying these few days, decided to bake something 'complex' but nice, what came to my mind: Pineapple rolls. This is kind of expensive cookies, in Malayisa, it is selling for over RM20 per box or more. No wonder considering the amount of work involved. Since canned pineapples are so cheap here, we won't even consider using fresh pineapples for the filling. We chopped the pineapples and cooked in the its own syrup until soften with a stick of cinnamon. This will take some time, from half an hour to one hour. Do this with low heat and lot of patient. Adding sugar at the end and fried the filing with high heat until it caramelized. The filling will turn to golden brown. Now, let the filling cool down while preparing for the dough.

Making the dough is actually the simplest part of all. Just add 250g butter to 250g flour, a packet (60g) of pudding powder, one egg yolk and 50g icing sugar. Knead the dough until all the ingredients are well mixed. You don't have to do this for too long, the dought shouldn't be too hard. Now it is time to form the pineapple rolls. We used to do this one by one by hand. This time I bought a new toy, with it I could form the dough for the rolls much easier within some minutes. Then we just roll the dough around some pineapple filling. We could make around 30 rolls with the dough. Brush the rolls with egg yolk and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. We used three cans of pineapples and there is still a lot left over, will make some more again tomorrow. The pineapple rolls turned out very yummy. Share some photos with you.
