Little Lambs Pineapple Tarts!

After baking hundreds of pineapple balls and open-faced pineapple tarts, my itchy hands are eager to try out new design for this almost everyone favorite cookies again! Previously I had so much fun shaping them into piglets.

Since the coming year is the Goat year, cute little lambs as pineapple tarts sound like a great idea!

As I have posted the pineapple tarts recipe previous here, this post is more to share how I shaped the pineapple tarts into the cute little lambs.

How to do:

1. Roll the pineapple jam into a ball.
2. Pinch a bit of the dough, flatten it and put a jam ball on top of it.
3. Wrap the dough around the jam and close up the gap.
4. Shaped it into a slightly elongated ball. This will form the body of the lambs.
5. Pinch more dough and shaped them into various parts of the lamb details as the photo shown below:
^Tail is missing from the photo, just pinch a small round for the tail.

6. For the ears, the long thin thread dough will have to further rolled up like the 'snail shell'.
7. Fix the various parts onto the main body in this sequence: face, head, ears, legs and tail as shown in the photo below:

8. Use something sharp like toothpick to poke 2 eyes and draw a 'Y' to resemble the nose and mouth.
9. Use a scallop tart mould to make curvy patterns on the body to resemble fur.

These darlings are baked in the preheated oven at 160 degree for about 25 min.
