Easy Pineapple Tart Recipe

This Easy Pineapple Tart Recipe is one such recipe that you can make instantly with your leftover pastry dough.

Tart is a open pastry that can be filled with sweet or savory filling. It is blind baked first and then filled with sweet fruit or savory or different layers of filling like cream, ganache or nut praline. Check out my other layered tart recipe.

What is blind bake?

Blind Bake is baking the Tart Shell before filling it with anything. If blind baking is not done, baked tart crust will puff up and it will make raised inside.

Roll the tart crust and with the help of roller add it to the pie tin. Press firmly to the bottom and trim the edges to make it in shape. Place some dry beans/pie weights in a parchment paper and place it inside the pie crust before baking.

Bake the shell till sides are golden brown. Remove the beans and bake it for 5 min to make it more crispy. That’s what blind baking is all about.

How to make the filling?

Filling is totally your choice, it can be either sweet or savory. Most of the time I make fruit filling. Here I used instant filling. Made it on stove top and served it in prebaked Tart shell.

Here I used a mix of apple and pineapple filling. Boil chopped apple, pineapple, brown sugar and water with corn flour. When it thickens a bit, its ready to serve.
