Nastar isi Apel / Apple tart cookie

"Lebaran" (Iedul Fitr Feast) this year I spent in Turkey with husband .. It feels so nostalgic feel the atmosphere of  Iedul Fitr Feast a la Indonesia .. Many kind of cookies, "ketupat"(*) eat with Indonesian traditional food (sayur santan), homemade syrup, together with family in Indonesia ....

In Turkey, every Iedul Fitr feast (Ramazan bayram) there always been "baklava"  serve at every house in Turkey ... Unlike in Turkey, "lebaran" feast in Indonesia feel it is incomplete without cookies and other snack, also "ketupat" as the main dish at every homes in Indonesia ... Ooohh ..how I miss Indonesian "ketupat" ....

Trying to ease a little bit homesick at Iedul Fitr feast, I made some traditional "lebaran" cookies also, like this one: "NASTAR" . Nastar is cookies fill usually with homemade pineapple jam, but since I hardly ever to find pineapple this summer -unlucky me :( , so I made it with homemade apple jam.. not bad as well, indeed can be as variation of 'new' nastar after all  d(^_^)b
