Selam...Merhaba from Türkey.

İt's pineapple tart cookies AGAIN...!! 😉
YYaaayyy..... İ hope you are not bored with it. Yep. This is the MOST repeatable cookie İ made for our cookie jar.
İ lloovvee it and never get bored of it. İf you know what pineapple tart cookies ( İnd, Nastar) is and you ate them before İ believe you like them as well.

Pineapple tarts cookies is one of Indonesian traditional (and some neighbouring countries) cookies that commonly made and serve during religious holiday such as Eid-el Fitr or christmas along with many other traditional cookies like; kaastengelsputri saljupastel miniButter cokies or simple chocolate cookies and more.

But in my house, no need to wait until holiday season to have this melt in mouth yummy cookies. Me and family always have evening tea time just like other Turkish family~and it would be very nice to have some cookies with it, right?
So I always have jars full with some cookies and this pineapple tarts cookies (nastar) is almost never empty cause I love it so much!
With sweet slightly sour taste from homemade pineapple jam inside of melting yummy cookie dough, nothing can beat this favorite tarts till now.

Even İ make this nastar quite often, as İ mentioned above-we never boring of it because we can vary it as many as we can. Just check my COOKİES CATEGORY to see my "nastar" variations. Just like today, İ make cheesy pineapple tart cookie. Adding some cheese into the dough definitely enrich the taste of this classic Indonesian cookies. 💙

İ didn't add shredded cheese over my cookies as the original recipe, you can add more shredded edam cheese as your prefer, see my another "nastar" with shredded cheese here.

Before making this cookie you need to prepare homemade pineapple jam in advance. See my recipe how to make thick pineapple jam for filling. You may need an only half recipe of that pineapple jam for this recipe.
