1. Mode : EXTREMELY BUSY!
Had to really push myself to the limit to meet the deadline. Not that I am being my Mrs.Last Minute dot Com self, but the list kept getting longer just because Yours Truly is being Mrs Softy. I must be firm with myself in future, insyaAllah.... erk... will I be able too?? Hmmm...
There were smell of cookies baking in the oven, at midnight, most of this week. If the smells do travel, then my thousand apologies to all my neighbours! Can't help it...sorry!
2. I am blessed with a good hubby. These past few days, he had been 'baking' at the office. The first day he came home with two plastic bags filled with dodol, kuih bangkit gula melaka and putu kacang. The next day, he brought kuih ros/kuih goyang, kuih siput and bahulu. And yesterday morning, when he was about to leave for work, I told him that he need not 'bake' any more goodies as I think we had enough. But he said he's going to 'bake' some fruit cakes! So dear wifey can just goyang kaki and need not bake any cookies! Haha.. but I still have to bake some cookies for my mom's house and will bake her favourites only, if time permits!
I googled for this tart recipe because Saerah's sister wanted some Blueberry Rolled Tarts. Last year, I had used Mat Gebu's blueberry tart recipe. So this year, I might as well try something else and my search ended at Yatie's Kitchen. Thank you Yatie for sharing this melt-in-the-mouth recipe. According to Yatie, she got it from Kak Ita of RNet. Thank you both.
ROLLED BLUEBERRY TART 2
Posted by MamaFaMi
Adapted from : Yatie's Kitchen
250g butter (I used Planta margarine)
2 teaspoons caster sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon blueberry emulco (I added)
purple food coloring (I added)
200g corn flour
Readymade blueberry paste (I got mine from Yummie's Bangi)
To drizzle :
White cooking chocolate - melted
1. Stir margarine and sugar. Add egg yolks, blueberry emulco and purple coloring. Stir to mix.
2. Add in corn flour. Stir.
3. Add enough flour till you get a very soft dough. I had lessen the amount of flour (Yatie used 180g), so that the dough can easily go through the tart piping mould.
4. Press the dough through the mould for about 2 inches long. Place some blueberry jam and roll the tarts. Put in a papercup and arrange on a tray.
5. Bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for 20 minutes.
6. Leave to cool and drizzle with some melted white cooking chocolate.

Have a great day everyone!
