Pineapple shortcake

One of my wife’s friend has read about the pineapple tarts and kindly sent some pineapple shortcakes to us. I gather this brand is one of the most popular in Taiwan. And as I am a great fan of such pastry, I felt I had to post about it here.

Now the pineapple shortcake does taste different to the pineapple tarts, and even the texture in the mouth feels totally different. The pastry has a more milky taste, and the pineapple filling is a little denser. But I can certainly understand why this is popular in Taiwan. After finishing the first pack, I could not wait to open the second one. Different but nice. And a big thank you to my wife’s friend.
