Vegan Pineapple Tarts

In Chinese New Year, who don’t want good luck or prosperity, agree? We have lots of taboos and superstitions. Chinese love pineapple tarts. Why? Because the word “pineapple” in Hokkien is “Ong Lai“, meaning Good Luck Comes/ Prosperity Comes! Besides, the sweetness itself will attract sweet things.

Disappointedly, most of the pineapple tarts in the market are not vegan (with egg). So, as a pineapple tarts lover, I’ve decided to make my own vegan pineapple tarts. The most important part of course is the tart. After getting some advices from Sister Lisa and a few experiments, now, I proudly present to veganlogy’s readers the Vegan Pineapple Tarts, especially in this joyful season. Try this crunchy type recipe filling that is texturally fibrous tangy zing with to it.
