Made these tonight. As with other reviewers, my pineapple didn't really thicken...not super sweet.

These were delicious!! I added the tiniest bit of cloves (maybe 1/8 tsp) to the pineapple mixture, along with about 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken it. I was too lazy to make the dough myself, so I bought pillsbury pie dough and baked it at 425 for about 13 mins, which worked out pretty well :) THANKS!!!

These were very good! I added some cornstarch to the filling to thicken a little more. I used canned Pineapple instead, and used the pineapple juice from the can instead of water in the filling. I also sprinkled them with sugar before baking. I had some Malaysian friends over and fed these to them. They loved them, but they didn't say they were Malaysian. Thanks for the easy but elegant dessert.

This was pretty easy but they did not look as beautiful as your picture. I have made dough about 2 times in my life so this worried me a little. It took my pastries about 15-18 minutes. i don't know why. But they tasted excellent. So I probably need to practice on the presentation. Thanks.

Wow! These are so delightful! I have never made pastry dough before. The directions for this were so good that I even got it right. The filling is REALLY good too. I ended up using canned pineapple. And I am ashamed to say that I had to use the store brand stuff. I still LOVE these. The flavour was still really good. I can only imagine what it would be like with either fresh pineapple or at least good quality canned stuff! Thanks for posting!
