Pineapple tarts are my eldest daughter favourite tart,  I always bake this for her....It was about 20 years ago, the price for pineapple in Korea was very expensive as it was imported fruit. Now, we can buy the pineapple at a low price and it is cultivated in Jeju Island too ...

1. Peel the skin of the pineapples and finely chop pineapples in food processor. Transfer to pot and cook with low heat, have to stir it constantly, until almost all liquid has evaporated. Add in sugar and cinnamon powder and keep on cooking until filling is thick and sticky. During the cooking process, stirring constantly.
