pineapple pastry

Pastry is a baked product that may be savoury or sweetened. Sweetened pastries are made from ingredients such as flour, sugar, milk, butter, baking powder and eggs. One of the sweetened pastry is eggless pineapple pastry, in this pastry fine chopped pineapple or juice is used to give that pineapple flavour. My son loves pineapple pastry but he does not like the big chunks of pineapple that are use to decorate the pastry so personally I avoid them.
