Pineapple tarts or nanas tart are small, bite-size pastries filled or topped with pineapple jam, commonly found throughout different parts of Southeast Asia such as Indonesia (nastar), Malaysia (Baba Malay: kueh tae / Kuih tair, Malay language: kuih tat nanas), Brunei and Singapore in various forms. The origins of the pineapple tart possibly derives from a Portuguese influence back in the 16th century when the pineapple, a fruit native to South America, was introduced to Asia, specifically Malay Peninsula. A similar influenced pastry, known as pineapple cake or pineapple pastry, is also found in Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.
In Indonesia it is called nastar which is contraction of nanas tart (Ananas or pineapple tart), is a popular cookie or kue kering during festive occasions of Lebaran, Natal and Imlek. Just like many of Indonesian kue kering (cookies), it can trace its origin to Dutch influence on Indonesian pastry, cake and cookies tradition.
Most of nastar in Indonesia has round shape with a diameter of about 2 centimetres. The pineapple jam is filled inside instead of spread on top. The cookie is often decorated with small pieces of cloves or raisins on top of it.
