Cold day here guys 🥴🥴🥴🥴

But this morning I warmed up the house by baking more cookies 🤣😋✌🤣🤤✌

These are Nastar (nanas tart), which is Pineapple Tart cookies that are not just famous in Indonesia, but throughout South East Asian countries.

Legend has it that they are China and/or Taiwan origin, however, the Portuguese have something similar too. So IDK which one is correct 🤣

Growing up, I used to help my mama making them, just like my mama helped her mum, so yeah, it’s Indonesian 🤣✌🤣✌

Joking aside, Indonesia does have Portugese and China influences in some of our culture and food, so 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Let’s just bite into these babies. Look at his texture, melt in your mouth goody. Yum!
