  • She looks like the chef from ratatouille the one that falls in love with the boy

  • This makes me said knowing niki is gone

  • OMG how did i miss Niki is from Singapore. My extended family is spread over Johor & Singapore. I know exactly the Pineapple Tart she is talking about. It has a slight fibrous stringy texture but very soft and easily breaks. It's amazing haven't ate one in about decade. Last time i was in Singapore was 4 years ago. Awww.

    • Huh the jam version, i know of one which uses Whole Candied then Stewed Pineapple pieces as the filling.

  • Hi from Singapore

  • I’m pretty sure this cookie is called NASTAR in indonesia. I used to make this cookie a lot with my grandma and aunty

    • And to make it looks flowery you can use fork and push it gently after shaping it into a roll of dough with a pineapple jam filling inside

  • why your pineapple tart got line over it one

  • Im allergic to pineapple 😵

  • Isn’t the cookie essentially a butter cookie? We also have those cookies during eid! 😊

  • I’m Indonesian and I think I kinda know what it tastes like, and for Indo viewers ini nastar bukan sih kalo di Indo?

  • Can’t you just...... look up a recipe or when your family visits or ask your mom

  • wait so they just took someone else's family recipe, barely changed it at all, and it was perfect... what was the challenge in this lmao like two of the only three things they changed were bad ideas that they went back on anyway so it was almost the exact same recipe

  • Nikki's eyebrows are so drawn

  • 6:47 is the part where all of you are looking for

  • Do you use the baking trick where you gather the remaining dough (after using a cookie cutter) and roll and cut it out again? My grandma does that so we can have as much as possible.

  • Tasty should stop saying "this chef" should be "Can Rie"

  • Is Rie already married?

  • so you make a Nastar right?

  • You should show ur cooking skills to shef ramsay

  • Kue nastar toh.. emang enak

  • You aren’t even going to tell us wtf these are called?

  • That's "nastar" in Indonesia, you should come to my grandma's and try her nastar :)

  • The two should make porn.

  • Ching chong.

  • I made the recipe at home and it came out like the tarts in the video! They are very good and I recommend this to everyone!

  • Those look amazing! I might have to try this one

  • i need to know who edits these videos i love it so much

  • Oi!

  • Love the animation at the beggining

  • so.....where can i get myself a rie?

  • this made me so happy!!!!

  • Anybody else hear ríes giggle and just go awww 🥰

  • I love them both but they don't seem to have good chemistry

  • Lesby action

  • Ladies and Gents this video has me in tears😭😭 So sweet💕💕

  • I hate that girl that’s not Rie she’s so frickin annoying I think I’m gonna get autism from watching her


  • i can eat pineapple tart all day .. its my favourite too and its not just for lunar new year but also during eid in Malaysia :-D

    • and i remember making the tart once guided by my aunt .. we bake the filling which is on top of the dough and not separately. and you have to use the cookie cutter that has dent in the middle to hold the filling.

  • That dough looks a lot like pasta frolla, and from both the recipe and the description I think it's basically that 😁 loving the international pasta frolla!!

  • Niki: Wow why are you so much better at this than I am? Rie: I paid a lot of money to go to culinary school. As a culinary student... I feel this

  • “I don’t.... Let’s not talk about it!” Me in class

  • Rie is BuzzFeeds mom

  • Maybe you guys haven't realized this, but on 9:38 Nicky just made a lifetime friendship promise to Rie that they'll be friends for very, very long time. It actually made my eyes water a bit. :')

  • OMG! Oh, ladies you have me laughing out loud in public! Outstanding team work! Thank you for sharing part of your heritage. It definitely looks delicious! Maybe Tasty should add some cooks to the videos, not just the food. Wonderful!

  • thats just Singaporean version of nastar

  • Next year I'm flying East with suitcases filled with oranges!

  • I love Rie, she’s like everyone at tasty’s mom 😍

  • My grandmother has the best recipe for pineapple tarts even i cant recreate ..

  • My mom is actually love this tarts and she always buy them when Eid Al Fitr (religious celebration for Muslim) came.

  • they look so good

  • Im Jamaican and wanna try those so bad!

  • Tat nenas

  • U r from Singapore what the hell I'm from Malaysia ... What up neighbour !! 😊

  • So ,when will the first production line of these awesome cookies 🍪 ?!!

  • I'm sorry for taking my pineapple tarts at home for granted

  • I literally just went to get pineapple tarts to eat while watching this vid

  • This looks like when me and my mum cook together

  • Rie is best girl :)

  • Y'all I love Rie, but her knowledge in gastronomy is VERY limited... and she went to culinary school, hmm?! You should hire someone that has more knowledge and knows the science behind what you're making. The videos would be entertaining AND educational.

  • singapore reppin WOOP WOOP

  • I'm from Malaysia. Pineapple tart is one of our main cookies. I use to watch n help a little my mom bake it. N it's easy. But now i'm thinking of making it by myself, i don't think it'll work the same. It never occurred to me to ask 4 the recipe. I think i want to noted it the next time my mom making it 😍😋

  • :Why are you so better than I am? : I paid a lot of money going to culinary school

  • oh yay yay Niki grew up in SG where I'm growing up

  • Rie is best Tasty producer and they need to bring back Niki cause Niki funny.

  • Try to search "nastar nanas" maybe you can tried to make it too..

  • anyon else singaporean 👀

  • My family use ready made pineapple jam since we would make a large batch for a few days

  • Rie to the rescue

  • In indonesia, i think we called it Kue Nastar. Chek it out!

  • WTF @ Nikki eating the second try cookie. Thoroughly creeped out.

  • In indonesia we called it "nastar"

    • I am also Indonesian.I just made them.So happy to see a lot of Indonesian people

    • Yea im also indonesian

  • I ♥️ those cookies 😍😋👌

  • What's going on with Nikki's eyebrows???

  • Didn't know Niki is from Singapore?

  • My mum use to sell pineapple tarts for all festive events. She makes like more than 10000 pieces each festive. I have never put sugar for the dough. Don’t have to make it complicated as the pineapple jam is already super sweet. 250g of butter, 1egg, a pinch of vanilli and flour just add in little by little until it is the right consistency.

  • Niki: Who am i? Me:You are niki Niki:Ok Me: 😮 She answered me!

  • they're called nastar in indonesia


  • Dang it, as a Malaysian you make me miss them!

  • I teared up when she ate the cookie lolol I love Niki and Rie

  • 7:36 *_sounds like a jack stauber song hmmm..._*

  • Gladis should *definitely* appear more often

  • why are you so much better at this than i am? "I paid a lot more money going to culinary school." onbsbsbnsskl thats how i feel whenever somebody asks how i draw so well like if i dont i'll be failing college and wasting my parent's money

  • I appreciate her beautiful thick brows

  • At first I thought the flower was baking powder and I was like 😱😱😱😱😱😱

  • In indonesia we called this "Nastar" but with a little different shapes jejeje

  • Oi oi oi #Asian 😂

  • We call 'em "nastar" in Indonesian (short for tart nanas) & theyre served during Eid too! Only ours look like plain balls, theyre not shaped like sunflowers

  • Zoo much blarp

  • This is nastar, nanas tart

  • wholesome

  • I felt like I’m in that video eating those pineapple cookies, but then I realize I’m just watching the video so then I’m like: I WANT COOKIES! I am drooling right now

  • I don’t want to sound rude but Niki’s eyebrows bothered me a lot.

  • my fave is the second one

  • Niki asks great questions and Rie is so smart and beautiful, and willing to be humble if she doesn’t know something.

  • Oh my, I'm eating something similar and it's from Singapore 😂

  • Why are so much better at this than me? Rie: I paid so much money going to culinary school. o.o

  • the taiwanese version of these tarts is like, shortbread based, does anyone know if these are?

  • Where's the recipe link? :(

  • *has a bag of oranges* "Where my money at?"

  • Rie ❤❤
