Looking back at the month
Brian and I welcome you to January 2022’s edition of The Changing Seasons!
January was spent in large part preparing for Chinese New Year which falls tomorrow on the 1st of February. Many have already begun celebrations with reunion dinners over the weekend.
One of these is the Pineapple Tart; what’s not to love: a bite-size buttery pastry with a generous dollop of sweet & tart pineapple jam.
Baker-Fiend Younger Child dreamed up of a bake which would embody this popular Chinese New Year treat, but easier to make so that she could offer this as a festive bake for her baking venture. She brought this limited bake back this year as she worked like crazy to meet orders.
The version we baked frequently over the years is in the form of delightful balls which melt in the mouth.
Pineapple Tart also come in the form of these rolls.

About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
