Kumquat 'Nastar' Rolls

Everyone is making pineapple rolls or pineapple tart...... I wanted to make this too but I still have two punnets of kumquats in my fridge so I thought of using it to make Kumquat Nastar Rolls instead of the usual pineapple.   How's that for a change?

Pastry Dough from Sonia of Nasi Lemak Lover

175g butter
50g condensed milk
255g plain flour / all purpose flour
1 egg yolk

1 egg yolk, for egg wash

About 450g Kumquat filling
(blend & puree the kumquat and cooked with sugar and some water)

1. Cream butter and condensed milk till light.
2. Add in egg yolk, and beat until combine.
3. Mix in flour, mix till become a soft and not sticky dough.
4. Put dough into a Nastar mould and press out into strips about 5-6cm long.
5. Place kumquat jam filling on the edge of a strip and make a small elongated roll.
6. Cut off excess dough, brush with egg glaze.
7. Bake in preheated oven at 170c for 15-18mins or till golden brown.
8. Cool on wire racks before storing.

 I love it......... taste so yummy....... because I just loves Kumquat!  

Because some of the kumquats going to get rotten in the fridge, it just gave me an idea of using it as the filling for this rolls as replacement for a change for pineapple instead.

   Good for a change, isn't it?

                    I am submitting this post to Chinese New Year Delights 2013 hosted by 

                                This is made in 2014....thought of upload this pic to this old post here.


  1. I think can mix both leh..... this way, can have more filling and not so runny

  2. You are really a true kumquat lover ! This is a nice change!

  3. I don't really fancy pineapple tarts and kumquat sounds better to me than pineapple in these tarts!

  4. Mel, thats a great idea to rplace pineapple with kumquat, certainly a nice change from the usual. Your tarts look so buttery and shiny, almost popping right out of my ipad screen.

  5. That's a good change and auspicious too :) Good thinking Mel!

  6. Hi Mel! They look just like pineapple tarts! I'm sure they taste as good...

  7. Interesting twist, I think I will love this too!

  8. What a great idea,Mel! I like both the pineapple and kumquat flavoured, in fact I like drinking kumquat juice very much,hehe

  10. I've never had kumquat before but these look really yummy, and the colour is so golden and beautiful!

  11. pineapple tarts we have tasted so many but not kumquat rolls, this is simply brilliant! Prosperity on its way to your house!!

  12. Those look pretty festive, Mel. I am pretty partial to pineapples but I think the kumquat filling sounds great, too. I like the pastry dough recipe because it has condensed milk. I bet it would taste great with any filling.
