I found this from Japanese Italian recipes but seems like Spain has similar desserts called semifrio. It is often called an ice-cream cake, but a true ice-cream cake has layers of cake and ice-cream.

For coffee lovers, this is a must. I added Baileys too.

Pineapple Tarts

Taiwanese have similar cookies although the dough is shaped into square. In fact, these cookies also popular among Muslim in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore where they bake these cookies during Ramadan.

It seems like the idea that pineapples bring good luck is shared within different beliefs in Asia.

It happened to me to find a recipe from Eastern Europe and try to adapt it into Asian ingredients and  turned out to be very nice too. A blend between Europe and Asia. A pineapple tarts that are not sweet as no sugar contents except the sprinkled icing powder on top. It is a little bit hard as the dough is eggless and sugarless.
