Pineapple Ginger and Cardamom Tarts

This is an awesome and so simple dessert which I love to do when short on time or have put all my efforts into the main and starter already and just don't have it in me to go all out on dessert too. Plus everyone loves them! This idea is based on Danks St Depot owner Jared Ingersoll and I love the combination of pineapple and ginger, then topping it off with the punch of cardamom or aniseed. The flavours all marry so well. Great dessert to follow an Asian themed meal, but also works for just about any cuisine so is very versatile, and simple!

A few slices pineapple
Sour cream
8 ginger nut biscuits
1 tsp cardamom

In advance, place ginger nut biscuits into a small muffin tin in low oven, when they become soft use back of spoon to push down and make little tart shells. Once cooled store in an airtight container.

To serve, spoon a dollop of sour cream into the tart shell, top with some freshly chopped pineapple and sprinkle with some cardamom.
