Mangoes are in season, and what better way than to make the most of it; than to have a mango flavored tart… 🙂 . Here is a recipe that is simple and easy to make.. The chocolate and cream cheese mix off set the crispness of the tart; while the mango lends a distinct flavor making this a heavenly little dessert… Take a look..
All that goes in:
For the Tart Shells: I used
- 200 gms of All purpose flour
- 100 gms of butter
- 50 ml of cold water
Makes around 15-18 small/medium tart shells
For the filling: 6-8 shells depending on size of the shells (I used the ingredients more like a guideline than a real recipe; so do feel free to change the proportions to how you would like your filling to taste.. there aren’t any hard and fast rules to this.. 🙂 )
- 50 gms – cream cheese (unsalted)
- 50-60 gms of white chocolate
- 3-5 tbsps – fresh mango puree
- 1 tbsp sugar (optional depending on how sweet your mix is)
Making the filling: using a hand blender, whip up the cream cheese, making it light and airy… Add the melted chocolate in & mix well using a wooden spoon… Then add the mango and sugar and mix lightly till all the elements are nicely combined… (Don’t over mix or you could knock back the air that would have incorporated earlier)
Pour into the tart shells and let the mixture set.. Prep the shells around 15-20 minutes before you are ready to serve.
Serving suggestions: Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and bite right in!!
p.s: As you can see I’ve unsuccessfully piped out the whipped cream into a squiggly swirly pile; not very pretty i know… 😦 …but… what the heck it was soo much fun and ofcourse tasted so good that in the end it was all worth it!
