Shelina’s Simple Mango Tarts

​These beauties can be knocked up in record timing using a handful of ingredients. They deliver the wow factor as they glisten in all their mango glory. The perfect afternoon tea snack or dinner party dessert.  


500g Puff pastry 300g Cream cheese 2 Medium free range, organic egg yolks 75g Billington’s Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar 1 Lime, juice and zest 2 Medium ripe mangoes, thinly sliced into ½ moons 50g Melted unsalted, butter to brush over the cases


Pre heat the oven to gas mark 5/190°C.

Cut the pastry in 4 circles, approx. 6 inches in diameter, score around the edge of the circles, approx. 1 inch in to create a case and place on a baking sheet.

Beat together the cream cheese, egg yolks, golden caster sugar, and half of the lime juice and zest until evenly mixed.

Place 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture in the middle of each pastry circle, keeping away from the edges to allow the mixture to spread whilst baking and top with sliced mango.

Squeeze the rest of the lime juice over the top, along with a bit of grated zest.

Brush the entire tart with melted butter and place into the oven for around 12-15 minutes until the pastry rises and the tops lightly browned.
