Flaky melt in your mouth short crust pastry tarts filled with a smooth cream of mango and lime and topped with sweet pieces of mango and sprinkles of lime zest, so yummy and so easy to make!
Extend the dough using a rolling pin until is about 3mm thick. Using a round cookies cutter cut round shapes using all the dough
Place each piece in a muffin tin with no oil or butter. Press gently to make the dough stick to the side of the tin as to create a well formed whole in the middle and with a fork prick 2 or 3 times each circle to allow steam to flow whilst baking
Once all the dough circles are done place squares pieces of parchment or baking paper over each tart holding it down with some baking beans or rice, lentils, beans
Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees C. Once beaked remove the parchment paper from all the tarts and put back in the oven for 10 minutes at 120 degrees C
Once done place each tart on a cooling rack as soon as they are out of the oven.
FOR THE CREAM
Add 1 tsp of granulated gelatin on to a bowl with 1 tbsp of cold water and mix well. Once the gelatin has gone thick add 1 tbsp of hot water and continue to dissolve the gelatin, set aside.
In a blender or food processor blend the mango until a smooth pure. Add the gelatin to the mango and blend again until both ingredients are well combined and set aside
In a stand alone mixer or using a hand held electric whisker whip the cream with 2 tbsp of powder sugar until getting stiff picks
Add the mango pure to the cream and mix well. Add the zest of 1 lime to the cream and mix again
With the pieces left from previously cutting the mango, cut 1 to 2 pieces into small squares and set aside.
Start to assemble each tart by adding 3 or 4 squares of fresh mango a tbsp of cream on top. Repeat until you have done all of the tarts.
Place the tarts in a air tight seal container and place in the fridge over night. This will help the gelatin and cream become more of a mousse like texture
Next day using a piping bag add more cream on top swirling around the tart as shown on the VIDEO RECIPE
Finish by adding 3 pieces of sweet mango for decoration and sprinkling more lime zest. I also like to add a small mint leaf on one side.
