Silky and sweet mango cream cased inside a buttery shortbread crust. This no-bake Mango Pie with shortbread crust is inspired by the iconic sweet treat form Yak & Yeti in Animal Kingdom. Bring a little magic back home!
No-Bake Mango Pie
This no-bake mango pie with shortbread crust is dreamy. The filling is fruity and creamy and perfectly complemented by the buttery, crumbly shortbread crust. The best part is that this is a no-bake tart! You can prepare it in less than 20 minutes. It does require a minimum 4 hours of chilling time, but the sauce is simple to make and there’s no need to oven bake.
To Make the Shortbread Crust
I used all-butter shortbread for the crust to match the original dish from the Yak and Yeti restaurant in WDW. You can also make it with digestive biscuits or graham crackers, though you will need to add 50g/4 tbsp extra melted butter.
Simply crush the biscuits in a food processor, or place in a food-safe sealed bag and bash with a rolling pin until crumbled. Then mix in the melted butter and a pinch of salt and press into the tart tin.
This mango tart is made in a 9-inch/23cm tart tin. If you want to recreate the mini version available at the Yak and Yeti Quick Service location then you can split this recipe between mini tart cases.
To Make the Mango Filling
You can buy ready made mango puree, but it’s so easy to make it yourself without the need for any extra sugar or ingredients. Simply peel and dice a medium mango and puree the fruit in a blender. You can also mash it with a fork if you don’t have a blender, though it won’t be as smooth.
Yes! If mango is not your thing then most other fruits would be delicious. I love this with lemon, raspberry or strawberry puree too.
Yes – graham crackers, digestive biscuits or even ginger snap/ginger nut biscuits would work. Just add an extra 50g/4tbsp melted butter to account for the extra butter content of the shortbread.
Keep the pie in the fridge until ready to serve – use a cake cover or upturned food tub/Tupperware to cover as if you use cling film it will stick to the filling.
If kept in the fridge it will keep for 3 days.
