Servings 8 servings


  • 23cm/9 inch tart case


  • 300 grams All-Butter Shortbread 10.5 oz
  • 100 grams Unsalted Butter, Melted 7 tbsp
  • Pinch Salt
  • 300 ml Double or Heavy Cream 1 ¼ cups
  • 100 grams Caster Sugar 3.5 oz
  • 120 ml Mango Puree (from 1 medium mango) ½ cup


  • To make the shortbread crust, pulse the shortbread in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. You can also place them in a food-safe bag and bash with a rolling pin until crumbled.
  • Mix in the melted butter and a pinch of salt (omit the salt if using salted butter) and press the mixture into a 9 inch tart tin.
  • To make the mango filling, first prepare the mango puree (or use pre-made). Peel and dice a medium mango. Puree the fruit in a blender.
  • Add the sugar and cream to a medium saucepan over a low heat. Stir until the sugar has melted then, keeping the heat low, allow the mixture to bubble for 2 minutes - keep stirring constantly and don't let the mixture stick to the pan.
  • Take off the heat and stir in the mango puree. Allow to cool slightly then slowly pour the mixture into the crust.
  • Allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours, ideally overnight.
  • Serve and enjoy!
