Tart Shell

Preheat the oven to 190˚C.

In a large bowl, beat the egg with a hand mixer. Then add the butter and sugar and mix. Add the flour and mix until combined. The dough will be crumbly and dry in your hands. 

Transfer the crust mixture into a greased 8-inch tart pan one handful at a time, pressing it down to create an even, thin layer over the entire pan, about ¼ inch. Prick the crust with a fork to prevent it from puffing up in the oven. 

This part is a little tough, but if you focus, you’ll get it just right!

Blind bake the crust for 25 minutes with baking paper and baking beans or lentils on top to provide weight and avoid the crust from rising. Take off the baking paper with the beans and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the center is golden brown.

Once it is out of the oven, leave it under a fan to cool quick, since the filling doesn’t take time at all!

Cream Filling

On a cutting board, cut off a half inch off the bottom and top off the mango to give it a flat base. Standing it upright, make exterior slices from the top to bottom to take the skin off. Remove the meat from the sides and thinly slice. In another bowl, take the Tok Doi and strain in with cheesecloth 2 times to have a thick creamy yogurt texture.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, strained yogurt, Malta zest, sugar, Malta juice, and vanilla ( use good quality vanilla, I cant stress this enough)

Transfer the creamy mixture to the cooled tart crust. Starting from the outer edge, place mango slices in a circular pattern, making full rotations all the way to the center.
Chill the fruit tart for at least an hour in the fridge for everything to settle.

Good Luck and Enjoy!
