  • Sift flour and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar into a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in egg yolks with enough water to form a ball. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out to line an 8 inch flan ring, or tart shell. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden. Allow to cool.

  • In a large bowl, combine cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, mangoes and lemon juice. Beat until mixture is fairly smooth, but still has chunks of mangoes. Spread into baked pastry shell and top with blueberries. Dust lightly with confectioners' sugar before serving.

It seemed obvious to me that the 1/2 tablespoon of butter is a typo. 1/2 cup of butter makes a beautiful crust. I made this for a pot luck and it was a hit! I almost didn't want to tell people how easy it was. More fun to let them think I spent hours and hours making it. Read More

I agree with previous reviews that the crust need the extra butter. Also the consistency was very soupy although I added an extra 8 oz of cream cheese. Has good potential though. Read More

This recipe was so exquisite! Thank you for sharing. I used nectarines instead of mangos as the mangos at the store were looking pretty sorry. It turned out great with nectarines too. This was easy to make and absolutely delicious. It looks elegant too. My boyfriend and I couldn't stop eating it. Read More

It was incredibly simple to make and absolutely delicious. One suggestion: chill for at least 2-3 hours before serving for best results. Read More

Chilled for five hours before serving at a dinner party and it was like a pie plate full of soup. It never fully set. The taste was fine but Iwon't be making this again. Read More

I also had the problem that the filling didn't set but I just put it in the freezer for a few hours and then served it frozen and the flavor was still great. My husband gave it a good which is high praise. I did use half a peach instead of mango's because that was what I had on hand and it seemed like what was called for in the recipe was way too much. I also made a graham cracker crust instead of the crust the recipe called for. But all in all the filling is what makes this dessert and that was delicious. Read More

I didn't have small tart pans so used a regular size pie plate. Didn't feel like making crust so I used a simple cobbler topping as the crust. Baked it for 25 min @ 350 degrees let it cool then filled it. The filling is delicious! It is soft and a bit runny as stated in other reviews. I'm thinking next time will beat the sugar and cream cheese together first run the mango thru the fool processer then stir it into the cream cheese mixture. The filling is worth making again. My husband said he could eat the whole pie! Read More

This was a really great recipe - a great way to add fruit into the cream cheese filling. I would advocate using only the freshest of each ingredient. Read More

I used frozen mango 3/4 cup. Add a little vanilla or almond extract. You could also use some instant cheesecake pudding mix to thicken if it doesn't work for you. Read More
