    Can you please tell me, if we have to bake the pastry first then pour the filling and bake again or everything goes in the oven at the same time. I am little confused

    Assuming the lemon zest and juice go into the bowl with the rest of the wet ingredients, but the instructions don’t mention adding them.

    Can I serve the tart after it completely cools off?? Or do I really need to refrigerate it first??

    It's better to let it set in the refrigerator

    Hi, your recipe looks tempting. I really want to make this ASAP for my 6 yr old boy - I have 2 questions - Can we cook the mango filling on bain marie like a lemon custard for lemon tart. And then pour it on pre baked tart shell. Not sure why do you ask to put the tart shell in the oven and then pour the filling? My oven is small and I can’t do that. How will it affect if I pour the filling and then put the tart for baking in the oven. Great thanks

    I don't know why people are rating without actually reviewing the recipe or commenting but I wasn't sure is would be good since it was 3.8 stars but I made this yesterday and it was really tasty! The mango flavor wasn't very strong though, maybe because I used frozen mangoes. I may try to add more next time and cook it down to concentrate the flavor. The crust was a bit hard, I may use a sweet shortcrust recipe next time. Overall it was very good and a unique dessert!

    Really lovely! Mango flavour is a little subtler than I would like, but still works as a subtle flavour. I made individual ones in small tart tins of about 12cm diameter and baked them for 30 mins.

    I tried the recipe it was ok. The crust was too soft for my liking and the mango flavour was very mild . These where what could have been improved upon. Pre cooked the crust for 15 mins before adding the mango filling and maybe more mango pulp and only egg yolks and less cream

    Terrible recipe, I should have done more research on tarts in general before trying it. Filling like this needs to be cooked first so the egg yolks are tempered. There's too much liquid in it and it didn't set whatsoever. I did follow the recipe exactly.
