The perfect summertime dessert, these Mango Cream Bars perfectly capture the tropical essence of this flavorful fruit. These mango cream bars feature three distinct layers. The first layer is a flaky, buttery crust. The second layer is a sweet, flavorful mango puree with a touch of sweetness. The last layer is a creamy cheese and yogurt mixture, lightly flavored with almond extract. Together, the layers make a smooth and elegant dessert bar to serve at your next party.

Ingredients

  • 280 grams flour
  • 170 grams salted butter
  • 100 grams raw sugar

  5. Cook until all the liquid has evaporated, approximately 10 to 15 minutes, turn off the heat and cool slightly.
  6. To prepare the cream topping, put the ricotta cheese through a sieve and place it in a bowl, add the greek yogurt, the raw sugar, the eggs, and the almond extract.
  7. Stir well to combine and set aside for later.
  8. To complete the dessert, remove the pie crust from the oven and cover with a layer of mango puree.

I was absolutely amazed at how well this particular recipe turned out. They really held a prominent mango taste to them and the cream really gave it a sweetness that was much desired. They were not extra chewy like many of these recipes are and would definitely rate at a 4 star level in my book. I plan to make these again tomorrow.
