Mango Lime Curd Tartlettes

In custard, fruit, tart on August 9, 2010 at 08:25

Week 26 | 8.9.2010
A slight detour in my baking schedule and a very ripe mango led me to a pleasant discovery the other day. Mango & lime curd!

Fruit curds are pretty straightforward – eggs, fruit puree, some acid for flavor and to cut the sweetness, and finished with butter for creaminess. Simple but oh man, so tasty. Not to subject you too soon to yet another round of macarons (my discovery batch of curd ultimately wound up here), it’s back to tarts. Stay tuned.

Monday

Mangoes, limes, zest, eggs, sugar. Go! A lot of whisking while standing over a double boiler. Absolutely worth it – silky, smooth, tangy and sweet.

First batch of molds lined with cocoa dough.

Wednesday

More dough, more baking.

Thursday

Tartlettes filled & topped with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. Enjoy!

  1. I love mangoes and try to use it during summer as much as possible in salsa, dessert, shake and more. I will add Mango Tarts in to this list! Yummy! Thanks for sharing.
