Mango Pie

aaand we’re back again with the roses!

This could definitely serve 8+ people but it’s especially hard to share ?? Also another callout: I used the (very small amount of) leftover dough from the previous apple rose tart, so rather than having a full pie shell, like the one that’s written out in the following recipe, I had enough for a thin base—which was also quite nice!

Custard recipe from NYT Cooking ??


  1. Pastry
  2. 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  4. 3/8 tsp salt
  5. 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  6. 2 egg yolks
  7. 2 tsp heavy cream
  8. 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  9. Mango Custard
  10. 3/4 cup cold water
  11. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  12. 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 teaspoon powdered gelatin (2 1/2 packages at 2 1/2 teaspoons per pack)
  13. 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  14. 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  15. 1 (30 ounce) can Alphonso mango purée (3 1/4 cups)
  16. 1 large pinch sea salt
  17. Topping
  18. 4 mangoes, chilled and thinly sliced


  1. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor, stand mixer, or in a medium mixing bowl.

  2. Pulse/stir/cut in the butter with a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

  3. Add the egg yolk, cream, and vanilla, and process/mix/stir until the dough gathers itself into a ball and pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.

  4. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.

  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/8-inch.

  6. Press the dough gently into the tart pan(s), trimming away any excess.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F—prick the bottom with the tines of a fork. This will prevent it from getting air trapped underneath and poofing up as it bakes.

  8. Place 3/4 cup cold water in a large bowl. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup sugar with the gelatin; sprinkle mixture evenly over the surface of the cold water. Let sit a few minutes to bloom.

  9. In the meantime, whip the cream and remaining 1/4 cup sugar together until medium-stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  10. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm 1 cup of the mango purée to body temperature (stir to make sure you are just warming it and not bringing it to a boil).

  11. Pour warmed mango purée over gelatin mixture, and whisk until well combined. Gelatin should dissolve into mango completely. Gradually whisk in remaining mango purée.

  12. Use a rubber spatula to beat the cream cheese in a medium bowl until it is soft and smooth, then add to mango mixture along with a large pinch of sea salt.

  13. Use an immersion blender to blend until completely smooth, tipping the bowl to make sure you’ve incorporated everything well. Gently tap the bowl on the counter once or twice to pop any air bubbles.

  14. Use the spatula to gently fold about 1/4 of the mango mixture into the whipped cream, then fold cream into the larger amount of mixture until no streaks remain.

  15. Pour custard onto the cooled crust. Use a rubber spatula to smooth out the filling.

  16. Arrange mango slices in concentric circles starting from the center.

  17. Refrigerate 5 hours or overnight until firm and chilled. Serve chilled.
