Mango Tart with Sugar Cookie and Cranberry Crust


1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups sugar cookie mixture
1 cup chopped dried cranberries
3/4 oil

1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Press mixture with fingers and mixture should stick together when it's ready. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 18 minutes. Set aside and let it cool.


3 firm ripe mangoes
6 egg yolks
1 cream cheese
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 can condensed milk
1 tbsp vanilla

2. Peel mangoes, cut both sides, and slice thinly. Put in a bowl and pour half of lemon juice. Slowly mix mango slices and lemon. Set aside.

3. In a sauce pan, whisk yolks and remaining lemon juice. In a low heat, cook egg mixture stirring constantly. Combine all ingredients and continue stirring until cream cheese dissolves and mixture thickens, approximately 30 minutes. Cool to warm.

4. Arrange a layer of mango slices to cooled crust and pour mixture over mango slices. Spread evenly and top with mango slices. 

Note: Mixture has strong egg smell when it's not ready yet. Continue cooking and stirring for another  5- 10 minutes. The crust itself is very good...will use this recipe for cookie as well. Chill before serving.
