Mango Almond Tart – I love when my friends come over and I enjoy making different types of dishes for them, but today I can’t afford to spend much time in the kitchen, so I’ve decided to go for Mango Almond Tart, it is delicious and hardly takes time to prepare.
Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry is excellent for fruit tarts. It puffs up nicely and maintains the crunch for a long time, but best of all it tastes yum!
Making Mango Almond Tart.
Chopped mango and almond was my filling, no cooking required, the whole recipe comes together in no time and the baking took 15 minutes. I didn’t put much effort to make this delight yet it came out looking fancy.
You can be creative and use any fruit you like. Instead of almonds, you can add pecans, peanuts, or even shredded coconuts. Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets didn’t go soggy although the mango did release juices.
Turn this tart to a savory one, and use your desired filling of baked vegetables or minced meat, the Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry sheets are meant to be used for both savory and sweet recipes.
Tip: It’s always best to refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes before placing it in the oven, this allows the Puff Pastry Sheets to rise and have a great crispy texture.
