I usually use mangos for smoothies or in a fruit salad but I really wanted to bake with the delicious fruit. I made these blueberry flower tarts a while back and it gave me the perfect way to use the mangos. Making a homemade mango curd to use in these cute and easy Mini Mango Tarts was such a great idea. Plus, it is a perfect recipe to share with you for #SpringSweetsWeek!

Easy Mini Mango Tarts

When I tell you it’s easy to make mango curd, it’s no lie. The hardest part is waiting for it to thicken while it’s cooking. I used mangos Melissa’s Produce and they were perfectly ripe and ready to use for this recipe. If you’ve never peeled or cut a mango before, this is a great tutorial to show you how. I also used Dixie Crystals granulated white sugar for this recipe to help sweeten up the mango curd.

The luscious and buttery mango curd is perfect for these tarts but it’s also delicious as a filling for cakes, pastries, pies, and so much more.

The flower pie crusts are so easy to make using premade pie crust dough. Shortcuts are a good thing, so I use them when I can. I used a 4 inch flower cookie cutter to cut the shapes out of the dough.

Be sure to spray the mini muffin pan well with nonstick spray so that the flower shells do not stick or break when you remove them. You don’t want to crowd the tart shells, either, so leave ample room when putting them in the baking pan. Pricking the edges and the bottoms will help the shells not puff up during baking.

Steps to Make These Easy Mini Mango Tarts

Step 1

Peel and cube the mango. Fresh mangoes work best for this recipe. Puree the mango cubes in a blender or food processor until it’s smooth. Measure out 1 cup of puree. (If any puree remains, it’s great to freeze for a smoothie or to eat frozen.)

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the mango puree, sugar, lemon juice, 2 whole eggs, and 2 egg yolks over medium-low heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Step 3

Cut the butter into cubes (make sure the butter is cold) and add a few cubes at a time to the saucepan, stirring until the butter is melted before adding more. Once all of the butter has been added and incorporated into the mango mixture, turn the heat to low and continue to stir the mango curd until it’s thick. You will know when it’s thick enough when it coats the back of a spoon and doesn’t drip off. Allow to cool before using. For this recipe, I refrigerated the curd for a couple of hours before I served the tarts.

Step 4

When you’re ready to make the tarts, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin pans with non-stick spray. Set aside.

Step 5

Unroll the pie dough onto a lightly floured surface. Using a 4 inch flower cookie cutter, cut out flower shapes, re-rolling the scraps out as needed.

Step 6

Place each flower shaped dough into a mini muffin cup. Gently press dough into each cup, and then press each petal back on the muffin pan. You will only be making 4 or five on a 12 mini muffin cup pan. You need to space them out. Pricking the bottom and sides with a fork will keep them from curling or puffing up.

Step 7

Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool before filling with mango curd.

Step 8

Fill each flower tart shell with about 1 tablespoon of mango curd.
