Mango Egg Tarts

I was thrilled when Jill Colonna, the author of Mad About Macarons invited me to do a guest post for her blog. I was nervous yet excited about the prospect of posting something to complement her impressive collection of confectioneries. Jill had one request. The recipe should have at least two egg yolks because “macaronivores” use up egg whites and leave the egg yolks all yellow with no where to go.

I spent several days thinking about what I could share with her wide audience. I finally settled on an East meets West kind of recipe. Please do Jill and me the honor of going over to Mad About Macarons to read my Mango Egg Tarts post. Thank you!

Mango Egg Tarts

Mango Egg Tarts

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 6 tarts

Mango Egg Tarts


    Graham Cracker Crust
  • 1¼ cups (140g) finely crushed Graham crackers (Marie biscuits, Digestive biscuits, or ginger snaps)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp (70g) unsalted butter, melted
  • Mango Custard
  • 1 cup (240ml) mango puree
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) coconut milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30gm) butter
  • 2 tbsp rice flour


Line a standard size muffin pan with 8 foil liners.

Graham Cracker Crust

Stir together crushed Graham crackers, sugar and butter until well combined. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom and sides of lined muffin pan. Bake in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 8 minutes. In the mean time, work on the custard. When crust is ready, remove and cool on a rack. Leave oven on.

Mango Custard

In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks lightly. Set aside. Heat butter in a pan and cook flour. Pour in mango puree, coconut milk, and sugar stirring over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in egg yolks until well combined. Pour warm filling into baked tart shells. Bake in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 12 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack. When it is cool enough to handle, transfer baked tarts to a flat pan. Cover with foil and chill for at least 4 hours in the fridge.

Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 8-)

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Just a question. There is one part of the recipe which mentioned :

    (Heat butter in a pan and cook flour).

    May i know how long do i have to cook the flour?

    thks and regards

    • Biren says:

      Hi Devan, thanks for visiting! It takes only about 2 minutes to cook the flour with butter.

      • Devan says:

        Hi ,

        I tried this recipe and is yummy. I did the normal tart as i dont have digestive biscuit with me. However i dont get those nice yellowish colour tart like yours and i think the coconut milk overpower the mango puree. Mine taste more like “kaya custard”. But never mind about that, over all is delicious. Thanks again.


        • Biren says:

          Thanks Devan, for taking the time to let me know how it went for you. I am glad you found it delicious. You must have very nice and thick coconut milk where you live (Malaysia?). Over here, I either use carton or canned coconut milk. I prefer the carton but there isn’t much taste to it. There is also thickening agent and so it must be diluted. Perhaps you can use lighter coconut milk or dilute it with water. For the crust, you can use Marie biscuits if you do not have digestive biscuit.

          • Devan says:


            Yes….i m from Malaysia…and i bought fresly squeeze coconut milk…is real thick!!!! Probably that is the reason why i dont get the nice yellowish tart. May be next time i will try using diluted coconut milk.

  22. MaryMoh says:
