Oh-great! Me and my baking mode and mood turned on. Attuned and lighted up like a bright wishing star. Having said that, seriously, I had no slightest idea what should be baking in my oven (Cream Puff, Marble Cake & Chocolate Rum Tart) or should it be over the stove simmering or frying sweet guilty pleasure (Poached Pears in Citrus Syrup, Grapefruit Coconut Jelly & Fried Apple Fritters). Honestly, I was rather confused. I really couldn't comprehend, but the fact was that I had already bought a ripe like me in my age mango (Mango Coconut Cake, Mango Cucumber Salad & Mango Coconut Jelly). Mango! Don't we all love the sweet tangy mango? I do. I also must include the sour notes from pineapple (Pineapple Bread Pudding) and lemon (Lemon Cream Pie & Lemon Buttermilk Cake). Yet, staring at the mango didn't get me any further until I remembered my previous No Bake Cheesecake. Decided. Its gonna be cheesecake. Mango Cheesecake. The same biscuit theory. Not digestive biscuits but cream crackers. Would you try? What should hold your back? After all, you never try, you never know and you must put your trust in me.

250g cream crackers - crushed

Cool down the cake and chill in the fridge.
Beautifully done, Nava! I love the idea of a mango puree incorporated into the filling...so yummy! Look at you with another dessert :)ReplyDelete
Gosh... It's my favourite!ReplyDelete
The cream cheese/marscapone blend are great together in cheesecakes and mango was a great choice of fruit. I am glad that you experimented with the crust some, I am always amazed at the variation that is out there. This does look like a winner-simply delicious!ReplyDelete
