Mango always reminds me of spring and summer vacations to me. I have a profound weakness for Mango, so, whenever I see them at the grocery store they end up in grocery cart. I decided to make this beautiful mango cheesecake tart using my new kitchen tool collection set from Thyme & Table which we can get from Walmart.
The two aisles in Walmart that I never fail to visit every trip even if I had just gone to pick up some milk is the Kitchen tool section, and their baking pan aisle. My hubby says nothing will change from every week’s visit to that aisle. But this time is he is wrong I have seen Thyme & Table kitchen tools in my local Walmart. They are unique and useful kitchen tool selections, yes, their spatulas come with beautiful design on side and have measurement on other side. This is helpful while measuring ingredients for baking. I fell in love with the copper ladle, spoon and turner. They have everything whether it is knife, grater, or measuring spoon, cups etc.
Copper winged corkscrew is perfect to open your favorite wine bottle. My son was helping me in zesting the lime using small grater for making the mango cheesecake tart crust.
If you are looking forward to upgrading old kitchen tools, or to give a newlywed as housewarming gifts buy Thyme and Table kitchen tools. Sometime getting gifts for yourself is fun as you get newer tools. Or if you gift these tools to your friends or loved ones they will remember you every time they use it. Here is the short video I made with my collection of Thyme and table kitchen tools.
Coming to recipe for mango cheesecake tart, I made shortbread crust pastry for the tart, and used lime zest in the crust, and then filled the crust with mango cheese cake filling.
Fillings were made with cream cheese, heavy cream and off course fresh mango puree. I want mango element in everything not only in the topping. Then topped with perfectly sliced mango slices with help of Thyme and Table knife and chop board. They are very sharp, so please handle with care.
Make sure to buy sweet mango to make this tart. Next time when you shop at Walmart, take the time to stop and buy Kitchen tool collection from Thyme and Table and grab some fresh mango to make this dessert.
I am sure you will love both.
