Tarte aux Mangues et Poire


3 medium pears
1 large mango

The Dough
2 cups flour
1 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 or 3 tablespoons of water

The Cream
1/4 cup table cream
1/2 c. plain yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs


To prepare the dough pour the flour in a large bowl and add the butter. Knead this with your fingers. When the butter and the flour are mixed thoroughly, add the eggs and 3 tablespoons of water. Keep kneading the dough until itís smooth and homogeneous. When finished, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest in a cool place.

Peel the pears, remove the seeds and slice them into pieces. Put the pear pieces in a sauce pan with a cup of water and cook them on a low heat for 5 minutes. Peel the mango, remove the pit and slice it thinly. Preheat the oven at 350.
Prepare the cream next. Mix the cream, yogurt, sugar and the eggs, in a bowl. Whisk everything together.

Roll the dough into a circle slightly larger than your pie pan. (Have enough dough to cover the edge). Once the dough is in the pie pan, make some holes in it with a fork. Cook this crust alone for ten minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and place the pears and the mango pieces on it. Pour the cream on top. Bake for 20 minutes at 400. Let it cool down.
