Thanks to Alice and her adorable daughter, Mimi from Sweet Savoury Life, I was inspired to whip up this dessert.
Instead of strawberries and blueberries which are really expensive here, I used mangoes instead. This was one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made and it tasted soooo good. As long as you know how to operate a hand mixer, use an oven and spread a bread, you’re pretty much set.
# – Mango cream cheese puff.
Best thing of all, you only need 4 ingredients, and they’re all easily available from the average supermarket in Malaysia!
- 4 slices of puff pastry squares
- 2 mangoes, peeled and sliced
- 140 grams of cream cheese, leave to soften in room temperature
- 2 tablespoons of icing sugar
# – First, lay out the puff pastry squares on a baking tray. As you can see, I folded the corners in hoping they would puff up in a nice cradle sort of shape but they didn’t…so don’t bother haha.
# – Stick them in a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees celcius for 25 minutes. Oh lard, I am aware I need to clean my oven :P
# – In the meantime, add two tablespoons of icing sugar to the cream cheese in a mixing bowl.
# – With a hand mixer, beat till sugar and cheese are completely combined. Set aside.
# – Eject both beaters off from the handle, then bring then to your living room. Sit down, turn on television and lick the beaters clean. Enjoy yourself. Hide the scale.
# – Now slice the mangoes into desired shapes. Leave to chill in the fridge.
# – When the puff pastries are done, leave them out to cool for about 15 minutes.
# – You may use a really girly, lacey food cover to deter the flies.
# – After they’ve cooled down, press the middle of the puff down. Your fingers will be covered in crumbs but that’s okay.
# – Spread the sweetened cream cheese all over the pastry.
# – Then lay sliced mangoes over the top. Mango cream cheese puff, DONE!
# – Bite into it. Hear the angels sing.
If you’re a fan of cream cheese frosting, you would understand why I love this dish so much. Crispy puff pastry with slightly tart, slightly sweet creaminess and juicy sweet mangoes…..a breathtaking combination.
The BF said it was terrible, so terrible in fact he refused to let me have a tiny bite off his pastry, for “my own good”. Took me for a fool? Men!

Awesome post and the other day I was in mydin, i saw those creme puffs you were talking in this and previous post. I took it and walk around with it and then I realize I don’t have an oven… LOL!

Yah it’s terrible, you shouldn’t eat any more…give them all to me :D
Mmm…I would really love to taste this, my baking facilities at home is practically non-existant so I can’t do any of this. Mango and cream cheese, what more can you ask for? :D
get an oven HB!!!

thank you :)
Marvelous….Kim – where did u buy de puff pastry??
i got them from cold storage. they’re locally made and 1/4 the price of the imported ones. it’s Kawan brand & you can see the packaging at this post. Cheers!
I think buying the ready-made puff pastry does save so much of time in making a dessert and with mangoes added, a delicious dessert for sure.
they do! i love them, they have recently become one of those permanently stocked items in my pantry :D
A dust of icing sugar over the mango making it prettier. Or drizzle melted chocolate over the mango, kicking up the sinfulness a notch. Yummy. :p
Love those ready made puff pastry.
Thanks for the icing powder tip! I’m not very good with making my food look pretty lol
Very nice! Lovely photos
Nice and simple, love it!! Haha, your bf so cheeky ;) Oh how I miss mangoes…..mangoes here no smell one. And canned ones taste like bad peaches :(
Aww, but you get to have abundance of other fruits like berries and stuff at cheap! I’d kill for that too!
looks so easy in your hands. But if I were to try this, I guess it may not even turn out edible at all!
Seriously Isaac, it is EASY! haha
