Frozen Mango-Cream Cakes

These chilled treats may bring back memories of chasing down the ice cream truck. Sweet mango joins tart citrus and rich cream in this inspired frozen mousse that's set atop a buttery macadamia crust. The resulting dessert will make kids and adults alike come running.

    This is good, but not amazing--more sherbet-like than creamy. There is no was the crust needs to cook for twelve minutes; mine was quite overdone at ten. I used a 10" spring form pan and increased the recipe by half, which was about right. I was really looking forward to this, but I don't know that I'll make it again.

    These are delicious! My boyfriend just loves these. It does require a lot of dishes (food processor, mixer, blender, among others), but it is worth it. A nice, delicate flavor, as stated below, not rich tasting; so you don't feel so guilty eating a couple!

    A wonderful easy dessert which became the family all-time favorite ! It has a great lenght in mouth, creaminess and delicate flavor. It pairs well with lime-glazed cookies from MS Baking Handbook.
