Wow! this was great. I changed it a little bit - brushed ladyfingers with mango nector not grand marnier and I whipped the other cup of whipping cream with a little sugar and mango nector and spread that on top the next morning after it had set. Also didn't present with the ribbon or raspberry sauce. This was enjoyed by all at my end of year luncheon at school! Very delicious. thanks for the post. ZWT 3
These are great. Though i made a lot of changes: used graham crusts, and omit grand marnier. They tasted like mango cream cheese from the store. Will definitely make them again. Thanks Rita!
Oh this was very good! And presented nicely!! Everyone raved about it! Will be making again for holidays/family gatherings. The mango nectar was in a can, I used the Jumex brand.
