This is one of Pete Luckett's recipes. He is the owner of Pete's Frootique here in Halifax and his recipes are usually very good. Have not tried it yet but want to post it for safe keeping. It does not state the number of servings so I am guessing at 4. Also feel that fresh peaches could be subtituted for the mango. Preparation time does not include chilling in the fridge.
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon cognac
- 1 teaspoon melted butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar, fine if possible
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
- 2 cups mangoes, cut in bite-size pieces and drained
