10 Granita or other plain, sweetened biscuits
120 g (1 cup) finely chopped walnuts
50 g unsalted butter, melted
2 ripe, firm mangoes, thinly sliced, to decorate
1 tbsp powdered gelatin
60 ml (¼ cup) warm water
2 x 250g blocks cream cheese, softened
220 g (1 cup) caster sugar
4 very ripe mangoes, flesh removed and coarsely pureed
500 ml (2 cups) thickened cream, whipped to soft peaks
Chilling time: 3 hours
To make the filling, place the gelatin and warm water in a small bowl and stir until dissolved. Using an electric mixer on medium–high speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar, reduce speed to low and slowly add the mango puree and combine well. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold in the whipped cream and slightly cooled gelatin mixture. Pour the mango mixture into the prepared tin. Decorate with thinly sliced mango and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
