Yes, it's official. We've moved to our new home and Myke and I had been playing house for a few days now :P I haven't taken pictures yet but I will be posting it soon! The few days before Christmas, Myke and I had been busy organizing and shopping for other household stuff. I barely had time to visit the market for items I'd be using for our Noche Buena. I was planning on cooking a few dishes but apparently, hubby is content with just some ham, bread and hot choco for Christmas. But being the "show-off" that I am (he he he), I decided to make dessert.
Prior to Christmas, I've been compiling recipes from Home Cooking Rocks that I wanted to try out (with hubby as my guinea pig). Since I was already pressed for time, I decided to make Mango Royale. Thankfully, the wet market is in walking distance from our place so I was able to buy some ripe mangoes for the pie.
The result? Fantastic! Though I probably had gone overboard with the crust. I added more butter and the crust was a tad bit too firm. But despite that, the huge chunk I shared with my in-laws was a hit. My sister-in-law kept asking me the day after Christmas if there are any more Mango Royale :P I had to tell her that the remaining slice at the fridge has been reserved for Myke who polished it off right off the pan!
