Bought too much durian or find it too daunting? This Hokkaido Cheese Tart with Mao Shan Wang Durian puree is the recipe for both camps. The unique sweetness durian complements the gentle richness of cream cheese, giving the tarts a fluffy, indulgent but not jelak finish.
Use your favourite type of durian, D17 or XO, go big or go home.
This healthier recipe uses half the regular serving of sugars, gotta save the calories for all the durian, right?
