Mango Sawdust


 

Sawdust is a layered vanilla cream and crumbled cookie dessert from Macau. Here's my take on this classic dessert. Since it is summer, I am using fresh mangoes and ginger snap cookies, which are my favorite. This light and airy dessert is everyone's favorite, and I hope you like it too.

 

Serves: 4 

Ingredients 

 

2 champagne mangoes, peeled and chopped

1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

2 cups ginger snap cookies

  

Instructions 

In a food processor, blitz ginger snap cookies for one minute. The cookies must reduce to a sawdust like consistency, which is beyond crumble. Remove and set aside.

Now blitz chopped mangoes for one minute or until they reduce to a pulp. Remove and set aside.

Mix heavy whipping cream and mango pulp. Set aside.

I usually serve this dessert in a see through glass container (8 oz mason jar), and you will need four.

Layer each container with mango cream pulp and ginger snap cookie sawdust.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours and serve chilled.
