Durian Cheese Tarts

Hi there, how are you? I've been absent for sometime, and friends have been asking why there is no new post lately..;p I did bake but all old stuffs like chiffon cake and baos. (requested by my daughter) With only 3 of us, those food need some time to finish..;)
Alright, enough for my excuses...bla bla bla..;p

Are you a durian fan? I am, and I'll go crazy with this fruit! The past 2 weeks I've been craving for durians. I just can't let it down..haha! Yesterday while my daughter and me went out for dinner at the nearest mall, I saw some durians!!! And I was like walking faster and faster to that stall, and my girl asked me "mummy why are you rushing"? I told her I saw durians!..haha! Crazy me!

After almost 20 seeds of durians, I thought of saving some for these tarts. Aren't they look lovely..;)

Transform my blueberry cheese tarts's recipe into durian cheese tarts. And top with fresh cream and durian....Wonderful!

Did a small tiny one for my girl to try. She doesn't really like durian, hopefully she'll like this.
A peep the inside of this tart, the soft and creamy fillings are just right to match with the crust pastry.

Here's my version of the fillings:
250g Cream cheese
50g Durian flesh
50g castor sugar
20g butter
1 egg

~ Beat the cream cheese, sugar and durian until light and fluffy.
~ Add in egg and beat well.
~ Transform the cheese mixture onto the baked tarts shells.
~ Bake at 180'C for 15 minutes.
~ Cool and pipe cream topping on top.
~ Chill before serve.
250g Fresh cream
20g Durian flesh
~Beat together until its almost stiff.
