Choko Tarts

I found the original recipe (Jamaican Choko tarts) for these on Grab Your Fork.Tarts (Low Chem)

Choko Tart
  • 1 medium choko
  • 1 tspn vanilla essence
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Lemon juice substitute
  • Canola oil spray
  • Maple syrup
  1. Peel the choko and place in a saucepan covered in water.  Add the vanilla and bring to the boil then simmer until tender (about 30 minutes).  Allow to cool then slice in half length-ways, remove the stone, then cut into thin slices.  Place the slices in a bowl and mix in 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, then set aside until ready to use.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 180 C.  Spray 4 mini tart pans with canola oil spray
  3. Cut the pastry sheet into quarters and push each piece into a tart pan, trimming the edges.
  4. Place the tart pans ino the oven for 8 minutes, until the pastry is starting to crisp and puff, but hasn’t coloured yet..
  5. Layer the choko slices in the pastry, sprinkling with brown sugar and lemon juice substitute between each layer.  Put lots of sugar on top.  I got 3 layers for each tart.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.  After 15 minutes drizzle the top of each tart with maple syrup.
  7. Remove from oven, allow to cool for a few minutes, the remove from tart pans and serve hot with cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.
