Deep Dish Mango Pie

by Permanent Posies on February 6, 2012


My husband had a birthday last week.  He is really old…..haha.  My, my, my……he can walk in the door after work and my heart skips a beat……after all these years.

This week, we celebrated the anniversary of our first date….36 years ago.  That was on February 2nd and I love to hear him tell the story of the first time he laid eyes on me in Chemistry Lab.  It took him 6 months to get me to go out with him, but that first “study date”, I knew I wanted to marry him.  I have been cooking for him every since. 

I asked him what birthday dessert he wanted this year and he said……Mango Pie.  I should have known that by now.  When we were young, he would ask for a Black Forest Cake.  Then, for a few years, he would ask for this awesome dessert called a Fantastic Dessert (kind of a pudding cake).  But every since he tasted Grady Spears Mango Cobbler, it is his favorite.

So here is my version. 

Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Susan Root Merritt
  • About 3.5 cups of mangoes….5 ish
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar (cut this down to 3/4 cup for a lower sugar pie)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 2 pie crusts
  1. Peel and slice about 5 mangoes.
  2. Mix the mangoes, flour, sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Lay out a pie crust in a pie plate.
  4. Pour the mango mixture in to the pie crust and dot with 1/2 stick butter.
  5. Top with other pie crust. Crimp edges and cut a couple of slits in the top.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cover with foil for the first hour and uncover the last 15 minutes.

Claudia February 9, 2012 at 1:04 PM

I love mango pies too. Here we make them with fruit on the tart green side of ripe. Baking seems to concentrate the flavor. Also delicious in Dutch Babies.

I never thought about using mango in a pie! Yours looks absolutely scrumptious. I like the idea of adding the cinnamon too.

Alea Milham February 13, 2012 at 11:43 PM

I have never had a mango pie, but it sure looks delicious! I will pick up extra mangoes next time they are on sale.
