Mango pie is a great use for mangoes that are slightly underripe, too.
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 2 pie crusts (yes, I am lazy. it's okay!)
- 4-5 mangoes, sliced thinly (slightly underripe or just soft to the touch is best)
- 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (depends on how sweet your mangoes are!)
- 1 tsp cardamom
- 3 T flour
- 3-4 T butter
You'll be baking the pie at 375 F for 40-50 minutes. I find that this pie turns out best in ceramic or glass pie pans - metal tends to leave the crust too brown.
Step 2: Peel and Slice the Mangoes
Step 3: Mix the Filling
Mix everything together until there are no dry pieces of flour floating around. :)
Step 4: Assemble the Bottom Crust
Once that's done, put in a layer of mangoes and dot it with butter. Then more mangoes and more butter. Keep doing this until you're out of mangoes. :D
Then trim the edge of the bottom crust so it's even with the edge of the pan.
Step 5: Add the Top Crust
Cut a couple slits in the top crust to help release excess steam. Otherwise your top crust might rupture.
Step 6: Bake!
Tip: if you'd like a browner crust, beat an egg and brush a little of it onto the crust. (Just don't do it around the edges or they'll get too brown!) I like to sprinkle a little sugar on top too.
