Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with wax paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, place the mango with enough water to cover. Cook 15 minutes, or until soft. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the prepared baking pan to make a crust.
  4. Bake crust 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
  5. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend mango, brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, eggs, mixed nuts, baking powder, lemon extract, and salt. Transfer to the prepared crust.
  6. Cover, and bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven until filling is set. Cool slightly before dusting with remaining confectioners' sugar. Cut into squares to serve.

This recipe is especially great with dried mangoes from the Philippines! For people watching their weight, they can cut down on the butter and sugar by around 3/4 to 1/2 of the stated amount in the recipe.

Two Christmases ago my boss' daughter made these and I began to search recipes for it, alas, I found this and made a batch last night. My husband stuffed himself with several squares and saved some to take to work to boast with his co-workers! He's asking me to make some more! This is best recipe to make in the Philippines where we have tons of inexpensive dried mangoes there, and I like the way it doesn't give away the taste of mango, instead it tastes like a combination of different fruits and is chewy and addictive!

Couldn't find a dessert recipe using fresh mangos. I had two mangos that were starting to get overripe so I took a chance and used them in this recipe instead of the dried mango. The bars were actually quite good but not very mango-y like I was hoping. If I make this again I'll try a stronger-tasting fruit...strawberry, pineapple, kiwi? I liked the extra gooeyness from the fresh fruit even though it took longer to bake.
