Mango pie is a classic Indian dessert made from the tropical fruit mango, which is considered to be the king of fruits in India. You can either use a fresh mango or a can of mango pulp that is available at any Indian store. It has a smooth, creamy texture and the pie crust adds a crunchy, cookie-like taste. The color of the pie is an appealing orange and yellow. Preparation is hassle-free and gives a perfect amount of sweetness and delight compared to other desserts. In addition, it’s a chance to try a dessert from another culture.



Ingredients Needed:

1 fresh mango or 1 can of mango pulp (from Indian store)

3 packs of plain gelatin

16 ounces of sour cream

8 ounces of cream cheese

1 cup of sugar (you can also use a half cup of sugar if you prefer less sweet)

3 cups of boiling water

3 Ready-Crust Graham pie shells (from any supermarket)

1 can of whipped cream

3 slices of mango


Instructions:

  1. Pour three cups of boiling water into a pot and then mix the three packs of plain gelatin into it until it fully dissolves.

  2. Next, blend 1 cup or half a cup of sugar with the required amount of cream cheese into the mix. You can either use an electric mixer or a spoon, but make sure it blends properly.

  3. Then, add the required amount of sour cream to the mixture.

  4. Add a fresh mango or a can of mango pulp and make sure everything blends well.

  5. Then, pour the mixture into the Ready-Crust pie shell one by one until they are filled to the top. You will have a total of three pies.

  6. Then, place the pies in the refrigerator and let them sit for 2-3 hours maximum.

  7. Once your mango pies are ready, serve with whipped cream and one mango slice on top to make it more delicious and attractive.
