Absolutely fabulous. I used a pie pan that was too big so I had extra filling which I cooked on the side in a little dish. I'm eating it as I type and it's not even chilled yet. I love it. Thanks. Read More

To be fair I don't know if I did something wrong but I followed the recipe exactly. When it was time to eat my husband and I couldn't even eat a forkful. It had a horrible strange smell. Read More

I'm surprised at the negative review. I loved this. It is certainly different from the typical mango dishes but was very tasty. I used mango from a jar and lime juice from a bottle but it was still good! Read More

After the mango has been pureed with the milk it and all the other ingredients can be mixed in the pie dish-- a big plus in my tiny kitchen! I used a thick blueglass pie dish and no crust which makes for a very moist custard. The bit of lime really enhanced the mango. The flavor was a little milder than I was expecting but still very tasty. Kids might want something sweeter but this is just the thing for those coffee-and cravings. Read More

So simple and easy to make - and it tastes delicious! This recipe is a keeper. In case you don't have evaporated milk on hand you can substitue cream or make your own. I reduced about 2/3 cup of 2% milk to the 1/4 cup it called for by simmering it on the stove. Just be sure to stir frequently. Read More

Living in the kingdom of fruits Taiwan I am lucky to have sweet fresh and very good quality of mangos. Since the mango is so fresh I didn't use any spice and hoped to get the original mango fragrance. Unfortunately the natural flavor and fragrance were gone after baking. The custard became very plain I have to say. As a result I topped the pie with more diced fresh mango and it turned out not bad. It's important to keep this pie in the fridge at this hot summer. Or the custard will turn too soft and the mango will collapse down. Read More

Recipe as written makes enough for two pies. I poured mango puree through a fine mesh strainer to remove fibers. I subbed condensed milk for the canned milk. Really good flavor. Will be making this for the holidays. Read More

OH Yes but of course it was superb as any mango dish I have eaten. Simply delightful the milk and lime juice reminds me of the south american drinks I recently experienced. I love cinnamon so the 1/2 cup cinnamon was a wonderful surprise. Thank you Mrs. Evelyn Read More

This was good. I didn't use a crust (personal preference) and I used 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg because I didn't want the cinnamon to be too overpowering. I found that it didn't set in 30 minutes. It's probably my fault because I used mango pulp from a can. Maybe pulp is thinner than puree. Not sure. I had to keep mine in the oven for close to 50 minutes. I ate it the next day and I was impressed. I think I'll make this again. Read More
