easy to make but because of the nutmeg and cinnamon used on the mangoes, it tastes more like apple bars. I think next time I would omit the 2 ingredients mentioned.

This is very much like a mango cobbler except softer crust. I like it ok, but I omitted the cinnamon and nutmeg since most reviewers said it made it taste like apple cobbler. This is very easy...

I omitted the cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzled the top with honey instead. I also made a side crust and made the dish more of a shortbread tart than bars. Make sure to spread the shortbread out ...

The mango is very mild in this recipe. I think that is the nature of Mango when you cook it. The shortbread is moist as opposed to the dry shortbread. I had never had moist shortbread before...
