Mango Pie Recipe

Mango Pie Recipe

One of the sweetest discoveries I made several years ago as a newcomer to the United States was pie. This one, a frozen treat that's easy to assemble, unites some of my favorite childhood flavors - mango, exotic saffron, and bold and flowery cardamom - with an all-American graham cracker crust.

Ingredients

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup (about 10 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups pureed or mashed canned mango (we like Swad brand Alphonso mango slices in syrup, drained)
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 (9-inch) graham cracker piecrust
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer set on medium speed to beat the cream cheese until it's fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the condensed milk, mango, saffron, and cardamom and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth and well blended, about 2 minutes more.
  2. Pour the filling into the piecrust, then cover and freeze the dessert for at least 6 hours. Defrost it for 10 minutes before serving and top with whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10.
