    Wife made me a mango pie last year for my birthday. Several chatters asked for the recipe.


    For Crust:
    2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon lemon zest
    1 stick butter, chilled
    1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening, chilled
    1/3 to 1/2 cup ice cold water

    For Filling:
    5 cups (4 or 5 large) mangoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch slices
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 teaspoon lemon zest
    2 teaspoons lemon or lime juice


    For Crust:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Prepare crust by mixing together flour, sugar, salt and lemon zest. Cut butter and shortening into small chunks and add to the dry ingredients. Mix until the dough holds together in small crumbs. Sprinkle ice water over mixture and mix until the mixture holds together in balls and press together. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll out half dough and fit into 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. Weigh down the crust with rice, dry beans, another pie, dish, or if you are fancy your pie weights and bake bottom crust until golden brown.

    My trick for pie crusts: put all the ingredients in the freezer for 20 minutes before making so they are very cold. Also weighing down the crust during the initial bake prevents air bubbles.

    For Filling:
    Mix mango slices, sugar, cinnamon, flour, zest and lemon or lime juice and pour into baked crust. Mixture should be moist but not wet. Roll out the other half of dough and fit over the pie. Crimp edges. Bake pie 45 to 50 minutes until crust is golden and filling is tender when fork is inserted.

    For the mangos, get ripe but firm fruit. If they are too ripe the pie will turn to liquid.

    [​IMG] Mango Freezer Jam
    Making this easy, no-cook freezer jam is a great way to preserve sweet, ripe mangoes for year-round enjoyment.

    I can't believe people actually use Manwich when sloppy joes are so easy to make.

    My Mom always made her own sauce and I've since started...basically mixing up ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, BBQ, maybe some Heinz 57...basically mixing it to taste. We'll also add a little vinegar for bite. And add onions to the meat as it browns.

    Sloppy Joes can be made with common kitchen ingredients but there's an easy recipe in the GatorChatter Cookbook.

    I would advise that anyone making the Sloppy Joe recipe make it just like the recipe the 1 st time. With the ketchup and yellow mustard it has bite but you might want it more soupy , just add a little more ketchup .
