Mango Pie

Our Neighbor's Mango TreeAs many of you know, we’ve been on a quest to figure out what to do with all the mangoes we have. About a week or so ago we wondered “what would mango pie taste like?”.  So, we looked up a couple of recipes, took note of what we liked and added a few ingredients of our own. The pie came out great! Now that we’re making three more I figured I should share the recipe with ya’ll.
