Strawberry Mango Pie

Strawberry Mango Pie

Originally from and then much improved upon here. So much so that I hope to avoid any copyright infringement.

  • 2 mangos - peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1/8 cup apple juice (I juiced my own (pink ladies) and strained it)
  • 20 fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon Corn Starch Mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a mixing bowl in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. Place the mangoes and apple juice in a sauce pan; simmer over medium-low heat. After 4 minutes, stir 1/4 cup honey into the mangoes. Add the strawberries and the corn starch/water mixture. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer until fruit softens and the sauce thickens about an additional 3 minutes. If you cook it too long the fruit will lose a lot of it's fresh appeal.
  3. Place the butter into the chilled mixing bowl, and cut into small pieces. Combine butter with the remaining 1/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Use your fingers or two forks to mix the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture becomes coarse textured and crumbly. Refrigerate until needed.
  4. Pour the mango mixture into the prepared pie crust. Spread the crumb mixture evenly over the top of the fruit.If the Mixture has too much moisture it will make it difficult to eat so scoop some of the liquid out of the pot with the fruit.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool at least 30 minutes before serving.
Now that last step is probably the most difficult step of all, the wait... ... ... ...
And all the adjustments are what I am going to try next time since when I cook something new I tend to follow the recipe fairly closely. All that said and done this pie was friggin amazing. I mean like WOW. So while the fruit is fresh go out and get you some and turn it into a pie.

I still have some in my fridge but I guarantee it will disappear soon. Like as soon as I get home.
