    Months ago, my boyfriend commented how a mango pie would probably be really good. So, for his birthday, I made him this recipe. It was a good pie, but I'm giving it four stars only because it was just what we expected. It was a pie just like your average apple or peach pie that happened to taste like Mangoes. It was good and everyone enjoyed it, but it's nothing exotic. I would definitely make it again though because 1) it was tastey and 2) the crowd really loved it because they'd never had a mango pie. The green mangoes were really easy to fine ($1.09 a piece in California) and 8 of them filled it way up, which is what I like. I made homemade crust because I think it's better and cut a petal design on the top. Great with vanilla ice cream! Oh, make sure to put a cookie sheet under this one- juices spilled all over my oven!  -  20 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I was excited to see a recipe for green mangos. We have a beautiful mango tree, and welcome recipes to use the fruit in unique ways. The pie was great. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the use of the nutmeg in the recipe. I love nutmeg, but it certainly overpowered the the mango flavor. Perhaps 1/4 TSP of the nutmeg might have been better. Or another spice and/or flavor.  -  27 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Absolutely love mango pie! Reminds me of Hawaii - boy do I miss having a mango tree. Since it's hard to find green mangoes now, I use ripe but firm mangoes for this recipe. Usually 4 large mangoes is plenty. I also substitute cinnamon instead of nutmeg. Hot out of the oven with a dollop of vanilla ice cream is the ultimate!  -  02 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
