Mango Pie

Mango Pie
I had been wanting to make pies for a very very long time. A couple of years I should say. Though a lot of our fellow foodies baked mouth watering pies and tempted me into the verge of trying them out, I used to shy away at the last moment. Pies seemed too complicated. Then, Meeta announced MM-Big Birthday Bang and I had to make something for this lovely lady who has such a passion for photography and shares her wonderful talent with the rest of the world. You might be wondering about this last minute rush. But my days have been packed with activity lately, as I am leaving to India on a short trip for my sister’s wedding. Yet, I couldn’t contain myself from wishing Meeta and here I come with a Mango Pie to the party. I finally conquered my fear about baking pies! 🙂 It’s a simple no fuss recipe. I found the recipe for the graham cracker pie crust from the Internet and modified Paula Deen’s sweet potato pie recipe.

Here is my version:

Graham Pie Crust:

30 Graham Crackers
Butter – 3 Tablespoons
Sugar – 1/4 Cup

Crush the crackers to a coarse mix. Add sugar and mix together. Melt butter and add it to the cracker and sugar mixture. Knead with hand to form a rough dough. Press into a 9 inch pie pan.

Pie Filling:

Mango Pulp – 2 Cups
Eggs – 2
Milk – 1 Cup
Sugar – 3.5 Tablespoons
Butter – 1/2 Tbsp

Mix everything together till well blended. Pour into the graham crust lined pie pan. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degree Fahrenhiet for 1hr 15 mins or till a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
