I know I’m using mangos in the wrong season, but after this recipe, I am down to only 1 jar left of my Trader Joe’s mango sauce. 

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of mango puree **
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger

**My cookies weren’t too heavy on the mango flavor.  I think next time, I’d either double up on the mango puree or I’d add chunks of mango to the cookies.

DIRECTIONS: Pre-heat your oven to 350.  Mix all the ingredients together.  Using a medium scoop, put about 1.5″ between the cookies (or a perfect 12 per sheet). 

Before you put in the oven, gently press the cookie down with a flat bottom (I like to use the bottom of a drinking glass).  When you press down, do it quickly and put sugar at the bottom so then when you press down on the cookie, the sugar stays on.

These are going to be thicker/fluffier cookies.  If you prefer thinner ones, use only 1/2 tsp of baking powder.

This makes about 40 medium sized cookies.
