"This is a fresh cookie that I go for when I don't want the old standby chip cookies. A little lighter than most, and almost cake-like in the middle. They go really well with a pina colada or any other fruity drink for that matter!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped dried mango
packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 cups
coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
chopped dried cranberries
I thought these were great cookies! I used a bag of dried mango/pineapple/papaya that i had left over from something else, in place of just the mango and i did not use dried cranberries. They were really good. I needed to cook them more about 16 min than 10 min but not a big deal. It takes time to wait for them to cool before you can take them off, so make sure you have time to finish them before an event.
The base for the cookie is pretty good, although I don't know that I would use Crisco again. I thought the macademia nuts kinda tasted like peanuts, which made them seem a little wasted to me, since eating them plain tastes very little like peanuts. I couldn't really taste the mango. I think these cookies are a lot like the chewy coconut cookies, only with more work. As I said, the base to the cookie is very good, but I would tend to leave out everything but the coconut.
Not bad at all. I subbed 1/2 cup applesauce for the shortening -- texture was perfect -- and reduced the white sugar to 1/4 cup (next time, I might reduce the brown sugar instead, to 1/2 cup, since I feel like a mango cookie should be a little lighter-colored than these turned out). Also doubled the mango, and left out the nuts and cranberries; next time I might add even more mango, since the bites that didn't have any were not terribly interesting. Finally, like other reviewers, I had to bake for 15-16 minutes, even though my cookies were small enough that I got about 4.5 dozen out of the batch.
I needed to cook a little bit longer, & would probably add more mango the next time but other wise a GREAT cookie! Different & easy to make!
I read here that somebody exchanged the shortening for applesauce - so, I decided to try exchanging it for pureed mango. I added a little bit of coconut oil, as well. BEAUTIFUL!
Delicious! I left out the cranberries and doubled the mango though. So good!
Yummy! And good for you too!
Not worth the work! Unfortunately, these were a lot of work and nobody enjoyed them. They were very cakey and the mango flavor just didn't come through. We will not be making these again.
