"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!"

chopped dried mango
packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 cups
coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
chopped dried cranberries
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.
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.
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.
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!
Yummy! And good for you too!
Delicious! I left out the cranberries and doubled the mango though. So good!
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.
