How about using fresh mangoes? The market is flooded with them right now. :)

i vote for actual whipped cream rather than cool whip. why take those nice fragrant mangoes and alter the flavor with synthetics?

Hi, Guys..and Gals...This is my first day here, and already I'm thinking I can do things, like Mango Pie better.
Rodney S looks too big to make mad at me, but I have my own mango pie, that will knock your socks off. Not bragging, mind you, but sometimes I'm really good.
Mango pie, or mango cobbler, as I call it, is from some of my own recipes from when I was living in Mexico full time. And living in Mexico, where you just can't run to the store and buy things, like cream cheese, Koolwhip, or pie crusts, you learn to do and make things, that you never dreamed of when living in the States. But...you can walk outside and pick mangoes off your tree or your neighbors tree, when in season. One large mango tree will usually have over a ton of mangoes on it, so the neighbor is always anxious to give them away.
Right now I'm spending my winters down there, and have mangoes, avocados, Key West, or Colema limes, mulberries, passion fruit, and a buncha other neat fruits, but now I'm just bragging.
If I'm not being too pushy, I'd be happy to post my recipe for my cobbler.

jim's Mango Cobbler/pie
5 large mangoes
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbls. all-purpose flour
1 tbl. lemon juice
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. powered cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water
2 tbls. butter

1) Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
2) In a mixing bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. Mix well.
3) Turn filling into an 8 x 8 x 2" baking pan. Dot with pieces of butter.

Make the Batter or Topping
1/2 cup all-purpose flour.
1/2 cup sugar.
1/2 tsp. baking powder.
1/4 tsp salt.
2 tbls. butter (softened)
1 egg, lightly beaten.

4) In a bowl, combine all batter ingredients. Beat with
wooden spoon until smooth.
5) Drop batter in 9 portions over filling.
6 Bake in oven for 35-40 minutes.

Really simple/easy. Also, I use a couple slightly green mangoes with the
ripe. This gives the cobbler a sweet/sour taste that's fantastic.
Originally I made a top and bottom pie crust, which is better, but I
just don't like to make crusts, for some reason...and this is easier.

That sounds yummy, and it uses fresh mangoes. I assume you can probably substitute the butter with coconut butter and the sugar with coconut sugar or other more tropical tasting sweetener. I've tried coconut sugar, it's pretty yummy.
