Summer is the season of fruits. This is the time of the year when many fruit varieties and cultivars are ready for harvesting and perfectly ripe for eating. One of my favorite summer fruits is ripe mango. This juicy stone fruit is mouth-watering, sweet, and flavorful, with a consistency of butter. This fruit has a single, fibrous, hard seed situated in the center of the fruit

How to make Mango Lemon Bars

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup diced Hale Groves Mango
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioner’s sugar for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a stand mixer, mix together butter, sugar and flour. Press into the bottom of a parchment lined 9×13 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden then remove to prepare filling.

For the Filling

  1. Add diced mango and lime juice to heavy duty blender or food processor and puree until completely smooth.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and flour to combine dry ingredients. Next, whisk in the eggs, lemon juice, ¼ cup of the prepared mango puree, and vanilla extract. Pour over the baked crust.
