Mango Squares Recipe
- ¾ cup chopped dried mango
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup confectioners' sugar
- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- ½ cup chopped mixed nuts
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon lemon extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- confectioners' sugar for dusting
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with wax paper.
step 2: In a medium saucepan over low heat, place the mango with enough water to cover. Cook 15 minutes, or until soft. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
step 3: In a large bowl, mix 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the prepared baking pan to make a crust.
step 4: Bake crust 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
step 5: In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend mango, brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, eggs, mixed nuts, baking powder, lemon extract, and salt. Transfer to the prepared crust.
step 6: Cover, and bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven until filling is set. Cool slightly before dusting with remaining confectioners' sugar. Cut into squares to serve.
