Mango Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now here’s a cookie that needs some work. Don’t get me wrong, they were very tasty, but this is the first time I “invent” a cookie and I wasn’t very satisfied with the results. They were kind of soft and a little chewy. Maybe because I used a “fresh” mango that wasn’t very fresh (that’s what I get for buying mangoes in October!). I will have to try next time in the summer with good and juicy mangoes. Anyway here is what I did:

  1. Very cool Ben. I can’t wait to play with these. I just saw some mangoes that looked good at the market but I’ll have to wait until next Thursday to get them!

  2. Hey don’t be that hard on you, Ben! The cookies look yellow, but nice… he, he just kidding! I’m sure they tasted super!!! This is the way to learn, try, fail, try, fail, try, EXITO!!!!! :D

    Have a great weekend querido :D

  3. The cookies were probably delicious Ben..but maybe not quite what you were expecting. They do say practice makes perfect!!!!

  4. They look good to me Ben…I like all kinds of cookies (soft and chewy and the crispy, crunchy kind!)

  5. They look excellent Ben! Well done for adding mango – I’d never have thought of that!

  6. What an interesting idea of flavor. I bet the fruit & chocolate is wonderful together.

  7. A realy creative recipe.
    I was curious when i read the tittle, I love mangoes in season :-) so i am sure i will love this cookiee too

  8. I loved the sound of these, mango & chocolate are a great combination, the juicy fruity against the rich chocolate. I spend a lot of time developing recipes and urge you to keep going to perfect this one – its a winning combination for me.

  9. Ben, I like your adventure and the pairing here. The fresh mango could be the cause of your soft cookie. Here in the Asian markets, there are some vacuum-sealed, firmer mango slices which have less water, more concentrated and quite tasty.

    Perhaps these will do the trick? In the meantime, enjoy the cookies!

  10. Here’s a suggestion for you…how about grinding up dried mangos? You’d get the essence of mango with the wetness.
