Mango Butter Bars Recipe


I’m always looking for something new to serve for dessert, especially when I’m having guests. Summertime generally means outdoor gatherings, so dessert needs to be something simple. The following Mango Butter Bars are perfect, since they can be made ahead, and are light. They transport well, for picnics and potlucks, and have the taste of the tropics. Mangoes are available year round, however, so these luscious bars can be made anytime.

The shortbread crust is made with lots of real butter, and the mango custard topping has a similar texture to everyone’s favorite lemon bars. As a bonus, toasted coconut tops the bars.
