  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Mango Puree: In a blender or food processor, puree the diced mango until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the granulated sugar and room temperature butter until light and fluffy.
  4. Add Wet Ingredients: Beat in the egg, followed by the mango puree, lime zest, lime juice, vanilla extract, lemon extract, and orange extract. Mix until well combined.
  5. Incorporate Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to firm up.
  6. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Shape the Cookies: Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. Roll each ball in granulated sugar first, then in powdered sugar until fully coated.
  8. Bake: Place the coated dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them a few inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the tops of the cookies have crackled.
  9. Cool and Serve: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy these tropical delights with a refreshing beverage!

Cook’s Notes:

  • For the best results, use ripe mangoes for maximum flavor.
  • If the dough becomes too sticky to handle, refrigerate it for a few minutes to firm up before shaping the cookies.
  • Don’t overbake the cookies; they should still be soft and chewy in the center when done.

Variations:

  • Coconut Crunch: Add shredded coconut to the dough for an extra tropical twist.
  • Tropical Nutty Delight: Fold chopped macadamia nuts or almonds into the dough for added texture and flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

1. Can I use canned mango puree instead of fresh mango? Yes, you can use canned mango puree if fresh mangoes are not available. Just make sure it’s unsweetened and adjust the sugar in the recipe accordingly.

3. Can I omit the citrus extracts if I don’t have them? While the citrus extracts add a burst of flavor, you can omit them if you don’t have them on hand. The cookies will still be delicious with the natural flavors from the mango and lime.

4. How should I store the cookies? Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can also freeze the baked cookies for longer storage.
