Good texture: nice crunchy crust and topping, but they had little mango--or even peach, or any fruit--flavor at all. I used beautiful, ripe yellow (aka: champagne) mangoes which are sweet and delicious eaten fresh, but they were totally wasted in this recipe. If I did make this again I'd just use a jam or preserves such as raspberry or strawberry and forget the fresh fruit altogether. But since the Old World Jam Bars from this site that use jam are utterly fabulous, it's extremely unlikely that I'll make this again. I'm an accomplished cook and was severely disappointed in these. Cannot recommend.
This is one amazing recipe. I added a little fresh nutmeg to the crumb mixture. I did not have enough jam so added some kumquat ginger to make a cup. Did not sliver the almonds but chopped them. added lemon juice to icing instead of vanilla and only made half of the required icing. ROCKING BTS.
these were delicious. I didn't have quite enough mango so I used 1/2 peach and mango. I served them to my ladies church group and they all wanted the recipe.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.

ginger and sesame to a

Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
