Mango Butter Squares

15 Jan

I LOVE mango butter and have been exploring ways to use it. The brand I have is American Spoon and it is special! These are good room temperature or warmed slightly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Time: 1o min prep, 20 min cook           Serves: 9


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter, room temp
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp orange zest (fine)
  • juice from 1/2 a medium juicy orange (about 2 tbsp+)
  • 1/2 cup mango butter

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8×8 pan.
  • Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, orange juice and zest to butter mixture. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet, stirring to incorporate. At this point, if the dough is too sticky to handle, refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
  • Press 2/3 of dough into pan. Spread mango butter over it evenly. Top with remaining dough – either grate it over or crumble it. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (the mango butter will be sticky and might get on the toothpick but don’t let that fool you into thinking the dough hasn’t set – pay close attention). Allow to cool and cut into 9 squares – or smaller if you want.
