In an attempt to make the most out of mango season, we found ourselves in a dilemma. We bought too much; and we had exhausted every usual way to use up the fruit. We had to think of a way to maximize what we had left before it all turned overripe. So we turned it into these easy, crumbly mango cheese bars.
Don’t be fooled by the three-step process. It might take a bit more mixing than most desserts, but we’ll happily wash more bowls for these. The combo of mangoes and cheese (cheddar and parmesan in this one) might seem a bit strange, but the sweetness of the former and the saltiness of the latter give a nice balance. That said, you can adjust the amount of cheese in either the filling or the topping (or both) to your liking.
