This recipe came from a deep love of Mango and wanting to find a way to work it into a cookie mixture. I found a great cookie recipe base and added my own little additions. This is a little bit of a fussy recipe but the result are extremely fluffy cake like cookies. The mango and coconut are always a magical combination. I used sliced dried mango from Whole Foods bulk section and they cooked to a perfect tender consistency. These will add a little tropical feel to these chilly December days.
I have always enjoyed cooking since I was a child. Some of my fondest childhood memories take place in the kitchen preparing meals first with my mother, and then on my own.
