Recipe by It's loose again

I just made it up after getting a good deal on mangoes. If available, use Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum. Please, no light rums or spiced rums.

When a neighbor gave me 4 buckets of mangoes from his mango tree, he hinted that I try making a mango pie. I was hesitant because why cook and ruin a perfectly delicious sweet mango? Then I found this recipe! Everybody loved it and it exceeded my expectations. I used a Trader Joe's pie crust, less turbinado sugar for the filling the raw mangoes will be suspended in and served it with a bit of whipped cream and organic unsweetened flake coconut and it was divine ! I am making 2 more pies as we speak!
