This pie was a huge hit at our family birthday party! Everyone loved it and also commented on how pretty it was. The glaze was so pretty at the end that I did not garnish w/ reserved mango slices or extra nuts, it was so pretty just as it was. I found mango nectar at the store, so used that instead of the peach. I also forgot to get macadamia nuts, so used both hazelnuts and almonds in the crust. The crust was definitely a drier pastry dough than I'm used to working with when making a pie, but it turned out very nice. After rolling it out, it was too dry to be able to transfer as is to the pie plate, so I took small pieces and pressed them into the pie plate. It worked fine and the end result after baking and filling was yummy. A wonderful pie and we all enjoyed it immensely, sadly, there's not much left over to enjoy tomorrow! I'll have to get up early and have some for breakfast!
I made this pie as directed. Buddha says it's perfect (as he went for his 3rd slice)! He loved the blend of flavors from the mangos and peach nectar. He also comments that it has just the right amount of cream cheese and loves the nuttiness the macadamia nuts bring to this dessert. I felt it was good, but a bit too sweet. If made again, I would use less nuts in the crust as I felt it gave me a dry taste in my mouth. I will say that the orange peel really enhances the glaze and that this dessert brings a nice flavor to the table and it's a wonderfully unique way of using fresh mangos.
