Mango Cobbler Cookies

April 6, 2017Teresa

Mango Cobbler Cookies are awesome. If you’ve ever had a Mango Cobbler, this is the next best thing. Juicy Ataulfo mangos (my favorite kind) are mixed in a cobbler-type cookie dough. They’re a take-off on my lovely Peach Cobbler Cookies and just as delicious. This recipe doesn’t use any eggs. Instead mango-flavored Greek yogurt provides the binding agent.

I was looking through my garage refrigerator a few weeks ago and noticed I had a couple of mango yogurts and Ataulfo mangos that needed to be used up. I remembered I had this recipe and thought it might be just as good with mangos. It was. 🙂 My husband, John, likes to give homemade cookies or brownies wherever he goes so I try to keep my freezer stocked. I noticed that we had finally cleaned out most of our leftover cookies in the freezer from Christmas and needed to replenish our supplies. So coming up with this recipe was a win-win.

Do you enjoy mangos? I happen to love the things. Even dried mangos are amazing. I can easily eat one or two of these jewels in a sitting. Yes, they’re a little sloppy and juicy, but mangos are an amazing fruit. So what can be better than putting a delicious fruit in one of your favorite cookies? Not much. 🙂

If you’re on the lookout for a terrific way to use up mangos, Mango Cobbler Cookies should be on your list. While I prefer using the Ataulfo or Champagne mangos, as they’re sometimes called, regular mangos can be used too. These cookies didn’t spread quite as much as my Peach Cobbler Cookies did, so if you want a slightly flatter cookie than you can press them down lightly with a fork (criss-cross fashion) before baking.

Prepare yourself for a delightful cookie.

I used these ingredients although I only needed two mangos.

Melt butter in mixing bowl in microwave. Add sugar, baking soda, salt, mango-flavored Greek yogurt and vanilla.

Whisk ingredients to combine.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add diced mangos. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.

Spray large cookie sheets with cooking spray. With a one-quarter cup scoop, scoop cookie dough and place on prepared cookie sheets. If desired, press cookies lightly with a fork in criss-cross fashion for a flatter cookie.

Bake at 350 about 18-20 minutes or until cookies are done. If you make the cookies smaller they won’t take quite so long to bake.

Instructions
  1. Melt butter.
  2. Stir Greek yogurt and then add to butter with sugar, vanilla, baking soda and salt and whisk until well combined.
  3. Add flour and mangos and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. Scoop out dough with an ice cream scoop and place on greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350° for about 18-20 minutes or until done.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I used a ¼ cup ice cream scoop which is a lot of dough. If making regular sized cookies, this recipe will make between 3-4 dozen and you need to cut the cooking time down by half!

NOTE: You may want to lightly press the cookies down with a fork in criss-cross fashion if you prefer a flatter cookie.

    Can you substitute eggs for the yogurt? I can’t do yogurt.

      Hi Melva. I’m assuming that you can’t do sour cream either. You might be able to substitute eggs, but I think I’d substitute apple sauce or something like that instead. Whatever you use, if it’s thinner than yogurt, you might want to use a smaller amount. Otherwise the cookies might become runny and not hold their shape.

    For how many days do these stay good without refrigeration??

    1. Teresa

      Hi, Nami. Depending on your indoor temperature, they would stay good for 3-5 days. If your indoor temperature is 80 or above, I would refrigerate after 2 days.

    Do you think plain kefir would work as a substitute for Greek yogurt?

    1. Teresa

      Hi, Rachel. I believe it would. I’ve used it before as a substitute. It’s worth giving it a shot.

        Thank you 😊 Excited to make these, as I snagged a whole bagful of almost-too-ripe champagne mangos for 99 cents!

          They are really delightful cookies!

            They turned out well, thanks for the recipe! I used 3 mangos – puréed one of them and mixed it with plain strained kefir since I didn’t have mango-flavored yogurt. They turned out not too sweet, good for brunch, almost more like a scone!

            July 22, 2018 at 8:26 am

            Hi, Rachel. So glad you liked them. If you want them sweeter next time, add an additional 1/2 cup of sugar to the recipe.

  • Mango Cobbler Cookies – Batter Up With Sujata

    […] A post from “Can’t Stay Out Of The Kitchen” attract me. Pictures of this post tempted me to try it. Cookies made of very little butter and looks awesome. I have made some changes. Used whole wheat flour and oats instead of all purpose flour. Used homemade mango yogurt and made the quantity half. Taste is too good. Full of mango flavour and you will love the taste of small pieces of mango in it. Recipe credit Can’t Stay Out Of The Kitchen […]

    Pictures of the cobbler cookies are super tempting. Loved the recipe. Thanks for sharing. Wanted to try. Is it a bit soft cookies. Mine are little soft. Should I bake for some more time?

    1. Teresa

      June 1, 2018 at 1:27 pm

      Hi, Sujata. I think it depends on what you like personally. If you want them a little firmer and crispier, definitely cook them longer. My oven is a slow oven and it tends to take forever to get a batch of cookies baked sufficiently. But if you prefer a softer cookie than always take cookies out of the oven a little sooner. Enjoy.
