Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place the butter and sugar in a food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy. Add the egg yolk, vanilla, maple syrup and mango. Whizz to blend in and chop the mango a little more finely. Add the flour and briefly blitz to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a ball. Chill for 20 mins.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll the cookie dough to the thickness of a £1 coin on a lightly floured surface, then cut out biscuit shapes with a 10cm cutter for large, or a 5cm cutter for smaller cookies.
  3. Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment, and cook for 12-15 mins or until lightly golden and firm. Remove and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  4. If decorating, mix the icing sugar with the mango juice to make a runny icing. Drizzle or spoon the icing over the biscuits, then add the sprinkles if using, and leave to set. Will keep in a biscuit tin for up to 1 week.

Not so good...
More like a shortbread than a cookie! Crumbly consistency, buttery taste...the chewy mango pieces and mango icing were good though.

Quite good biscuit, but I did not chop up the mango enough - my roughly chopped was too roughly chopped. This became very very chewy after cooking. I would try this again but would use a bit more finesse.

These were delicious. I bought a pack of dried mango and when I checked the recipe it was half the amount needed. I used one pack and the amount of mango was fine. Dried mango is quite expensive so I think the 100g recommended in the recipe is a bit extravagant.
