mango custard pie

This was my lunch the other day. True story.

I couldn’t resist it, and I figured my hour long morning walk “evened” it out.

I have to admit,  that there is a peach in this pie as well, but it’s more mango than anything- that’s why I didn’t call it mango peach pie. It would be like calling a cookie with one chip- a chocolate chip cookie. I’m sure you know what I mean. However, you can make this pie with all peaches…or even other fruits. Go ahead, get all fruity.

Another awesome thing about this recipe? It’s fast & easy. Perfect for summertime when you have the kids home & don’t have time to go “all Martha”, but you want to go “a little Martha”.

I used a pre-made pie crust, (not Martha) but, I sliced my own fruit and made my own custard & streusel. (Total Martha)

not Martha + total Martha = a little Martha.

Here is my super-duper tip of the day: Use a potato masher as a pastry blender. Makes for some perfect streusel topping.

Mmm, nothing beats that crunchy sweet buttery topping mixed with creamy custard.

Trust me. You’ll want it for breakfast. I say go ahead, it’s probably better than that doughnut anyway. 😉
