Hello! I'm Trish from Spoonful Of Butter and I'm excited to share another guest post recipe today. After a very hot summer, we're starting to feel the cool, crisp air, and see lots of pumpkins, apples, and pears. This also means it's now okay to turn on the oven (because who would want to bake on a hot summer day?) and start the baking season!

If you love mangoes then these mango walnut squares are the perfect dessert for you. This recipe uses dried mangoes so you don't have to worry about getting fresh ones during the height of fall or winter – also a great dessert to make when you're looking for tropical flavors while waiting for summer to come back.

Dried mangoes are widely available in local groceries and bulk food stores. I might be biased but dried mangoes from the Philippines are the best out there!

P.S. Just like lemon squares, dust the tops with powdered sugar. I totally forgot to do that before taking photos, so go ahead and sprinkle some sugar love!

Delicious Mango Walnut Squares




Yield 12 bars

These yummy mango walnut squares are simple and delicious! Dried mangoes make these bars tasty and chewy, while walnuts add an extra nutty flavor and crunchy layer of texture. 


For the crust:

  • 250 grams (2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 60 grams (1/2 cup) confectioner's sugar/ powdered sugar
  • 226 grams (1 cup / 2 sticks) butter

For the Filling:

  • 500 ml (2 cups) water
  • 200 grams dried mangoes
  • 31 grams (1/4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) granulated white sugar
  • 150 grams (3/4 cup)  light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 120 grams (1 cup) toasted chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Grease and line a quarter sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Make the crust. Combine the flour and powdered sugar and pulse a few times. Add the butter then pulse a few more times until a soft ball of dough is formed. Flatten the dough with floured hands and press it into the baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until very lightly browned.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Boil the water in a saucepan. Add the dried mangoes and cook for 10 minutes or until soft. Drain the mangoes and roughly chop them.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla extract, white sugar, brown sugar, and chopped mangoes. Add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined.
  6. Pour the mango mixture over the baked crust and spread evenly. Top with walnuts.
  7. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the center is set but not hard. Be careful not to overbake.
  8. Let it cool completely before slicing them into 2x2 in (5 x 5 cm) squares.
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
