Mango Pie
By Hrishikesh Hirway's Mom

Yield: 2 pies 


1 ½ cups boiling hot water
1 ½ packages unflavored gelatin
4 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. Cool Whip
16 oz. mango pulp (Alphonso if available)
½ cup sugar
2 graham cracker pie crusts


  1. In a large bowl dissolve the gelatin and sugar in the boiling water.
  2. Add cream cheese to the same bowl while the water is still hot (helps to melt the cream cheese), and then add Cool Whip and mango pulp to the same bowl.
  3. With a handheld mixer, mix the whole thing until it looks smooth and has an even color and consistency.
  4. Pour mixture into pie crusts.
  5. Refrigerate until formed (at least 3 hours). Serve and enjoy!
