Chocolate Mango Pie

BM # 46 Week 2 Day 2

After the hustle and bustle of Diwali and all the traditional festive desserts of Diwali, we look forward to the English desserts which are a part of Christmas celebrations.Even though we do not celebrate Christmas like it is done on the other side of the globe, I love this festival and it's feel. I make it a point to make some special desserts, and here is one which never ever fails. I know I have made a mango rose which is not a winter produce, but you could pick fruits like apple or pear, just about anything. It is just the dressing , the basic pie remains the same and as delicious.This pie is my Day 2 post under the theme Festival Recipes for Blogging Marathon  # 46.
