Peach mango pies are pocket pies made of crispy, flaky pastry with a sweet and scrumptious peach and mango filling. Have them for breakfast, as a snack, for dessert. You’ll be hooked.
Peach mango pies are one of my favourite things to order at Jollibee, a popular fast food chain in the Philippines. They’re crunchy, filled with delicious peach and mango filling, a great end to a Jollibee feast.
Jollibee peach mango pies are deep fried though and since I’m not a big fan of frying (fear of hot oil, long story), I developed a recipe that’s baked not fried.
And since I’m slightly, sort of, medyo a lazy baker, I use ready-made, all-butter puff pastry. No stressing about dough or pie crust. Easy-peasy.
Now I can make delicious Jollibee-style peach mango pies at home anytime, and you can too.
Why you’ll love making peach mango pies at home
- Quick and easy. My recipe uses frozen puff pastry so we don’t have to deal with making the crust ourselves. And it’s very simple and straightforward to make you’ll be done and enjoying your homemade pies quicker than the drive to and from your nearest Jollibee (at least for us).
- Baked not fried. I also bake the pies and not deep-fry them. According to the Jollibee website their peach mango pie has 270 calories each while these homemade ones only have an estimated 32 calories. And don’t worry, these pies are still crispy even though they’re not fried!
- Cheaper to make. It’s cheaper to make too. At $2.99 per piece (as of this writing), if I wanted 10 (which is what this recipe yields), I’d have to shell out almost $30. The cost of the ingredients is way lower than that.
- Delicious. Most importantly, it’s so good! The actual Jollibee peach mango pie recipe is a heavily guarded secret but this comes so dang close. You’ll want to make it all the time.
For this recipe, you’ll need:
- Canned peaches in light syrup – I’ve seen jarred peaches in Costco and those will be great too.
- Mangoes – fresh or frozen will work.
- Brown sugar
- Ground cinnamon
- Vanilla extract
- Frozen puff pastry – I always buy from the store but you can totally make this from scratch if you like. If buying ready-made puff pastry, always opt for the all-butter kind.
How to make (with step-by-step photos)
Making these pies couldn’t be easier. First, make your pie filling.
Peach and mango filling
1 COMBINE. In a medium-sized saucepan on medium heat, stir peaches, mangoes, peach syrup (from the can), brown sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
2 COOK. Cook until the fruits start breaking down and the mixture starts to reduce and thicken (about 20 minutes). I like to help it along by squishing the fruit as I’m stirring. Stir often.
3 THICKEN. Once thick enough, add cornstarch dissolved in water, stir to combine, and continue to cook until you get a significantly thicker consistency. This usually only takes a couple of minutes.
4 COOL. Add vanilla, stir to combine and remove from heat. Set aside to cool.
You can make your filling the day before and keep it in the fridge. Just make sure to bring it down to room temperature before using.
Pie assembly and baking
1 PREP. Line a baking pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2 EGG WASH. In a small bowl, prepare your egg wash by beating a large egg with milk. Set aside.
3 ROLL PUFF PASTRY. Gently roll out your thawed puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. Use a rolling pin to seal the perforations and shape the puff pastry into a circle. (You can also opt to keep the puff pastry a square, see next step.)
4 CUT PUFF PASTRY. Lay a drinking glass or a cookie cutter on the dough, press firmly straight down and lift straight back up. (To simplify further, you can choose to just cut your puff pastry into rectangles like how I do it in my ube pie recipe. Just remember this will lead to fewer, but bigger, pies.)
5 PREPARE. Take your puff pastry pieces and place them on your baking sheet. Space them out evenly.
6 FILL. Scoop 1-2 tbsp of filling in the middle then place another piece of puff pastry on top.
7 SEAL. Crimp and seal the edges with a fork.
8 CUT. Using a small, sharp knife, make 2 small cuts on top of the pies so that air can escape while baking.
9 EGG WASH. Brush the pies with egg wash and, optionally, sprinkle with demerara or brown sugar.
10 FREEZE. Place the pies in the freezer while you pre-heat the oven to 375F.
11 BAKE. When ready, bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Rotate the pan midway during baking. Enjoy!
Puff pastry tips
Puff pastry is one of the things I always buy in-store. I’m not very good at making it from scratch and since I can get high quality frozen butter puff pastry at the store, that’s what I always do.
And it really is a wonderful ingredient to work with, when handled correctly. Remember:
- Thaw it properly. It usually says how to on the package.
- Puff pastry should never be warm to the touch or even room temperature. It should be pliable but still cool.
- Don’t use puff pastry too soon, example: when it’s still frozen, or it will break.
- Once you’ve thawed the sheets you can’t refreeze them so use those puff pastries up.
Easy and straightforward, right? Here are answers to your frequently asked questions to make baking these popular Filipino treats that much easier.
I prefer using canned peaches in this recipe because the flavour is stronger and more pronounced. However, you can also use fresh fruit if you like. I give options in the recipe card below.
While I love fresh mangoes, frozen mangoes are great when fresh mangoes are hard to come by. When using frozen mangoes, there’s no need to thaw them. Just add directly into the saucepan.
Yes, traditionally, Jollibee peach mango pies are deep fried. That gives them their signature crunch.
If you’re not a fan of frying like me, you can absolutely make a version of these pies that’s baked, like this recipe! I use puff pastry; they’re not as crunchy as deep fried hand pies but are still wonderfully crispy, buttery and delicious.
You can keep baked peach mango hand pies in an airtight container on your counter. It should keep for up to 3 days. To keep them for longer, you can freeze the pocket pies. See below.
Yes, you can freeze peach mango hand pies. I find that it’s actually the best way to store them.
Just cool completely then place in a freezer safe container or Ziploc bag. They should last about 2 weeks.
You also have the option of freezing unbaked pies. I haven’t personally tried it but here’s a good guide on how to freeze dough and pastries.
Left on the counter, these pies should last up to 3 days. Frozen, they should last up to 2 weeks.
Pies left on the counter will lose their crunch and need to be popped into a toaster for a few minutes.
To thaw frozen pies, warm in the microwave for a few seconds then into your oven toaster to get back that crunch.
Just remember that frozen pies tend to get stale quicker once heated a second time, so try to avoid defrosting more than you can eat immediately.
Peach mango pie Jollibee-style takes two of summer’s favourite fruits and puts them together into one delicious, mouthwatering treat. Perfect for snack or merienda, picnics, with coffee or tea.

Peach and mango filling
- In a medium-sized saucepan on medium heat, stir 1 cup peaches, 1 cup mangoes, 2 tbsp peach syrup (from the can), 2 tbsp brown sugar, ¼ tsp cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Taste and see if you're okay with the level of sweetness. If not, adjust and add more syrup and/or sugar.

- When ready, bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Rotate the pan midway during baking. Enjoy!
- The number of pies/yield depends on how you cut your puff pastry. If circles like in the photos, I can make 10 pies using a glass/cookie cutter that’s roughly 3 inches in diameter. If you choose simple rectangles like in this ube pie recipe, you’ll have enough for 6 fairly large pies.
- If you want to use fresh fruit, you can replace the canned peaches with 2-3 ripe peaches (250g once peeled, pitted, diced) and 1-2 ripe mangoes (150g once flesh scooped out and diced). Adjust the sugar content depending on how sweet your fruits are. Then cook the same way.
