Orange Blossom Pie
We love this recipe! We have made it several times, word for word followng the recipe, and it always comes out great! The key to not getting a runny pie is DO NOT FREEZE! As I said, we have made it several times, and it was always a perfect consistency, creamy and fully set. We always chilled it in the refrigerator. The last time I made it, it was last minute to bring to a cook-out. I was worried about the timing and being outside, so I froze it for a couple of hours before going. By the time dessert came around, it had thawed, and it was very runny. It was the only time I froze it, and the only time it came out runny. So, I think the key is, chill either to room temperature or in the fridge. An experienced cook at the bbq told me that dairy breaks down when frozen, so that's probably what happened, it is probably a problem with the cream. We've also tried a few variations that worked out really well - sub lemonade for oj and fresh raspberries for orange slices for raspberry lemonade smoothie pie, or mango puree for oj and any tropical fruit (bananas, mango slices, or stick with oranges) for fresh fruit garnish. I'm making one for a start-of-summer pot-luck at the office tomorrow :)
