Overly sweet and tart at the same time but had potential. With a few changes, I would rate this higher. Since most of the liquid used is orange juice, which is already sweet, I don't think a full cup of sugar is called for. Also, 4 tsp. of orange zest makes this just a little bitter. Lime juice didn't seem to complement the orange, so I substituted lemon juice. If you try this recipe, make the following changes or substitutions: 2/3 cup sugar rather than full cup, 2 tsp. orange zest rather than 4 tsp., and lemon juice instead of lime. As for the crust, I felt these changes were needed: 4 T. butter rather than 5, and only 2 T. sugar.
