1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
egg yolks, beaten
grated orange zest
orange, sliced in rounds
I'm not the biggest fan of meringue so instead of using it, I placed the orange segments decoratively over the orange custard, sprinkled some suger over the top and caramalised it. A great recipe for those who have a sweet tooth
This was good but the meringue really overwhelmed the orange custard. I think next time I would double the amount of orange custard so it is a thicker pie. The filling was kind of thin and the meringue was more than twice as thick. It didn't have the orange flavor I was expecting.
this was a good pie. everyone comented on it. i do have to agree with other people that the filling recipe needs to be doubled.
This is a great pie.
I even baked it with the merangue at l0,000 feet and it turned out!! Used a graham cracker crust which turned out well. Thanks again!!
I enjoyed my pie but I did double the orange and meringue I used 6 yolks, 3/4 cup sugar, 4 tbs flour, 2 tbs butter, 2 tbs zest, 2 cup orange juice for the orange pudding. The meringue was made of 6 egg whites and 8 tbs sugar. I kept the cooking time the same but plan on covering the edges of the crust with tin foil for 25 minutes, then remove and let the pie bake for 10 more minutes. Make sure when you put the meringue on it touches the crust edges or it will shrink. The meringue was the perfect amount for me, but I love meringue.
I made the french pastry crust recipe from allrecipes and it came out thicker than I wanted but was perfect for this pie. The orange pudding was watery after setting but the thicker crust soaked it right up. I plan on baking the pie a little longer next time but the crust edges were too brown to try this time. I used honeybell oranges which are in season right now. The tart and sweet orange made the flavor perfect.
This pie was pretty good, but the layer of orange filling was too thin. If I make it again, I will probably double the filling ingredients.
I jut did not care for the taste. it reminded me a lot of chess pie. the orange flavor was just waaaaay to sweet. I am just used to having a citrus pie with a "tangy" flavor . there was nothing like this here just sweetness. will not be making again
This recipe is very easy and very good. I don't usually like meringue pies, but this one is unique and delicious. Oranges are abundant this time of year, so I was looking for something using fresh orange. This fit the bill. There is no wonder this pie recipe has been around so long!
