I made a few small changes. I used mandarin oranges as suggested (large can), no zest and a graham cracker crust--it was what I had on hand. I also substituted 1 1/4 c. whipped cream for the 1 c. whipping cream. It cut down on time. It turned out quite nicely. I will probably be making this alot this summer. It tastes like an orange julius. Yummy. Thanks.

This pie turned out creamy, light, and delicious with just a few changes I have listed below. When made correctly, the filling should be thick enough right away when you finish making it. I will make this pie again! Here are my changes: I only used 2 eggs because 3 eggs seemed like a lot. I used the juice and zest from an entire navel orange. That is about 1 tbsp. zest and 1/2 cup juice. I added a tablespoon of flour to the mixture that I heated on the stove so that it would thicken really well. I cooked and stirred, cooked and stirred until the mixture was very thick, added the butter, and then chilled that mixture for about an hour. I used a Pillsbury pie crust instead of the type listed in the recipe because I have a lot of them in my freezer. I used mandarin orange segments, well drained for the bottom. For the whipped cream, I whipped it to stiff peaks and added some vanilla and honey for additional sweetness.

Okay, I did not actually get to eat a piece of this pie, because I made it for a church function. BUT, I did taste the "meringue" with a mandarin orange........YUM!!! Wow, this pie does taste like an orange julius. I followed the recipe to a "T" except I left out the zest and used large can (15 oz.) of mandarin oranges instead. If you use these, make sure you drain them WELL. Not just over the sink, but dump them on paper towels after that. The reason being you don't want the juice from the slivers to soak the pie crust. It would fall apart when you tried to cut it. Also, when cooking the egg/orange juice mixture over the stove, really do stir the entire time, because you have to watch carefully.....if you dont remove it at the right moment, it will be either too liquidy or you will end up with scrambled eggs. You could also save time and cost by using a storebought container of whipped cream instead of whipping it yourself........but I am partial to that "fresh" whipped taste. The presentation of this pie is awesome. Little mandarin oranges scattered across the top of the meringue, with a layer underneath you cannot see until you slice. I wish I could be at this function to hear peoples reviews, but I will definitely make this pie again for the family!
