Oh my PIE!

I’m in orange cream pie heaven.

This pie made me forget about chocolate pie. That’s a big accomplishment.

The flavor is stunning, I mean, look at that fresh zest.

The orange cream is light and very fresh, and has the texture of a custard. So, not too airy like a mousse can be.

This pie is unbelievably easy to make – only 5 ingredients for the orange cream. All normal ingredients that you may typically have on hand.

And using a pre-made graham cracker crust significantly decreases the amount of time spent in the kitchen. And I like that.

Topping the pie with a little bit of cool whip is a fantastic idea.

Mmmm, I can almost taste it!

Orange Cream Pie

This orange cream is the perfect custard texture. Save time with a premade crust!

Ingredients

  • Pre-made graham cracker pie crust
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the prepared crust on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the condensed milk with the egg yolks until well blended. Whisk in the lemon juice, orange juice concentrate, and orange zest until completely mixed. Pour the filling into the crust.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, just until the custard is hot. The result will be a soft, creamy filling. Let it cool slightly, then cover and refrigerate until completely chilled.

  1. This recipe sounds ok I think I will tweak it a little bit.Like substitute the lemon juice with 1/2 orange juice & 1/2 orange soda or even some cream soda.And add more orange zest & top it with whipped cream 

  2. 5 stars
    I made this before and came back to get the recipe. We loved it. I like orange a lot and so does the mother in law. Win win. I usually also serve a key lime pie in case anyone has issues with oranges. Both are easy to make.
