Do you love oranges? Do you love pie? Have you ever considered making an Orange Pie?
I didn't either but when I saw a picture of an Orange Pie on-line, and loving all things citrus, I knew was going to make that pie.
When my sister gave me some oranges fresh from Florida this week, I remembered that Orange Pie. I found two recipes but this one had a cream cheese filling in it and cream cheese has never let me down.
This pie is a citrusy slice of spring! The cream cheese and oranges make such a lovely combination.Wouldn't this pie look beautiful on your Easter dinner table? And I bet most of your guests have never had Orange Pie before. It's absolutely delicious and so refreshing!
Orange Supreme Pie
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. clear-jel
1 tsp. orange Kool-Aid
3 oranges, peeled and membrane removed. Cut in small pieces and drain off the juice.
additional 1/2 cup cold water
Bring 1 /1/4 cups water to a boil. Mix together sugar, clear jel, and Kool-Aid. Add 1/2 cup cold water to the sugar mixture and stir. Pour into boiling water, stirring as it cooks. Remove from heat after it thickens. Cool completely. Stir in orange pieces.
Cream Cheese mixture:
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip
Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Add cool whip. Pour into baked pie crust. Top with orange filling.
This makes a large 9 inch deep dish pie or possibly 2 small pies.
I had extra orange filling that didn't fit in the pie so I just spooned it over my slice of pie.
