MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2013

"The mandarin oranges really make this recipe good. It's not a very sweet dessert- I think maybe next time I'd add a bit of sugar. Although the crust was good, I think that a Nilla wafer crust would actually blend better with the flavors than a graham crust."

"Does anyone think that 'cool whip' type product could be used instead of evaporated milk?My family does not care for the taste of it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2008

"I used a regular crust, rather than graham cracker, and it was fine. I also reduced the amount of evaporated milk because I think it often tastes strange in fruity pies."
