"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."

"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."
