Mandarin Orange Cream Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
Gusty Crum never heats up her Dover, Ohio kitchen when this heavenly sensation is on the menu. That's because the pie's delightful layers of orange gelatin, creamy whipped topping and mandarin oranges rely on the refrigerator instead of the oven.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2013

I happened to have almost all the ingredients on hand for this dessert and needed something easy to fix for our Sunday dinner, so I gave this pie a try. It went together easily and fills a store bought graham cracker crust perfectly. This was an easy recipe that was cool and refreshing. Perfect for summer.
