Mandarin Orange Cream Pie Recipe

Mandarin Orange Cream Pie Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) orange or sparkling mandarin orange gelatin
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1-1/4 cups cold club soda
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup whipped topping
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, well drained

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in soda. Set aside 1/2 cup at room temperature. Refrigerate remaining gelatin mixture for 20 minutes or until slightly thickened; pour into crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
