This is traditional pumpkin pie...with a twist! I like the zesty orange taste of the sour cream topping paired with the pumpkin custard. When I serve this pie, there's never any left, so you might want to make two!—Joan Bingham, Cornwall, Vermont

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)

  • 1-1/4 cups sour cream
