"The recipe does not give you directions so I continued the top 8 ingredients and put them all in the pie crust.. I did not do anything with the egg... I suppose it was for the egg wash for the crust. I didn't use it.. I baked the pie according to directions. It smelled wonderful coming out of the oven.

I will be making this again next year. It was delicious. I loved the tartness with the sweetness and the texture hat he the orange gave to the pie.
I did not make the orange whipped cream... I just used a little whipped topping.."
