    Mirj's Note:

    My daughter Adiya (Didi to her friends) brought this recipe home from a cooking demonstration at her school. Mandarin orange segments are hard to get where we live, but this pie is worth every imported can! Prep time includes fridge time.

      This was pretty good. I am not a huge fan of coconut. It did not set up very well, and sorta got messy on us when we went to serve it. Everyone still liked it. I think I'd take Twissis idea and run it through a sieve first. Thanks! Reviewed and Made for Fall 2007 PAC.

      DH & I both *loved* the combo of flavors in this Ambrosia Cream, the presentation is lovely & I suspect the addition of a bit of Grand Marnier would take our love to adoration. Unable to get prepared pie crusts here, I made a sugar cookie crust using that part of Rhubarb Meringue by WI Cheesehead. I scrupously followed the prep, even pressed the fruit thru a fine sieve to remove excess moisture & the cream mix appeared to be perfect at 1st ... but even after lengthy chilling it did not set well enough to cut intact pie wedges. This is certain to be repeated & I will prob make in individual ramekin servings or sml tartlet shells that would not need to be sliced. This is such a *yummy* dessert, Mirj. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)
