I buy a large crate of oranges every winter. This is one recipe that my mom and I make to use them in. Has such a fresh, sweet citrus flavor that is very delicious. Adapted from Southern Living.

NurseDi thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. It makes a lovely pie. Light and creamy, with chunks of orange and a hint of coconut. I will be making this very refreshing pie often during the summer.
