As promised, from the thread on recipes that we wish someone would try, I made this pie this weekend. The fluffy, light, orange filling is WONDERFUL!! But, in my opinion, the chocolate crumb crust overpowers the orange taste too much. I am going to make this pie again, but this time, I am going to try it in either a regular graham cracker crust or a vanilla wafer crust.
This was very unique and has a soft, fluffy chiffon-like texture. It also has a very attractive pale peach color and a tangy orange flavor. I enjoyed it, but not all tasters enjoyed it as well. The main issue was that the chocolate crust didn't quite compliment the filling as well as perhaps shortbread might. I usualy love a choco-orange combo, but I have to agree with the last poster on this point.
Although the flavor is good, I did have a problem getting the slices out of the plate in one piece. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game Halloween Recipes. :)
