  2. Bake at 350 till bubbly, about 45 minutes.

I added 1/4 cup spiced rum and only put in 1/4 cup of the orange juice. I also added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the orange flavor was a little strong, I think next time I will not use the orange zest.

This is a wonderfully easy pie. Couldn't find the jarred mincement so I used two packages of the 9 oz. Borden's None Such and made a 10". Have a customer who craves this once a year. Thanks.

Try adding a small flat can of crushed pineapple drained well. It adds a little something. As does a drop or two of rum.
