We made 3 pies for Thanksgiving and this was the favorite. We LOVED the orange-flavor in the crust, and echoed in the pumpkin filling. The crust and the bourbon whipped cream really make it though. Can't say much more, this was really a taste sensation. I have never had orange in a pumpkin pie like this and it is terrific. Highly recommended.
