Very good, with a very good orange taste. The orange zest can be little bit sour, so maybe next time I´ll use little bit less. A very nice change from the lemon pie!

Yummy yum yum!! This was really really easy to whip up. It was all I could do to keep from eating the pie filling straight out of the pan!I used Recipe #129580 for the meringue. It did weep but only a little bit and it was orange colored so it looked like it was planned! LOL
