My neighbors gave me a lot of tangerines, and I picked this recipe to get rid of some. YUM! I took the pie to the same neighbors for New Years, and we all thought it rated five stars. Any kind of topping would be overkill.

I don't know if I did something wrong or if the instructions just weren't detailed enough but I thought it tasted awful. All I could taste was the egg. The recipe called for 4 large eggs but I only had Jumbo, so I used 3. Maybe I should have used 2. Also, there was no picture or description of the finished product so I didn't know what it was supposed to look like when done, but mine looked very dark brown. I'm glad I tasted it before anyone else.
