READY IN: 1hr 17mins




  • For the Crust: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Process crackers, sugar and salt in food processor until finely ground, about 30 seconds. Add melted butter (easily melted in the microwave) and pulse until combined, about 8-9 pulses. Transfer crumbs to 9-inch pie plate.
  • Using bottom of dry measuring cup or glass bottom, press crumbs firmly into bottom and up sides of pie plate. Bake crust until fragrant and beginning to brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • For the Filling:  Whisk all ingredients in bowl until fully combined. Pour filling into cooled crust.
  • Bake pie until center jiggles slightly when shaken, 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool completely. Refrigerate until fully chilled, at least 3 hours or cover with greased plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
  • For the Whipped Cream: Whisk cream, sugar and orange zest in medium bowl until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 minutes. Slice chilled pie and serve with whipped cream.
