Sour Orange Pie
Making sour orange pie without sour oranges required a bit of imagination and a lot of moxie.
Why This Recipe Works
Sour oranges pack a tart punch, and their juice makes a refreshing and bright dessert when it’s incorporated into a custard pie. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to find these oranges outside of Florida and a few other tropical locations. For a sour orange pie that would be accessible to cooks in any part of the country, we made a comparable substitute for the tart juice by combining lemon juice and orange juice concentrate. An animal cracker crust provided a sweet, crunchy contrast to the creamy, tangy citrus filling.
