Yield 1 (9-inch) pie
Orange curd can be found in the jams-and-jellies area of the supermarket.

Ingredients

  • 1 (7.25-ounce) package butter cookies, crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Orange liquid food coloring (optional)
  • 1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
  • 1 (10-ounce) jar orange curd
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • Garnishes: whipped topping, orange rind curls, almond bark curls

How to Make It

  1. Stir together cookie crumbs and butter; press evenly in bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pieplate.

  2. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes; remove to a wire rack, and cool completely.

  3. Beat cheese and powdered sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract and, if desired, food coloring until blended; fold in 2 cups whipped topping. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly into prepared crust.

  4. Stir together curd, rind, juice, and 2 tablespoons whipped topping. Spread evenly over cheese mixture; cover and chill 2 hours or until set. Garnish, if desired.
