The refreshing hint of citrus in Tangerine Chess Pie tempers the overt sweetness of traditional chess pie.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°. Unroll piecrusts; stack on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-inch circle. Fit piecrust into a 9-inch pie plate; fold edges under, and crimp. Prick bottom and sides of crust with a fork. Bake 8 minutes; cool on a wire rack 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°.

Step 2

Whisk together sugar and next 8 ingredients until blended. Pour into prepared piecrust.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 40 to 45 minutes or until center is set, shielding edges with foil after 20 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Cool 1 hour.

Easy & So delicious! Have made it several times for many reasons, I have a huge Tangerine tree and it is a great way to use the juice and it is yummy, my whole family enjoys it. It is worthy of special occassion.

Filling is outstanding. Would be delighted if I saw this on a restaurant menu and tasted the result. Super easy too. Made with homemade crust and baked it partially before filling. Crust came out tough. Next time I'll try baking the crust along with the pie without any pre-baking.
