Durian pie!
 
2012-11-21 10:38:20 AM  
Mmmmmmm pie. I was wanting to make a Pecan pie, not necessarily for tomorrow, but sometime soon. Any suggestions, besides what I can find on google?

You know, I had never considered the possibility of orange meringue pie. I'd try that.

I don't want to hear some jerk saying, "Oh yes there is an orange pie, I Googled it, here is the weird recipe right here." Just because some weirdo made it does not make it a common pie.

"Why is no one making orange pie? WTF is wrong with people?"

Here's a recipe for orange pie.

"STFU weirdo!!"

I think it would be disappointingly mild. Orange chiffon pie would probably work though.
 
2012-11-21 10:46:24 AM  
I make a nice Orange Poppyseed Cake. No pies, though.
 
2012-11-21 10:48:40 AM  
Okay, so why is orange pie not popular? Anybody ever have one? I'm assuming it tastes too sweet for a pie.
 
2012-11-21 10:49:23 AM  
This one looks good, too link

The tangerines on my tree are *almost* ripe, and in about a month, my neighbors will show up with the oranges they picked but can't eat. A pie sounds like a great idea.

I'm thinking something like a key lime pie, only using orange juice instead of lime juice.

I would think too acidic.

Okay, it's actually a meyer lemon cake, but so pretty:

I'm going to say it's primarily to do with the fact that it's a citrus fruit, and there are only two really common citrus fruit pies; key lime, and lemon meringue. Both of those work because the amount of sugar you have to put in them is balanced by the extremely sour nature of the fruit. Oranges, on the other hand, are much more sweet, so I'd imagine an orange pie done in those ways would probably be cloyingly sweet.
 
2012-11-21 11:16:38 AM  
Citrus pies don't work unless they're meringue/cream based, due to the structure of the fruit. They have no structural integrity; they're either intact wedges or a mush of fiber with juice everywhere. There's not enough fiber to use them for anything except flavoring, like in key lime pie. Cooking a conventional pie with one would be pretty gross.
 
2012-11-21 11:18:48 AM  
We make Orange Marmalade instead. Rincewind53 said it, the sweetness does make an orange pie cloying. Make it with about 1/2 - 2/3 the sugar of a lemon pie. Have fun experimenting.
 
2012-11-21 11:33:13 AM  
Orange pie? Fer us'n old Florida Crackers, it's more likely than you think.

1 c. flour, self-rising
1 c. sugar
1 c. oranges
1 c. milk
1 stick butter

Think peach cobbler but made with oranges... and better tasting.
 
2012-11-21 11:56:24 AM  
Interesting, now I've found a couple of recopies I'll have to give a shot next summer.
 
2012-11-21 12:03:41 PM  
That was a weird autocorrect.
 
2012-11-21 12:22:47 PM  
This is actually a question that has kept me up at night for years.

I am not kidding. OK, I am exaggerating a bit. But I have wondered for years why there are no orange pies. I clicked the link with eager anticipation that my question would be answered, and sadly the article failed to deliver anything except validation of my question.

A CONFEDERATE ORANGE PIE?
 
2012-11-21 12:29:56 PM  
Wouldn't that be a sloppy wet mess?

Mmmmmmmmm ORANGE Pie.

Coincidentally, that's the name I used when I was a dancer at a certain ladies' club.

SHAKES TINY FIST! I've been working on inventing this!

TOO LATE AGAIN! Fark.

And where's the blue food, man? We want the blue food!!
 
2012-11-21 12:35:10 PM  
Perhaps it's for the same reason banana jam isn't all that common.
 
2012-11-21 12:35:13 PM  
We love watermelon too, yet there are no watermelon pies. That's racist?

I prefer General Sherman's smor'e recipe myself.
 
2012-11-21 12:35:59 PM  
Because it would be wrong.

I had an orange-ginger custard pie the other day. It was like sex, but I had it.

Dead for Tax Reasons: Durian pie!


My wife is Indonesian & loves durian. There is such a thing as durian pie and other durian filled pastries.
She makes durian milk shakes all the time. Any Asian owned bakery will have durian goodies(sic).

I read this exchange in Jim Gaffigan's voice, it was amusing.

/Hey buddy, I like orange pie
 
2012-11-21 12:36:47 PM  
I think a pointless tag would have been more appropriate as this was far from interesting.

FrancoFile: We love watermelon too, yet there are no watermelon pies. That's racist?


Could you even make such a thing? I mean, it's mostly water.

Perhaps you could flavor something with the juice and then bake that?
 
2012-11-21 12:36:54 PM  
Orange segments probably would not being able to hold up to the baking. They would just liquify.

I guess you could make a meringue or something.

Best comment FTA:

"I hate oranges and the first Google hit for "orange pie" is a recipe for "Robert E. Lee's orange pie," so I think we have all the arguments we need against orange pie right here.

But I do love when Jim Cooke gets drunk."

I think we have a winrar!

Nah. It burns too easily.
 
2012-11-21 12:37:36 PM  
I'm not an orange fan, but you would probably have a better shot making it into a cobbler/crumble/crisp/crunch rather than pie. It's a better way to make any kind of fruit dessert anyway.

Nah, we are talking specifically about "fruit" cake. The brick you send off to relatives around the holidays that no one ever eats.
 
2012-11-21 12:43:27 PM  
Oranges as fruits, juices and candies are one thing. Oranges as part of pastries taste disgusting.

There's a great recipe for blue waffles on the internet... but the pictures really do it justice.
