I love my cutie pie! Don’t you love yours?
Of course, I’m talking about this little guy, who is getting bigger every day:
But, I love my cutie pies too! Cutie pies are small, orange custard pies with gingersnap crusts, topped with candied cuties (sometimes called clementines)! If you’ve never tried an orange-flavored pie (and, let’s face it, most of us haven’t), you’re missing out. To imagine the taste, think key lime pie with a vibrant orange flavor instead of lime.
Cutie Pie Recipe
I based the pie recipe on a famous orange pie recipe (Robert E. Lee’s Orange Pie). When you Google orange pie, Robert E. Lee’s pie is just about the only thing that you can find. It’s no wonder that more of us haven’t tried orange pie; naming a pie after a general from the losing side of the Civil War is terrible branding. Let’s reclaim orange pie as cutie pie and give it some love!
