Orange Pie Crust: Orange-flavored pie crust, from the recipe for Pineapple Fluff Pie in Pillsbury’s 1968 Bake Off Dessert Cook Book.; sixties; 1960s; pie crust; oranges; recipe; Pillsbury

This pie crust uses the same technique that adds vinegar to pie crust dough: a little acid makes the resulting pie shell flakier. But by using orange juice as the acid, it also makes the shell tastier. Any pie filling that goes well with orange should be a great filling for this crust. Chocolate pies, for example, or citrus-based pies like pineapple.

But what doesn’t go well with orange? Vanilla custard, pecan pies, pumpkin pies, cheese pies, this is a great choice for all of them!
