we baked a pie...citrus crush


Brayden has been learning how to cook and loving it!  his favorite thing might be learning to cut vegetables, but he sure does love his sweets.  so we made our take on a dreamsicle and we think it's amazing!!!  so, here are the details...


3/4 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice

2 eggs

1/4 cup soft butter

1/4 cup flour

2 cups granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

3 tsps of orange zest

preheat oven to 350.  combine dry ingredients 'til thoroughly mixed.  add wet ingredients 'til combined.  we used a hand mixer and liked it best!  pour into your favorite pie crust and bake for 45 mins or set.  while that is cooking, make the topping and refrigerate.  once the pie is ready, refrigerate 'til cool.

1 pint of heavy whipping cream

2 cups of powdered sugar

1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice

1 Tbsp of orange zest

beat cream and sugar 'til thick, about 10 mins, fold in orange juice and zest.  once the pie is cool, add topping and fresh blueberries.  if you can't wait, go ahead and eat it all or let it set over night and enjoy!!!!!
