Fruity, creamy and delicious this Mandarin Orange Pie is a no-bake dessert recipe that we crave at the holidays and potlucks!
Mandarin Orange Pie Recipe
Also known as Mandarin Orange Icebox Pie and Pig Pickin’ Pie this, cream pie dessert with mandarin oranges and crushed pineapple is memorable! Very similar to the icing on our Pig Pickin Cake the flavors are bright and creamy.
Our Mandarin Orange Pie Recipe is chilled and perfect for hot days when you don’t want to get weighed down by something heavy.
The sweet fruit flavors play so well with the instant vanilla pudding and are made creamy by the sour cream and fluffier by the Cool Whip. Whether you pour this concoction into a pie crust or serve as pudding with an angel food cake it’s so delicious!
Sour Cream – Makes the filling super creamy and adds just a little tang.
Instant Vanilla Pudding – I use the regular kind, but the dessert can be made sugar free by using a sugar free pudding. One big box works great, but two small ones work fine too.
Can of Crushed Pineapple – Ultra fine pieces of sweet pineapple in natural juice is my favorite flavor in this pie. Do not drain the pineapple as the juice will mix with the pudding mix to help it dissolve.
Mandarin Oranges – Pick up a can in lite juice and be sure to drain well. I like to get a bigger can and keep some to garnish the pieces when serving.
Cool Whip – Or the store brand of whipped topping should be defrosted and gently folded in until smooth and creamy.
Graham Cracker Crust – Is the easiest serving method, but enjoying as a dip with graham crackers works fine too.
How to Make Pig Pickin Pie
In a medium sized mixing bowl stir together drained mandarin oranges, sour cream, instant pudding mix and undrained pineapple.
Then add whipped topping and fold in.
Continually scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Fold the spatula into the center of the mixture gently and repeatedly until everything is the same color.
Pour into a pie crust and garnish with extra slices on mandarin oranges.
If using a purchased crust turn the plastic liner on top upside down. The inverted lid serves as a cover for the pie.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Taste best chilled!
