No Bake Orange Curd Creme Pie Recipe

No Bake Orange Curd Creme Pie Recipe

Every once in awhile I create a recipe that totally blows my taste buds away. 

 This is one of those recipes.

 I know a recipe is a hit when my family members comment on how good something was not long after it is all gone.  There is no better compliment than that. This is going to be another family recipe I will make again and again.
 
So I will be making this no bake orange curd creme pie again this weekend for a little family get together.

Update: I’ve been invited to join in on the Recipe Lions February Blog Hop featuring Desserts. It’s so wonderful when other foodies like a recipe I have posted! So jump on over there and show me some love by voting for my recipe! It is # 62 on the linky

 
 
 
If you’re a regular blog reader you know that I have been obsessed with creme fraiche. The last couple of recipes have either included creme fraiche or orange curd or both. 
 
I hope your enjoying them as much as I am because I believe there are a couple of more heading your way.
 
 Actually I made some lemon curd so the next recipe will be using it as an ingredient.
 
I am amazed at how wonderful the flavors of the curd and creme fraiche come together. The tart orange, the tangy creme fraiche and just a hint of sweet from powdered are wonderful together.
 
 Now add a little cream cheese and what do you have? 
 
A light and airy almost cheese cake like pie. From the title you can see that I did not call it a cheese cake. 
 
I could have called it something like a no bake Orange Curd Creme Cheese Pie. 
 
Although it closely resembles a no bake cheese cake. There is no baking involved with this recipe. A perfect dessert for those summer days when you just don’t want to heat the house up by using the oven.
 The big difference between this pie filling and a cheesecake filling is that this pie is light and airy. Not thick and dense like a cheese cake should be.
 
Below is the recipe. Let me know if you try it and how you liked it.
