No Bake Orange Curd Creme Pie Recipe

Every once in awhile I create a recipe like this No-Bake Orange Curd Creme Pie recipe that totally blows my taste buds away. This is one of those recipes.

 I know a recipe is a hit when the family comments 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.

I will be making this No Bake Orange Curd Creme Pie again this weekend for a little family get together.

If you’re a regular blog reader you know that I have been obsessed with homemade creme fraiche lately. The last couple of recipes have either included homemade creme fraiche or homemade orange curd or both.
I hope your enjoying them as much as I have been enjoying them because I believe there are a couple of more heading your way.
I am amazed at how wonderful the flavors of the orange curd and creme fraiche come together. The tart orange, the tangy creme fraiche and just a hint of sweet from powdered sugar are wonderful together.
Now add a little cream cheese and what do you have?
A light and airy almost cheesecake 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 cheesecake. 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 cheesecake should be. It is very refreshing and perfect for a summer day.
