Orange and Mint Pie


Just like the classic lemon meringue pie, this is an orange pie that follows a similar pattern but with a more sweeter citrus flavour, along with the addition of mint. All these fresh flavours in a crispy and flaky pastry crust make this a perfect slice of pie!

How to make Orange and Mint Pie 

1. Start by mixing the pie dough in a bowl by adding refined flour sugar and softened butter. Incorporate them all together into a cohesive dough. Take a non-stick pie tin and press the dough into it, spread it evenly and blind bake it in a preheated 180 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Expert Tips

  1. You can use a piece of pastry to press the dough into the mould for a smoother surface.
  2. Blind baking is necessary so that the pie doesn't swell up in the main baking.
  3. It's very important to let the pie cool down before cutting into it so that it sets properly.
