Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:

  • 5 oz
    salted pretzels, finely crushed in a food processor
  • 1/2 c
    sugar
  • 10 Tbsp
    butter, melted
  • FOR THE FILLING:

  • 1 c
    heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 c
    powdered sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 8 oz
    cream cheese, room temperature
  • 6 oz
    frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • ·

How to Make FROZEN ORANGE CREAMSICLE PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. For the crust: Mix together pretzel crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake in a preheated 325º oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool completely.
  2. For the filling: Pour heavy cream into a large bowl along with 1/4 cup powdered sugar and vanilla. Use an electric mixer to beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Scrape whipped cream into a separate bowl and set aside.
  3. Without cleaning mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining 1-1/4 cups powdered sugar until smooth. Blend in orange juice concentrate and beat until well incorporated. Gently fold 1/4 of whipped cream into orange juice mixture. Repeat with remaining whipped cream, working 1/4 at a time and taking care not to overmix.
  4. Pour filling into cooled pie shell and smooth top. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving to allow to soften slightly for slicing. Garnish with fresh whipped cream, orange slices, and/or mini pretzels, if desired.
