Winter is one of my favorite times of the year not just because of the cold dreary weather, but it’s also when blood oranges are in season. I love using them in salads, drinks, and desserts. I can’t wait to share this Blood Orange Pie with you!
This Blood Orange Pie recipe is very similar to Key Lime Pie. In fact, the only difference is a substitution of blood orange juice instead of key lime juice. It takes just a few moments to whip up and bake. Before you know it, your mini pies are cooling in the fridge during dinner, so dessert is ready at just the right time.
This recipe makes just the right amount for six mini pies or one big pie. Once they have cooled, I put a big dollop of whipped cream on each mini pie and add a garnish of blood orange.
This pie has a delicate creamy flavor reminiscent of a dreamsicle. Sometimes Key Lime Pie can be sour and give you quite the pucker, but I’ve found Blood Orange Pie is sweeter with just a hint of sour tang. It has definitely become a favorite with my family.

Never heard or thought of making a pie using oranges. Why not people uses lemon and limes to make pies.

It sounds delicious! Thinking about how tart limes are and substituting blood oranges, it seems like a good substitute. I never would have have thought to do that. Yum!
I haven’t tried blood oranges. I am going to have to pick a few up so I can sample them.
The pies sound delicious too. Plus, i like that they are small servings too.
Dreamsicle pie sounds well, dreamy! Maybe instead of blood oranges I could use Japanese mikan / Mandarin oranges….Wondering why I didn’t think of an orange pie earlier…My lemon and lime meringue pies are favorites of my niece and sister.
Makes me crave! Wanna try it soon. Thanks for sharing.
