Easy Thanksgiving Dessert- Orange Creamsicle Pie


I'm the queen of easy peasy when it comes to cooking and baking.  I love homemade (read semi-homemade) but I don't have the time or the energy for a super hard recipe.  I love this recipe because it only takes minutes to whip together; you could even make it the same day you need to serve it.  Just allow about 4 hours to set in the freezer.

I was looking for a dessert recipe for our Thanksgiving meal but I wanted it to have a slight twist from the traditional.  Since citrus is in season and I'm looking for any way to sneak in some extra vitamin C I wanted to create a recipe with mandarins.  I always get my citrus from Bee Sweet Citrus because they have year-round availabilty for oranges, mandarins and lemons.  They have speciality citrus varieties during the California domestic season.  Right now us locals can look forward to Meyer Lemons, Cara Cara Navels (hello gorgeous!), Blood Oranges, Star Ruby Grapefruit and Pummelos.  Another reason I love supporting Bee Sweet Citrus is because they are a family owned and operated grower, packer and shopper of citrus.  

Enjoy your sweet and delicious dessert and wishing everyone a blessed Thanksgiving!

  1. 2 blocks of cream cheese (16 oz each)
  2. 1 C. plus 2 Tbsp. of granulated sugar

  1. To make a search more comprehensive, the RCMP needs to navigate identity issues. To prevent a rap sheet polk county inmates mugshots check, some ex-convicts alter their name, get brand-new recognition, and do not notify the cops of the reality. For this reason, the RCMP checks fingerprints with those of the candidate.

  2. team basketball socks wholesale
    Any player will tell you: socks are very important. In basketball, a large number of running, sprinting and taking-offs play a protective role, not only the shoes, but also the socks. Compared with the weight of professional athletes, or the configuration of the shoes, the weight is not as good as that of others. It's not a player version either, basketball socks will give us a certain amount of cushioning and grip!

The workpiece is supported between the two centers of the head frame and the tail seat, and the dial of the head frame drives the rotation for circular feed movement. The head frame and tail seat are mounted on the workbench, and can be used for longitudinal reciprocating feed movement (see machine tool). The working table is divided into two layers. The upper working table can adjust a small Angle to grind the conical surface.
