Thanks to Dole Packaged Foods for partnering with me for this mandarin vintage no bake pie! I am the creator of this recipe and for the description and information that follows. For a full disclosure, click here!
Who doesn’t love something simple, easy and with just a few ingredients and the end result is something just spectacular! This mandarin vintage no bake pie is a takeoff on so many other flavors and type of ‘no bake pies’ that are out there in cyberspace. And, with these juicy tender always perfect mandarin slices mounded on top with the cool whip, well, you’re just going to want to go back for seconds!
Dole’s mandarin oranges come frozen, jarred and in cans. All are simply divine and delicious. And, all can be used for so many more things, both sweet and savory, in cooking. They’re all natural fruit, non-GMO and a good source of vitamin C. The peel back tab lid on the cans make it easy to open, and they come in both 15 and 11 ounce sizes. You’re going to use everything in this can, the light syrup and the mandarins. In fact, I’d suggest you have two cans because I found that when serving the pie, my folks wanted even more mandarin bites than were on a slice. And, of course, you want to dust these mandarin slices with freshly grated nutmeg. Oh, the sparkle to the flavor!
This pie is so simple to make. It requires virtually no baking or pastry skills other than following the directions. Make it in the evening. Add the mandarin orange ring, then cover and let it chill over night. When you’re ready to serve it, dollop on the whipped topping. Or if you want to get fancier make your own whipped cream. Serving with vanilla ice cream also would be fabulous!
