Fluffy Orange Gelatin Pie

Fluffy Orange Gelatin Pie

1 can (15 oz.) mandarin oranges

1 package (3 oz.) orange gelatin

1 can (5 oz.) evaporated milk, chilled

1 graham cracker crust (8 inches)

1 medium navel orange, sliced

Whipped topping, thawed, optional

Red and yellow food coloring, optional

Wash hands. Drain liquid from oranges into a measuring cup. Add enough water to equal 1 cup; set oranges aside. Pour liquid into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; place mixer beaters in bowl. Cover and refrigerate until mixture becomes syrupy.

Add milk. Beat on high speed until nearly doubled. Fold in mandarin oranges. Pour into crust. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until set.

Combine food coloring in whipped topping to make orange; frost pie with topping, if desired.

Garnish with orange slices.

Yields 8 servings.
