Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (167 grams)
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter (86 grams)
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp shortening (33 grams)
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp ice water (40 mL)

For the Filling

  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup pure orange juice (60 mL)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • zest of one orange

For the Topping

  • 1 cup heavy cream (250 mL)
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar (30 grams)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

For the Crust

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cardamom, sugar, and salt.
  • Add butter and shortening, and using a pastry blender or your fingers, rub the butter and flour together until you have small pieces of fat and some larger pea-sized pieces.
  • Add ice water and combine with a spatula just until the mixture comes together. 
  • Shape the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Gently roll out the pie dough disc into a 12-inch diameter circle and place in nine-inch pie pan. Chill in fridge for 15 minutes. 
  • Use a fork to poke multiple holes in the bottom of the crust. Cover crust with parchment paper or aluminum foil and fill with pie weights. 
  • Place on baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove pie weights and bake for another 15 minutes. Allow to cool. 

For the Filling

  • Mix together sweetened condensed milk, orange juice, egg yolks, lemon juice, and orange zest. 
  • Pour into partially baked pie crust. Place back on baking sheet and bake for another 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

For the Topping

  • Combine cream, sugar and vanilla in mixing bowl. Whip with whisk attachment on medium speed for about 3 minutes. 
  • Top pie with whipped cream and orange zest.
