Amazing Orange Cheesecake Pie with Orange Glaze!

Last month, during Spring Break in Florida, I dragged the family to an orange grove. When we got there, I handed all four kids a bag, and we headed out, into the trees. If you haven’t ever done this, let me tell you, the smell of citrus flowers is unbelievable. Not only are the flowers amazing, but a fresh-picked orange fragrance is also so much stronger than those from the store. Just the smell alone is worth going. Anyhoo…Where was I? Oh yes, The excitement of picking oranges was just too much! Everyone’s bag was at least half full. All bags combined totaled a LOT of oranges! We spent $50 on oranges. Back at home, it was my job to come up with orange recipes. So, I jumped at the chance to make dessert on Easter Sunday, and out came a No-Bake Orange Cheesecake Pie.
