Directions
Pie Crust:
  • Chill all ingredients, including the flour and vinegar. Combine the flour, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles cornmeal. In another bowl, mix water and vinegar with the beaten egg. Add the liquid mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork to form a soft dough.

  • Filling:

  • In saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Gradually stir in water. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat, cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Gradually stir 1 cup hot mixture into yolks. Return mixture to saucepan, bring to a gentle boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from stove. Stir in butter, orange peel and orange juice.

  • Turn into pastry shell. Refrigerate.

  • Meanwhile prepare next layer by combining cream cheese and powdered sugar until well blended. Beat in the whipped topping until light and fluffy. Spread over orange filling.

  • Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with shredded coconut as desired. Chill until serving.
