Fruit pies always make a good dessert, I think. Based on the reviews, I don't think any changes are necessary for this adopted recipe. The reviewer's suggestion of lemon juice instead of orange juice is a great idea if you're like me and always have lemons or lemon juice but rarely keep orange juice in the house.
