It will look like the picture above except it has a marshmallow meringue on the top.

1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups of orange juice
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
3 egg yolks beaten
2 Tablespoons butter
Grated rind of 1 organ you could substitute with 1 teaspoon of orange zest
1 vanilla wafer pie shell
1 marshmallow meringue

Stie in ingredients together, add orange and lemon juice and cook slow until thickened, stirring constantly. Add slowly to eggs yolks, return to heat and cook 2 minutes longer. Add butter and orange rind or zest. Cool. Pour into the pie shell, cover with meringue. This will make 1 – 9″ pie.

The French Version is to omit the meringue, Whip 3/4 cup heavy cream, sweeten and fold in 1/2 into the filling. Pour the other 1/2 of the filling into the pie shell sprinkle with chopped pecans, add remaining filling and spread with whipped cream.
