Start by making a cookie crust. I used gluten free vanilla sandwich cookies but you can make this with any vanilla or golden sandwich cookie you like, gluten free or not. Bake the pie crust at 350 degrees until its golden brown.

Fresh squeezed grapefruit, oranges, limes, lemons and clementines combine to make a sweet/tart pie filling.

Condensed milk brings the sweetness and creamy texture to this party while eggs make things silky and hold it all together. Lower the oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake the pie until it jiggles a bit in the center.
