Orange Creamsicle Pie is one of the smoothest, creamiest, best-tasting no-bake pies you will ever have!
In a large bowl, combine the shortbread cookie crumbs with the melted butter. Pour into a prepared 8 in pie dish and firmly press to the edges to form a pie crust.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy.
Add in the powdered sugar, orange juice, orange extract, and salt and beat until everything is combined. (If you are adding the zest, add it here.)
Gently fold in the whipped topping.
Pour creamsicle filling into prepared pie crust. Smooth out with a small offset spatula.
Smooth out a layer of whipped topping (about 2 cups, can use more or less depending on preference) over the creamsicle filling.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 3 days if covered. Top with an orange wedge. (optional)
