Oxmoor House
Yield Serves 8
Bri Malaspino, Creative Manager at Lodge, submitted this recipe on behalf of her mother, Linda Egeto. Linda, an RN from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, created this recipe to avert a Thanksgiving-near-tragedy.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 pounds Granny Smith or other tart apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar (more or less, depending on apple sweetness)
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Nana Hirl's Pie Crust

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°.

  2. Melt the butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the orange zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg; mix well with a wooden spoon. Add the apples and cranberries, stirring to combine.

  3. Combine sugar, pecans, and flour; add to apple mixture, stirring to combine. Spoon apple mixture into Nana Hirl's pie crust (in a 10-inch cast iron skillet), packing tightly and mounding in center. Roll out remaining disk to 1/8-inch thickness and gently place over filling; fold edges under and crimp, sealing to bottom crust. Place pie on a jelly-roll pan. Cut 4 or 5 slits in top of pie for steam to escape.

  4. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake until crust is golden, 45 to 55 minutes.Transfer to a wire rack and cool 11/2 to 2 hours before serving.
