This pie is really different, but very delicious. The bite of the tart carnberries is mellowed by the rich egg-and-butter filling and pecan bits. I make mine in a metal, 9" pie plate. Keep an eye on the pie in the oven, as temperatures in your oven may vary. I like to bake mine for 40 minutes on the middle rack, but I am baking at high elevation (5,000 feet). You can use all white sugar in a pinch, and dried orange peel also works.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In mixing bowl, combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add orange zest and combine some more. Beat in eggs at medium speed, one at a time. Fold in the melted butter, then add the cranberries and beat at low speed. I like to beat them just enough to crush some of the berries so the filling gets a little bit pink, but not too much--you want the berries whole in the filling. Finally, fold in the pecans to blend evenly throughout. Pour filling into pie shell.
  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Keep an eye on the pie. The top may get a light brown meringue-y look. That's ok--it's delicious and lightly brittle. I use a cake tester or toothpick in the center to see if it has baked long enough to set. A clean toothpick means it's done. Allow the pie to sit about 15 minutes before cutting.
