Author Notes

This pie is Thanksgiving dinner all in one. It's is as epic as a Turducken - but infinitely more tasty (in my pie-loving opinion). The bottom tier is your turkey – turkey pot pie, to be precise. The next layer is your side dish: creamed kale with pancetta and walnuts. Finally, the top layer is filled with cranberry sauce. It's a serious show stopper - perfect for an offbeat Thanksgiving and amazing to wow at a Friendsgiving supper. —Erin Jeanne McDowell

What You'll Need
  1. Place the turkey pot pie on a large platter.
  2. Place the creamed greens pie on a 9 inch cardboard cake circle. Place the cranberry sauce pie on a 6 inch cardboard cake circle. This makes it easier to move the pie around (including removing it to slice and serve).
  3. Use an offset spatula to transfer the creamed greens pie on top of the turkey pot pie.
  4. Use an offset spatula to transfer the cranberry sauce pie on top of the creamed greens pie.

I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, Savory Baking, came out in Fall of 2022 - is full of recipes to translate a love of baking into recipes for breakfast, dinner, and everything in between!

I made this for Thanksgiving. It was truly inspired. So beautiful. Pie for days. I needed to add a little extra water to my hot water crust to get it to stay together at all, but still, it turned out beautifully.

Made for Thanksgiving 2016. It was a delicious show stopper!!
It took awhile to make but the end result was well worth it. The fillings were so good. I will do this again (when I have a crowd to impress)

Pie is always the answer. The end.
