No need to buy extra ingredients for this cocktail; it makes use of what's on hand by calling for cranberry sauce to add sweetness and heft. It's the perfect example of hitting two birds with one stone. That, my fellow cooks, is definitely something to be grateful for.

While luscious pie fillings of lemon curd and meringue, roast apples, or juicy cherries tend to receive top billing, it's the crust — an unsung hero, if you will — that separates the average pie from the astounding one. If flaky and butter-rich is your end goal, we've got you covered — yet the question of how to roll it all out fuss-free still lingers.For a mere $10, this handy (and handsome) dredger can be all yours. A dredger ensures that with just a flick of the wrist, an even dusting of flour can be dispensed on the surface, the rolling pin, and even on the dough itself to ensure that dough will neither stick nor tear.
Sure, one could just use a spoon to sprinkle flour over the surface where the pie-rolling magic happens, but this is a messy and often ineffective proposition. The dredger is simple yet revelatory; I suggest you pick one up posthaste.

Otherwise, keep it simple. The turkey bones have enough flavor and seasoning as is. Allow the stock to simmer for three hours (roughly how long you'll be at the table anyway). Then remove the large bones, and strain the liquid through a mesh sieve or chinois. Allow the soup to come to room temperature before storing it in the fridge or freezing it for a later date. You'll be glad to have the stock around for a quick leftover turkey soup!
