Turkey Cranberry Wreath

Baking in a Wood Fired Oven: After pushing the coals to the back of the wood fired oven near the wall, brush the ashes off of the floor.  The chunks of glowing hardwood coals should have little or no flame when the apple pie goes in. Every 15 minutes, turn apple pie so the other end faces the fire.

2 packages (8 ounces each)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons honey Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper.
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped (about 12 ounces)
1/2 cup celery, sliced
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, snipped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
4 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 egg, separated

1. Heat Pizza Oven to 375F. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. With wide ends of triangles toward the center, arrange 8 triangles in a circle on Large Round Stone. Corners of wide ends will touch and points will extend 1 inch beyond edge of Baking Stone. Match wide end of each remaining triangle to wide end of each outer triangle; seal seams using Dough and Pizza Roller. (Points will overlap in center, do not seal.)

2. Measure mayonnaise, mustard and black pepper into classic batter bowl. Chop turkey using Food Chopper. Slice celery using Chef’s Knife. Snip parsley using Kitchen Shears. Add turkey, celery, parsley and cranberries to Batter Bowl. Grate cheese into Batter Bowl using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Mix filling using Mix ‘N Scraper®. Using Medium Scoop, scoop filling over seams of dough, forming a circle.

3. Coarsely chop walnuts using Food Chopper, sprinkle over filling. Beginning in center, lift one dough triangle across mixture. Continue alternating with outer strips, slightly overlapping to form wreath. Tuck last end under first.

4. Separate egg over Small Batter Bowl using Egg Separator. Beat egg white lightly; brush over dough using Pastry Brush. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cut and serve using Slice ‘N Serve®.
