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
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).
Use an offset spatula to transfer the creamed greens pie on top of the turkey pot 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.
