Great turkey recipe. To cook a turkey quickley you can cut it up like a chicken-removing legs and thigh together, then the back, snip off the wing tips. Lay the pieces on a cookie sheet breast side up. It bakes done and moist so fast. This is the Wolfe method. (Head of DVC Culinary School and wrote a book on turkey.) Many local chefs uses this method. You organize the turkey back into position and it looks "normal" and whole but has backed so quickly. I must do a video on it!
