The last of the turkey.....

We had turkey for Thanksgiving, turkey sandwiches, turkey soup and now this will use up the LAST of the turkey........ phew.  I ate this with a side of squash and a side of Above the Dam Jam -Cranberry Jam.    Yes, jam.  Not cranberry sauce.  Nice sugary jam!  It was good.   And this recipe for turkey/chix pie is so yummy and super easy!

Adapted from Majorie Standish -Cooking Downeast

Filling for the pie-mix together (make sure the filling is warm):
Cooked Chicken or Turkey (2-3 cups?)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup.
1 cup+ of steam veggies- any kind.  They sell a steam bag of veggies with peas, corn, beans, and asparagus-very yummy!

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Mix dry ingredients together.  Using a pastry blender or two knives-work the butter into the flour mixtue till dry and crumbly.  Add egg and milk and stir with fork and use hands to form a ball of dough.  Split dough in half to make top and bottom crust.  Roll out with flour.  Place one crust on the bottom and fill with chix or turkey filling.  Place crust on top and flute edges.  Cut 3 slits into top.  Bake at 400 degrees for 18 mins.   It comes out so nice and fluffy!
