All-American Turkey Potpie Recipe

All-American Turkey Potpie Recipe

Ever since my sister-in-law shared this recipe with me, I haven't made any other kind of potpie. The crust is very easy to work with. —Laureen Naylor, Factoryville, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, combine flour and salt; cover and pulse to blend. Add cheese; pulse until fine crumbs form. Add shortening and butter; pulse until coarse crumbs form. While processing, gradually add water until dough forms a ball.
  • 2. Divide dough in half with one ball slightly larger than the other; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 3. For filling, in a large saucepan, saute the potatoes, carrots, celery and onion in butter for 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in broth; cover and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • 4. Combine flour and milk until smooth; gradually add to vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the remaining ingredients; simmer 5 minutes longer.
  • 5. Roll out larger pastry ball to fit a 9-in. pie plate; transfer to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge. Pour hot turkey filling into crust. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top or make decorative cutouts in pastry.
  • 6. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until crust is light golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.
