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

Ingredients

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

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. Gradually add water until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half with one ball slightly larger than the other; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For filling, in a large saucepan, saute potatoes, carrots, celery, onion and garlic in butter for 5-6 minutes. Add broth; cover and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. In a small bowl, 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.
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. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until crust is light golden brown. Serve immediately. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I liked everything but crust. The crust was nice and flaky, but it was a little too salty. Overall, it was easy to make, but next time I will follow a different recipe for the crust."

"I doubled this and made it for a large group and it was a hit! The crust goes together nicely in the food processor, but is not as easy to roll out as a normal pie crust, but oh, so worth it. YUM!"
