- 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
- 1 cup cubed peeled potatoes
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
- 1/3 cup chopped celery
- 1/4 cup chopped onion

- 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon

- 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.
- Divide dough in half with one ball slightly larger than the other; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- 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.
- 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.

This is one of my favorite potpies. I think the flavor is delicious. I love the cheese in the crust!

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!

This was a hit for our family. The crust is very flaky and the filling is yummy. :)
