I make this dish often after the holidays when there's leftover turkey in the refrigerator or freezer. It's a hearty meal for the two of us and simple to prepare. -Julie Wagner, Northville, Michigan

- 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 cup cubed cooked turkey
- 1/2 cup cooked peas or vegetable of your choice
- 4 teaspoons sliced almonds
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
- 1-1/2 teaspoons diced pimientos
- Dash each salt, pepper and garlic powder
- 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted or chicken gravy
- In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Stir in the turkey, peas, almonds, parsley, onion, pimientos, salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
- In a bowl, combine biscuit mix and water until a soft dough forms. On a floured surface, knead gently 5-6 times or until dough is no longer sticky. Gently roll into an 11-in. x 7-in. rectangle; cut in half. Spoon half of the turkey mixture onto each. Carefully fold pastry over filling; seal edges tightly with a fork. Brush tops with butter.
- Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, heat soup; serve with turnovers. Yield: 2 servings.
