Well, first off, let me say a big thank you to the gang here at DC for giving me the courage to try 2 new things this year.
One was making my own stock (I am now a fresh stock/broth junkie).
The other was to try making my own Pot Pies
We had our big Christmas meal Saturday so after stripping the turkey carcus I put it in the fridge then boiled it down yesterday evening and put the stock in the freezer.
Today I took some of the leftover turkey, cubed it up and added some frozen peas and carrots.
I then melted 2 Tbl butter in a big skillet, added 2 Tbl AP Flour and stirred it into a rue, then added 2 cups of my turkey stock to make a gravy. I then added the turkey and veg. to the pan and stirred it together.
I then made a standard pie crust (2 cups AP flour, 1 tsp Salt, 2/3 Cup Butter cut together until about the texture of corn meal then sprinkle 5-7 Tbl. water combining with fork after each Tbl. then divide in half and roll) but I didn't roll it out thin enough and it got pretty thick in the oven ha ha.
Anyway I put the whole thing in a glass dish and baked at 400º for 1 hour until nice and golden brown.
It came out great (though too much crust and not enough salt)
God Bless and Happy New Year!
