All American Turkey Pot Pie

It’s officially fall in Indiana, the leaves have changed and we are actually experiencing fall like weather. You know what that means! Comfort food!! This is one of the first “fall food” recipes I made this year and all I can say is YUM-O!

This recipe was straight out of my Taste of Home Cookbook.


  • 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
  • 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 Progresso ® 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


·         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 wrap. 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. Yield: 6 servings.
