BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Chef John Strout of Texas Roadhouse came to share with us a great way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers.

Pastry pockets

Ingredients:

  • Pastry dough
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling
  • Cooked, shredded turkey and/or
  • Prepared mashed potatoes and/or
  • Prepared sweet potatoes and/or
  • Prepared stuffing and/or
  • Cranberry sauce and/or
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Working with one disk of dough at a time, roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface. Using an overturned bowl about 5 inches in diameter as a guide, cut out three circles; set aside. Gather dough scraps, reroll, and repeat cutting process. Repeat process with remaining disk of dough.

3. For each pocket pie, mix together a 1/4 cup of filling using turkey, mashed or sweet potatoes, stuffing, and/or cranberry sauce as desired. Place each 1/4 cup filling on one side of each dough circle. Moisten edges lightly with water and fold dough over filling to form a half circle. Pinch edges of dough together to seal and crimp with a fork.

4. Place pocket pies on a prepared baking sheet; transfer to refrigerator until chilled slightly, about 10 minutes. Pierce each pie on the top twice using the tines of a fork and brush with egg.

5. Transfer to oven and bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let pies cool 5 minutes before serving. Pies can also be cooled and frozen, then reheated in the microwave.
