Rustic Turkey Pie

Rustic Turkey Pie
Recipe by Beth of BPR Designs Edited by Angela of Windy City Knits

Beth from BPR Designs shares a delicious, rustic turkey pie recipe with us today. With the help of a ready made pie crust and just a few ingredients, this makes for a simple yet hearty family meal.

Rustic Turkey Pie
Serves 6 to 8

(9-inch) round prepared pie dough  
1 1/2
cups leftover turkey meat , cut into bite-sized pieces
cup crumbled blue cheese 
firm pears, peeled, cored, and diced - you can use apple, too
cup pecans , toasted and chopped
cup dried cranberries 
cup sour cream 
tablespoons heavy cream 
tablespoon minced fresh thyme 

Salt and pepper 

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Gently press pie crust into 9-inch tart/pie pan and trim excess dough with knife. Prick bottom of dough all over with tines of fork. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes; cool on wire rack.

2. Combine turkey, 1/2 cup cheese, pears, pecans, cranberries, sour cream, heavy cream, and thyme in large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Transfer turkey mixture to cooled pie crust, then sprinkle with remaining cheese.

3. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. (This can be refrigerated for 24 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving.)
