Ingredients

1 cup finely chopped roasted turkey
3/4 cup mashed potatoes
1/2 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup cut green beans, cooked
1 carrot, grated
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 (14.1-oz.) packages refrigerated piecrusts
1 large egg, beaten
Poppy seeds (optional)
Turkey gravy, warmed

Preparation

1. Stir together first 6 ingredients. Season with desired amount of salt and pepper.

2. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll each piecrust. Lightly roll each into a 12-inch circle. Cut each piecrust into 6 circles using a 4-inch round cutter. Place about 3 Tbsp. turkey mixture just below center of each dough circle. Fold dough over filling, pressing and folding edges to seal.

3. Arrange pies on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with egg, and, if desired, sprinkle with poppy seeds.

4. Bake at 400° for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with warm gravy.

Note: Unbaked pies can be frozen up to 1 month. Bake frozen pies 30 to 32 minutes or until golden brown.
