Turkey Pot Pie Pockets

Looking for something easy, cheap and good.
This is a great snack, lunch or even
a light dinner and kids LOVE them !
I know...
Since they have been tested in our home.
All thumbs up for this one!

Here is the recipe
for the dough:

2 1/2 C. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 3/4 sticks butter, cut into chunks
1/3 C. super cold water
1 Tbl. vinegar
*Combine flour,salt and baking powder in mixing bowl.
*Cut butter in with pastry blender.
*Cut until you see the butter's been cut into little pieces,
none of them bigger than a raisin.
* Combine the water and vinegar and add it to the flour mixture.
* Stir slightly until the water is evenly distributed.
*Use your hands ( clean of course) to squeeze the dough together,
kneading just until it comes together in a ball.
* Divide into six equal parts.
* Roll out each part separately until about 1/4 inch thick.
* If you want a perfect circle, place a small sauce pan lid
on top of dough and trim around it, like a cookie cutter.
*Set aside.
* preheat your oven to 425 degrees

Ingredients for the
pot pie mixture:

2 cups diced deli meat of your choice
( I used turkey)
1 cup frozen mixed veggies; with carrots, peas and corn
1/4 tsp. pepper
one 10 oz. can cream of potato soup, undiluted
egg wash
6 slices provolone cheese ( or cheese of your choice)
*Make an egg wash with one egg and 1 Tbl. water and whisk
*Now, take one of your dough circles and
brush some egg wash around the edges.
*Place a slice of cheese onto the middle of the
round and top it with 1/2 to 2/3 cup of filling mixture.
* Fold the dough over the filling so you have a half circle.
*Press sides closed, brush a bit of egg wash on top and
cut a small slash in the top to allow steam to escape while it bakes.
*Repeat these steps for the remaining dough and filling.
*Bake 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
* Remove pocket pies from oven to cool before you take a bite.
The contents will be VERY HOT!!!

Use the dough recipe and fill them with whatever you want...
Make them all different!
The kids will love 'em!
