Turkey Pot Pie with Cranberry biscuit crust

This is TOTALLY easy to make, and it's so good...Seriously, all you need is leftovers, and if you don't have left over turkey, then one of those cooked supermarket chickens works great too (you could have the supermarket chicken tonight, and make this tomorrow with the leftovers!) The recipe is waaaaay down at the bottom.

I've had a camera tragedy...I know I've whined about this before...and I'm going to whine about it again right now! the AF (auto focus) on my FAVE fave fave lens (50mm) is no longer working... well, it IS work...really really hard at focusing...but can't lock on to anything...sigh...and if it DOES lock onto something, I couldn't tell you what it sees, because there's NOTHING in focus... I can still use it in MF, but it's a LOT slower. Anyway, moving on... (for now)
The boy and I were out and about dropping off the disc of this cutie... seriously... I don't think this little beauty could get ANY cuter??
While we were out, I stopped at a "not really a dollar" store. I found a super cute little frame with a matte cut out that spells BABY...and for $2.95, I couldn't resist. I am trying to print and hang more of the photos I take of my sweet boy, his lovely dad and other photos I take. This initiative is a direct result of a nice lunch I had yesterday with a really nice couple that I met through the local baby drop in. I was asked if I printed many of the pics I took or if I mostly left them on the computer... I don't print nearly enough of them...I have lots of empty frames (what else do you give a photographer??) and they are the CUTEST frames ever!! I love getting frames, but I guess it's like the "mechanic has the worst car" thing. so, in the interest of filling those wonderful frames I am in the midst of printing pics of the boy and our daily happenings. and a cute pic I had to share that I am printing for sureHe just looks like such a little boy here.
ok, onto the recipe (what you've ALL been waiting for, right?)

Turkey Potpie
  • 1 Pkg of cream of veggie soup mix (made following directions on the back)
    I'm sure you could use a regular can of "cream of veg" but my fella is lactose intolerant, so I use the pkg, so I can use "his" milk.
  • left over turkey or chicken, shredded - about a cup and a half (or 2)
  • add turkey/chicken to soup
  • spoon into ramekins or oven proof dish

    make biscuit crust:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt (I never add this...the butter has salt!)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup of left over cranberry sauce

    for nice light biscuits, don't over mix, handle only as much as needed to mix the dough.
  • mix in cranberry sauce
  • form 1/2" thick biscuit to fit over ramekins (lay on top of ramekin, not in the soup mix)
  • bake at 450 for about 20-25 min or until biscuit is cooked through.
