Leftover Turkey “Pot” Pie
Ingredients for the Crust:
• 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 tsp sugar
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1/4 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
• 1/4 cup cold, Sous Weed canna-butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
• 4 Tbsp ice water
Ingredients for the Filling:
• 1 lb leftover Thanksgiving turkey, shredded
• 2 cups frozen peas and carrots

• 1/2 cup chicken broth
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp ground black pepper
• 3 Tbsp butter
• 1 egg, beaten with a splash of water
1. Make the crust: In a food processor, pulse together flour, sugar, and salt. Add both regular and canna-butter pieces and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 4 tablespoons of ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed.
2. Form dough into a disk, wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat an oven to 425ºF.
4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes.
5. Toss in shredded turkey and cook for another minute.
6. Place the frozen peas and carrots and corn in and cover with milk, bring to a boil, and simmer over medium-low heat for about 8 minutes.
7. Stir in 1/4 cup of flour, salt, black pepper and chopped rosemary. Slowly stir in the chicken broth until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens.
8. Remove from heat and pour into baking pan.
9. Roll out the chilled pie crust and drape over the top. Cut some slits on top with a sharp knife to help release the steam.
10. Brush with egg mixture and bake for 30 minutes until the filling is bubbly.
