1 egg, beaten
1 tblsp. water
2 cups cooked chicken, diced in to cubes
1/3 Cup Butter
2/3 Cup Flour
1 large carton Chicken broth
½ Cup Half & Half
1 small Onion, chopped fine
1 sm package Carrots (cooked and sliced)
1 Cup frozen peas (thawed and cooked)
While your pastry sheets are thawing you can make your filling:
In a medium sized saucepan make a roux with the flour and butter.
Add chicken broth a little at a time while stirring to make a thick gravy consistency then add in ½ cup of half and half to thin out the sauce a bit.
** Make sure you cook down the flour before adding the chicken broth or you will taste the flour in your sauce.
In a small pan sauté the onions til clear then add them to the roux. Add the remaining chicken, carrots & peas. This is now your sauce/gravy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Place the sauce/gravy in a 2 quart casserole dish.
Take 1 sheet of the thawed puff pastry and place it horizontal on your dish then take the 2nd sheet and place that one vertical on your casserole. Trim off excess pastry and crimp edges with a fork.
Wisk 1 egg with a tablespoon of water in a small bowl then egg wash your puff pastry before placing it in the oven.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Place cherries in medium saucepan and place over heat. Cover. After the cherries lose considerable juice, which may take a few minutes, remove from heat. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Pour this mixture into the hot cherries and mix well. Add the almond extract, if desired, and mix. Return the mixture to the stove and cook over low heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and let cool. If the filling is too thick, add a little water, too thin, add a little more cornstarch.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Use your favorite pie dough recipe. Here’s mine.
Prepare your crust. Divide in half. Roll out each piece large enough to fit into an 8 to 9-inch pan. Pour cooled cherry mixture into the crust.
Dot with butter.
Moisten edge of bottom crust.
Place top crust on and flute the edge of the pie. Make a slit in the middle of the crust for steam to escape.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool.
2 ½ teasp. Baking Powder
3 Tblsp. Cornmeal
½-3/4 C. Oil
Raisins & Milk as needed
Sorry, I do not necessarily follow the measurements for this recipe but once you start adding in the milk you will get a dough like consistency.
