Hello all! I’m Carisa from Messes to Memories and I’m so excited to be sharing some of my favorite recipes and crafts here on PinkWhen. I’ve got the perfect recipe to start out, a turkey pot pie recipe. I love winter comfort food!
A warm turkey pot pie coming out of the oven at dinner time brings a big smile to my face. This turkey pot pie is one of my favorite recipes. I remember growing up and smelling this pie baking in the oven, my tastebuds would get so excited! Oh yum.

Just thinking about turkey pot pie makes me happy.
Living in North Carolina we are missing the snow so much this winter so we are doing some fun activities to bring the snow inside.
My kids saw the snowflake on top of the pot pie and got so excited. They love pot pie–pie for dinner! It’s an easy way to trick my kids into eating vegetables. Plus, I think the snowflake gives the pot pie a rustic look!

Not to mention how pretty it makes the pie look and how much easier it is to use a cookie cutter and put the cut out dough on top than to do a full on pie crust on top and make it look perfect.
Super easy, delicious and pretty individual pot pies are such a fun dinner for the whole family.

I love to use my own homemade crust, which can be kind of fickle… but with a store bought crust, this meal is even quicker! Quick, easy and delicious… my favorite kind of recipes.
