    Angela Curtis's Note:

    This is a recipe that is frozen for future use, one of many I made in preperation for the birth of my daughter. I got it from "More Make Your Own Groceries". This would probably be a good use for leftover Thanksgiving turkey While the original instructions say these should take 50 to 60 minutes to cook, I have made this in two different ovens and they took 10 to 15 minutes to cook in those. I used a slightly different method to create the circles for the pastry than recommended in the original recipe, and have included both for you to choose from.

      Sorry, but I did not like this recipe. I was very interested in using up my leftover turkey in the freezer, but these ingredients combined had a tast that was, to me, odd. I imagine this recipe could be good with a little variation.

      It reminded me of "Hot Pockets". Nice to have ready in the freezer. I added some red bell peppers to the onions and celery and a little of green onions also, mainly to add some color to the feeling. I like it very much that way; almost thought it was not even necessary to add the condensed soup, since it was quite juicy. I'm going to try it with out it next time. Thanks for the recipe Angela and I agree with you, just 15 minutes baking time.

      These were quite tasty, and despite making and rolling out the dough, they did not take very long to make. If I make them again, though, I think I'll make larger turnovers. Perhaps make eight instead of 12 from the quantities listed in the recipe. We wanted more than one each, but weren't quite hungry enough for two!
