I only used the crust part of this recipe and I love it!I had some leftover turkey filling left from making turkey flips.I didn't have enough dough from that recipe so I decided to use this one as it only makes a small dough.I omitted the dill but everything else was the same.It is so tasty.I used this crust recipe to make 2 large turkey flips.It is excellent!

This was enjoyed by the whole family, even though it was a little heavy on the mushrooms for me (not a mushroom lover anyway), everyone else thought they were great. I used a leftover rotisserie chicken and fresh mushrooms, but other than that followed the recipe. The dumpling crust was a real treat here, as it was a nice cross between our favorite fluffy dumplings and the traditional pie crust. Thanks for posting, Tammi! :D
