How to make mini turkey pot pies:
(the ingredient amounts are listed in the printable recipe card further below)
You start by cutting out six 4″ and 6″ circles out of your pie crust. I used a large 6″ tupperware lid and a 4″ cookie cutter to make my circles. I cut one 6″ circle first, then used the excess trimmed pieces to make the rest of my circles. You should be able to get two large and two small circles out of each pie crust. You can see below it’s a bit of a puzzle. Fit the large circles into your jumbo muffin pan cups. Then you mix the rest of the ingredients together and divide the filling amongst the six muffin cups. Place the smaller pie crusts on top and cut some slits. Bake for 30 minutes and you have a warm delicious comforting meal for the whole family. Have yourself a merry little Christmas everyone!

Hi, my question is about the pan. I’m not sure what jumbo muffin pan really mean in size. Can you make these in mini ramekins?
Each cup in a jumbo muffin pan measures about 3.5″ in diameter at the top and about 2″ deep, so if you have ramekins around that size it should work. French onion soup bowls work too. I hope that helps and please feel free to reply back with any further questions.
My family can never finish full sized pies so these mini pies are the perfect size for us! I baked these for dinner last night and there were no leftovers! Thank you for sharing!
You’re very welcome. I’m glad it made for a great dinner!
I was so thrilled finding this perfect recipe from a web search. I am going to make these for dinner tonight but was wondering if you have ever froze them, if so, how long and at what temperature would I heat them from frozen?
I have never frozen them, but I don’t see why not. I would freeze them fully cooked, that way you just have thaw overnight and reheat. I would say 350F for 20 minutes in the jumbo muffin pan. I hope that helps and enjoy!
Is there any way to make these without the cream of chicken soup? Is there another substitution for this? Thank you
You can use any kind of cream soup you like as a substitute. Cream of mushroom works well. You do need some kind of condensed cream soup in this recipe because it makes the sauce. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions:)
I have made them using cream of celery and cream of mushroom soups, not a lot of difference
Can you premake the items the night before and bake the next day?
The only thing I recommend is you can mix the filling ingredients together the night before to save some time. If you prepare the pie crust too early it will get dry, and if you fill the pot pies too soon, the crust will get soggy. It only take about 15 minutes to put everything together. I hope you enjoy it and let me know if you have any other questions:)
What kind of turkey and how would you cook it for these pot pies? Is there a recipe for that?
I normally use turkey breast and here’s a really simple recipe from Martha Stewart:
I hope you enjoy the mini pot pies and have a lovely day.
What’s the secret to getting these out of the pan in one piece? I made these today, and they’re delicious. But… getting them out of the pan was a problem. I flipped them over onto a cooling rack, then over onto another rack, and they all ended up busted.
I’m sorry to hear that it was difficult for you to remove the pot pies from the baking pan. I recommend generously spraying the muffin cups with non-sticking cooking/baking spray. I even spray around the rim to prevent the edge of the crust from sticking. You can use a fork to help lift up the edges and then use your hands to carefully lift them up. I hope that helps and have a wonderful day:)
These look absolutely adorable!!! I love them so much! My family (all 12 of us) really enjoys pot pies, and know they would flip over these little things. Thanks so much for sharing. Happy 2017!
These have to be one of the most darling little pot pies I’ve ever seen! Funny to see our pillsvury pie crust in a different langueage, lol!
