We can’t boast about this recipe enough – you’ll just have to try it and see for yourself! It’s sure to become your go-to turkey pot pie recipe for any season.

Combine turkey, gravy and vegetables in a large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until hot and then transfer to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, making sure turkey is covered with gravy.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add Cabot Salted Butter or Cabot Extra Creamy Premium Sea Salted Butter and work into dry ingredients with a pastry blender or fork.
Stir in grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese and then gradually stir in milk.
Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and knead gently (be careful not to overwork). Roll out dough into a 1-inch-thick layer and cut out biscuits with a round cutter or small glass.
Arrange biscuits on top of filling. Place extra biscuits on baking sheet. Bake pot pie and biscuits for about 15 minutes or until golden.
