In the Mr. Daddy household, we love to bake fun treats that
everyone can help make and will enjoy eating!

When it comes to Thanksgiving, the food and feast seems to
be never ending. We have happened across a few extra special recipes throughout
the years that are family favorites and traditions. One of those recipes is
Stuffed Turkey Pockets. Aside from a cookie-cutter resembling a turkey, these
treats have nothing to do with turkey but will be enjoyed by all just the same.

For this simple, kid-friendly Thanksgiving H’orderve you
will need:

  • ·     
    1 egg
  • ·     
    1 teaspoon of water
  • ·     
    Prepared pie crust
  • ·     
    Mini chocolate chips
  • ·     
    Peanut butter chips
  • ·     
  • ·     
    Cream cheese
  • ·     
  • ·     
    Raw sugar

We like to stuff our turkeys with peanut butter and
chocolate chips or jam and cream cheese; that way, everyone has something to
enjoy – whether they like sweet chocolate or refreshing jam. Just follow these
easy directions:

  • ·     
    Heat your oven to 375°.
  • ·     
    Whisk one egg in a bowl with a teaspoon of water and set
    it aside.
  • ·     
    On a floured surface, roll out a prepared piecrust so it’s
    about 1/8-inch thick.
  • ·     
    Use a large turkey-shaped cookie cutter (or another shape
    if you prefer) to make as many dough turkey pairs as possible.
  • ·     
    For each pocket, spread several mini chocolate chips and
    peanut butter chips (or cream cheese and jam) on a turkey. Leave a 1/2-inch
    margin around the edge of each turkey that’s free and clear of anything.
  • ·     
    Brush egg wash onto the edge of the turkey and place a
    second turkey cutout on top; press the edges together to seal.
  • ·     
    Brush the top of each stuffed turkey with egg wash and
    sprinkle them with raw sugar.
  • ·     
    Bake the turkeys on a parchment-covered cookie sheet until
    their edges begin to brown; it should take about 10 minutes.
  • ·     
    Let them rest on the baking sheet a few minutes before
    moving them to a cooling rack.

Place the treats on a platter and enjoy eating them over
smiles and laughter!

Stay tuned next month to learn about my favorite Christmas
treats and activities.

Until then,

Mr. Daddy
