Here are some creative ways for your kid to be your personal Sous Chef as you make our Mini Turkey Pot Pies Recipe. Just hover over each image for details. And make sure your little dudes wash their hands before starting!

🍴Dough🍴

Set oven to 450

Cut the dough into circles

Push a 4 1/2" - 5" jar/cup/lid into the dough to cut circles for the pie crusts.

Roll out the scraps

Take the dough scraps, form them into a ball, and roll the dough out with rolling pin. Cut out more circles.

Form the pie crusts

Push the dough circles into the muffin tin wells until the dough covers the whole well and comes out over the top a little bit. Little fingers do this job best!
