TUNA, SALMON, CHICKEN OR TURKEY TURNOVERS

Category:    Salmon, Chicken, Poultry, Fish
Yield: 5 servings
 
      1 c  Cooked or canned tuna,                   Salt andor Pepper
           -salmon, chicken or turkey               Combine the above.
      1 c  Shredded cheese                          Biscuit Dough
    1/4 c  Chopped celery                      2 c  Flour, sifted
      1 ts Finely chopped chives, onion        1 tb Baking powder
           -or green onion                 1 1/4 ts Salt
           Mayonnaise, enough to             1/4 c  Shortening or cooking oil
           -moisten                          3/4 c  Milk
 
  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  
  Filling:
  
  Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, then add the shortening or
  oil and cut it in until mixture is like a coarse meal.  Add the milk all at
  once and stir until it forms a soft ball.  Turn the dough out on a floured
  board and knead lightly 20-25 times.
  
  Roll the dough out until it is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.  Cut into 4-inch
  squares or rounds and place about 2 1/2 T. filling in the center of each.
  Fold each square or round over and seal (a little water to moisten helps
  here).  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees,
  or until turnovers are light brown at the edges.  Serve hot, with some of
  that turkey noodle soup and turkey chef salad .   Serves 5-6 people.
  
  Tips and Variations:
  
  I prefer a milder cheese (such as Jack or Mozzarrella) to a
  stronger-flavored cheese (such as Cheddar).  The latter tends to overwhelm,
  while the former does a nice job of taking a back seat to the other flavors
  present in the filling.
  
  Otherwise, use your imagination!  Try various appropriate herbs (sage,
  rosemary or tarragon go well with the poultry) in either the filling or the
  dough.  1/4 cup of some other vegetable can be added (sugar snap peas are
  marvelous, and mushrooms do well, too).  Try adding 1/4 t. each smoke
  flavoring and/or dry mustard to the dough.  And those of you who save this
  recipe can take it from there; it's extremely versatile.
