Ben's Turkey Pot Pie

This recipe makes two pies:

Bake three turkey legs in Dutch oven with baby carrots, one Yukon gold potato, one red potato, two chopped leeks, 1/4 of a chopped red onion, 1/2 quart chicken stock, and sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary at 350 degrees F for 90 minutes. Discard thyme and rosemary.

To make gravy, broil the drippings from the turkey plus one quart of chicken stock in the Dutch oven with the lid removed. Add 1/2 cup of wheat flour to thicken it while stirring occasionally.

Separate the turkey from the bone. Put pulled turkey and other ingredients plus frozen peas into two aluminum pie dishes and add salt and pepper. Add gravy. Roll out Pillsbury crescent dough and cover the pies. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes to one hour.
