- Try pie for dinner: Usually pie crust isn't sweetened, so why reserve it for desserts only? Try using leftover pie crust in savory dishes like chicken pot pie. The creamy interior, filled with shredded chicken, peas, carrots, and corn, will warm you up on chilly Winter nights.
- Shape into a galette: Galettes are one of the first pastries that culinary school students learn, because they're fairly easy to master. Roll the dough out, stuff it with pear or apples, and fold the edges of the dough on top of the fruit. It bakes like a pie yet requires no pan. Try a savory rendition too by stuffing the galette with hearty greens and crumbly feta or goat cheese.

Here's the scenario: you are at home and hungry for food. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/ spouse/child/friend, but the ingredients you have on hand are limited.
You have cooked ham, a package of frozen pre-made dough, and fresh spinach. Using these products, along with whatever you currently have on hand in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?
