  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough (thawed)
  • Fillings for Homemade Pockets (suggestions: ham and cheese, pizza ingredients, broccoli and cheese, shredded chicken)


  1. Roll half of the dough out to form a 12 by 14 inch rectangle.
  2. Cut the rectangle into 16 squares.
  3. Place 3 to 4 tablespoons of filling in the middles of 8 of the squares.
  4. Moisten edges of squares with water.
  5. Top with 8 remaining squares.
  6. Press dough firmly around edges.
  7. Lay on wax paper in cookie sheets in freezer for 10 to 20 minutes.
  8. This is known as “quick freezing” and will prevent pockets from sticking together in freezer.
  9. Place in freezer bag, date and label: “Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown.”
