Barbecue Pork Turnovers

8 oz. Cream cheese, softened

½ c. unsalted butter, softened

1 ½ c. flour

2 c. leftover barbecue pulled pork

1 c. shredded mozzarella cheesecake

1. In a stand mixer cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in the flour stirring together until a dough forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for one hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.

3. Unwrap the dough and place on a floured surface. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin to ¼ of an inch thickness. If in circle shape {like a pizza} cut into 8 slices. If you kept in a square shape {or rectangle} cut into 8 squares.

4. Place a spoonful of the pulled pork on one side of the dough and top with cheese. Fold the other half of the dough over and using a fork or your fingers pinch together the seams and place on the baking sheet.

5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. For a deep golden color, brush the turnovers with an egg wash prior to baking. Cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
