Ham and Cheese Pockets

This is a recipe that I made by combining a couple different recipes I use.
It is relatively quick, and we all love it! It makes 5 pockets, but can easily be doubled to make more if needed.
1 1/2 - 2 Cups grated Cheese
1 Cup chopped deli ham
1/2 TBS yeast in
3/4 C. warm water
1TBS Sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
Mix all together and knead, adding more flour as needed until dough is not sticky. Divide dough into 5 sections and roll each out until about 1/4 inch thick and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. In the middle of each place about 1/2 cup of the filling mixture. Fold the dough over and press the edges with a fork to seal. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Let raise for 10 minutes. Bake at 375* for 15-18 minutes, until lightly browned. Yummy!
