Pot Pies Recipe
(Double the recipe for larger, thicker crust pies)
- 3 cups flour, sifted
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 teaspoon salt
For the Pies
Use leftover beef or chicken, add anything from potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, onion, celery, salt, pepper and garlic to taste. Mix in with a gravy of your choice and fill in dough covered pan.
Put pastry on top. We like to add a boot pastry cut on out top! Brush the top with a whisked egg wash.Put the pie on a baking sheet in case the filling runs over. Bake at 375 until the crust is golden brown (usually about 50 minutes for a very thick crust.)
