I was a little worried to make my own crust because many people told me it was hard to get the dough just right to make a good crust. Maybe it is because I used shortening instead of butter, or maybe it was simply a fluke.
My crust was awesome. This is a picture of my husband making the first cut into our chicken pot pie. It was really and truly awesome.
I confess that this is my second attempt at a pot pie. I played with the innards on the second go round and tried my first crust instead of using the frozen pre-made shells.
This pie pan that I made it in was much, much too small.
