I need an easy recipe for homemade pot pie crust

I've made pot pie before, but with store bought crusts. I want to make my own.

  • i usually follow the directions on the Bisquick box for biscuits. i whip up a batch of those and pour it over the pot pie filling, then bake it in the oven. i have used store bought crusts once and it wasn't as good imo.

  • 3 cups unsifted flour, 1 cup crisco, 1/4 tsp salt. Mix til crumbly. Add in 1 egg, 1 tbs vinegar, 4 tbs ice water. work until smooth. Divide in to thirds. Makes 3 crusts or 4 paper thin ones. can be refrigerated up to one week. (Mother's Idiot Proof Pie Crust from wwwmaplelawnfarms.com/pie_crust.htm) GREAT RECIPE. Even I can't screw this up and it tastes great. A pie contest winner told me about it.

    It is so yummy and flaky, slightly salty with a hint of sweet. It really is prefect. In fact I just made it last night for pot pie. I use my kitchenaid mixer instead of a food processor.

  • here's what i just made last night...it sits in the fridge for 20 or more minutes so you could make it early in the day and let it sit.

    other then that, someone once said if you pop open buscuits, bake and then put it on top of your pie when done.

  • Kadee's Pot Pie, great for lazy cooks like me! You can sub whatever and I'm sure it'll still be good.
    Crust (double this if you also want crust on the bottom, I like it better that way):
    1 c. flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    1 tsp. salt
    4 tbsp. butter
    1/4 c. shortening (I use earth balance sticks)
    3 tbsp. ice water
    Mix all but the water with a fork until shortening is the size of small peas. Add ice water and mix to pastry consistency. Refrigerate while you mix the filling.
