What Type of Crust Do I Use to Make Pot Pie?

The golden crust you see pictured is our Easy Shortcrust Pastry, this pastry is a dream to make and it comes together in your food processor. You can find the step-by-step directions here, and fear not you can do it! It’s the most tender, buttery crust, and can also be used in quiche, tarts, pies, tortes, gallates, empanadas, and canapé recipes too.

How Do You Get a Golden Brown Pie Crust?

Typically recipes with Pie Crust call for a “wash”. Consisting of cream or eggs, this wash gives your Pot Pie (or any pie for that matter) a masterful finish! We always use an egg wash, simply crack and beat an egg and brush liberally over the top of the pie shell.

Can I Substitute Another Meat in This Pot Pie Recipe?

Yes, you can! Options are endless and you can switch vegetable and protein choices to what you have on hand. You could easily make a vegetarian pot pie by excluding the meat all together too.

    Chicken Pot Pie Filling
  • While the Chicken Pot Pie Filling is cooling, prep your pie shells. You can use a 9-inch pie dish or individual servings in deep ramekins (as pictured). Fit the shortcrust pastry into the bottom of the vessel(s), spoon cooled filling into the bottom crust(s). Top with the second shortcrust pastry, flute the edges, (add garnish if desired with excess crust) then cut small slits in the top of the crust, which allows the steam to escape.
