Do you have any tips or tricks for this recipe?

  • Make sure your pie dough whether it is pre-made or made from scratch stays
    cold. It will help retain its shape once it’s baking in the oven. Warm dough will melt into other ingredients.
  • Make sure the layer of the pie crust is plenty. We want to make sure that the pot pies do not look skimpy.
  • Bake them on the lowest oven rack. It helps prevent them from getting too dark. We want to ensure that they’re nice and golden.
  • You can also use 14oz ramekin if you prefer bigger. This recipe will fill up three of them.
  • Make sure you let the pot pies cool. We want to make sure the crust stays intact as you dig in.
