To celebrate the wonderful day of Pi Day, JC and I made chicken pot pies following this recipe here. We also made our own pie crusts.

Ingredients – Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of ice water

Directions – Pie Crust:

  1. Combine flour and salt.
  2. Cut in the butter so that it looks like small crumbs.
  3. Mix flour and butter while slowly adding water until mixture becomes a ball.
  4. Wrap the pie crust in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Note: This makes one 9-inch make crust. To make 4 mini pies, make two pie crusts.
