Thanksgiving Leftovers Pot Pie

For the crust:

9 inch deep dish pie pan

2 cups all purpose flour

8 tablespoons unsalted butter

7 tablespoons ice cold water

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

extra flour for dusting the counter


1. Using stand mixer or mixer add flour, butter and salt to bowl. Turn on to low speed. Add 7 tablespoons water. Turn up speed on mixer and beat for 1-1 1/2 minutes or until pea size crumbs form.


2. Add flour to surface and dump crust onto counter or cutting board. Form into a large ball and add cover with plastic wrap or place in ziplock bag and put in fridge. Leave and let cool for 2-8 hours. For this recipe, I let it chill for 4 hours.


3. Remove crust from fridge and add more flour to work space and rolling pin. Split crust into 2 balls. Roll pie crust from the center going outwards. The pie crust needs to be rolled wide enough to cover the bottom and going up the sides of the pie pan and the top crust needs to cover the entire top of the pie and a little bit down the sides of the pie pan.

2 cups milk

1/2 cup chicken stock
