Sissy's Top Step Perch..:-)

... I found Sissy on the top step upstairs. Luckily I could grab my camera to get the picture before she moved.

She is a bit on the shaggy side right now. She needs to be groomed.

... Yesterday I made a homemade Chicken Pot Pie. I made a Cream Cheese Crust for it. I don't think I like that crust. It was a little too heavy. I think we prefer the lighter crust.

Individual Chicken Pot Pies or Pie
Shell crust:

1-2/3 c. flour

1- 8 oz. cream cheese,cold

1/3 c. butter, cold

1/4 t. salt

Filling:1 whole chicken, pulled from bone and chunked

1/3 cup -

real butter

1/3 cup - flour

2 t. minced garlic

1/2 t. salt & dash of pepper

1-1/2 cup - warm water

2/3 cup- milk

3 chicken bouillon cubes

1 cup- frozen mixed veggies

3 - individual sized tin pie bowlsFor crust combine the flour, cream cheese, and butter in a bowl. Cut in the cold cream cheese and butter until you have a crumbly mixture. Then starting working it with your hands, kneading until you have a ball of dough: On a floured surface, roll out the dough in to a flat square. Take one of your tin bowls and trace and cut an overlapped piece of dough. Place it into the bowl and softly press it into the corners:

You will get 3 servings out of this recipe. roll out 6 squares for 3 bottom crust & 3 top crusts. Or you will get 1 large pot pie like mine.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in flour, garlic, & spices till blended.

Slowly stir in warm water, bouillon cubes, & milk. Slowly bring to soft boil & stir constantly for 2 MIN. or til thickened.

Remove from heat & add the frozen vegetables (peas, carrots, celery, & the chicken.

Fill the shells: Put the tops of the crusts over this & seal the edges.
You can use a fork to make a fluted edge. Make a criss cross slit in the center: Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. OR If making 1 large pot pie bake about 30-40 MIN. Watch it carefully so it doesn't get to brown on top.

I got the recipe on the blog called " Mommy's Kitchen."

  1. Good Morning Bev!!!

    That Chicken Pot Pie was good! But I'll have to find a different crust recipe. The Cream Cheese crust was a little bit too heavy for Paul & I. BUt I wanted to give it a try since that is what came with the recipe.

    How is your Christmas shopping coming along? MOST of ours is done. Plus I'm also crocheting the "covertibile gloves" I have on here for my sisters and Mom.
