How To Make Homemade Pot Pie Dough - Recipe

Here is my nanny Frances recipe on how to make homemade pot pie dough. Making your own dough is a lot easier than what most people think. You can use this pot pie dough recipe to make chicken pot pie, beef pot pie or ham pot pie.

Homemade Pot Pie Dough Recipe

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tbsp. vegetable shortening
3 1/2 tbsp. cold tap water
2 large eggs

In a large bowl, sift together the all purpose flour with the salt. Stir in the 2 eggs and vegetable shortening using a pastry blender/cutter. Add in the cold tap water and move the dough mixture around with a fork until its moistened. Use your hands and form it into a large ball.

Lightly dust a dough board with flour and roll out your dough until its an 1/8" thick. Cut it into squares and drop your dough squares into boiling broth (chicken, beef or ham). You will want to cook your dough squares for approximately 10 minutes and then proceed with whatever pot pie recipe you are making.
