This recipe makes 4 personal pot pies. I baked them in ceramic pot pie dishes which are basically oversized dessert ramekins. You can also buy mini pie tins from the grocery store and use those.
First, preheat the oven to 375. Then you’ll want to pre-bake your bottom crust. I make my own pastry crust from the MyVeganPlanet recipe, found here. Once you’re ready to use your pastry dough, pull it out of the fridge and roll it out to 1/4 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut the dough to your liking to create a bottom crust for each pie and a top crust. If you’re really ambitious, you can make a lattice top for the pot pies by cutting strips of dough and “weaving” them together to form a tic-tac-toe board type of topping. It looks cute and will make old ladies go “awwwwwww, how precious!”. Spray your pie pans or dishes with a little baking spray. Place your bottom crusts in the pie dishes and bake until they are golden. Remove from the oven and set aside.
*Note* The bottom crust thing is totally optional. Personally, I like a lot of crust in my pot pie, which is why I have a top and bottom. Also, if you don’t feel like making your own pastry dough, you can use ready-made puff pastry, which works just as well and tastes pretty damn good. Again, this is all up to you and how much time you have.
