Beautiful crust! I used it for a topping for Delicious Chicken Pot Pie Recipe #10744. Had to add a wee bit more liquid but that could just be the dry weather conditions here currently but really was quite lovely. I may reduce the salt some next time as I found it a bit on the salty side.

This crust was num num. I added some grated cheese to mine for a topping on some stew. I was only making enough for me and one other so I had some dough left over. I formed some biscusts and they turned out really nicely as well. I will use this again. Thanks:)

I doubled this recipe, and made three individual pot pies with it in mini springform pans and it was perfect.
