    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 (4 1/2 inch) aluminum foil, potpie tin
    • 1 refrigerated pie crust (most 15-ounce packages contain 2 crusts, enough for 6 pies)
    • 1 egg (makes enough for 6 pies)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 2 (3 1/2 ounce) boxes vanilla instant pudding mix (1 box makes enough for 3 pies, or use canned pudding) or 2 (3 1/2 ounce) boxes white chocolate pudding mix (1 box makes enough for 3 pies, or use canned pudding)
    • 4 cups cold milk (to make pudding)
    • 4 -6 starburst decorative candies (yellow)
    • 10 -12 starburst decorative candies (orange)
    • 3 -5 chewy Jolly Rancher candies (green, or Tootsie roll candy)
    • 1 banana (makes enough for 6 pies)
    • 2 -3 dried apple rings


    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 450°.
    2. 2
      Unroll or unfold a piecrust on work surface.
    3. 3
      Using the upside-down potpie tin as a guide, cut a circle of dough about 1/2 inch larger than the tin.
    4. 4
      If you're making more than one potpie, simply cut another circle from the dough. Reroll the scraps to cut out a third and repeat witht the other crust.
    5. 5
      Crumple a piece of aluminum foil into a 1 1/2-inch ball and set it in a potpie tin. Cover it with a layer of foil to create a smooth mound, then lay a circle of dough on top.
    6. 6
      Press the tines of a fork around the edge of the dough to crimp it, then use the fork to gently poke a few holes in the crust.
    7. 7
      Beat the egg with the water, then brush the mixture over the dough.
    8. 8
      Set the pie tin on a baking sheet a nd repeat for the other crusts.
    9. 9
      Bake the crusts for about 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Let cool completely.
    11. 11
      Prepare the pudding and milk according to the package directions.
    12. 12
      Refrigerate until serving time.
    13. 13
      Place the Starburst or Tootsie Roll candies unwrapped on a paper plate and warm them in the microwave just until they're slightly softened, about 12 to 15 seconds, (the Jolly Rancher candies will soften from the warmth of your hands.)
    14. 14
      Once you've shaped them, lay the candies on waxed paper or a paper plate, set apart from each other so they won't stick together.
    15. 15
      Corn kernels: Roll the yellow candy between your hands or on a clean work surface to create a 4-inch-long rope, then use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut the rope into 1/4-inch pieces.
    16. 16
      With your fingers, form each piece into a kernel by flattening one end and pinching the other.
    17. 17
      Chicken: Use kitchen shears or a knife to cut the apple rings into 1/2-inch-wide pieces.
    18. 18
      Peas: Roll the green candy into a 5-inch-long rope. Cut the rope into 1/4-inch pieces, then roll each piece into a ball.
    19. 19
      Potatoes: Peel the banana, slice off three 1/4-inch-thick pieces, then cut each piece into small cubes.
    20. 20
      Cubed carrots: Cut each orange candy into 4 squares.
    21. 21
      To assemble the pie just before serving time, spoon about 2/3 cup of the pudding into the each pie tin.
    22. 22
      Add the candies and the fruit to the pudding, then set the piecrust on top.

      This recipe is hilarious!! I cut it out from Family Fun Magazine and knew I had to try it! I teach a kids cooking class on Wednesday nights and I thought the kids would get a kick out of this. The look on their faces was priceless when I showed them what we were making, especially since Canadian Thanksgiving had just passed. When I finally explained what we were making, we all had a good laugh and the girls had a great time making and shaping their own pot pie. I simplified the recipe by creating "open-faced" pot pies by using premade and baked tart shells. I make the same recipe three weeks in a row for three different age groups and in total about 200 pies will be made. thanks so much for posting this fun recipe!

      This is such a fun recipe! I used to run programs for Girl Scouts, and this is one of the recipes we'd make with the girls, but with just a few changes... We called it "Chicken Not Pie," and used fruits instead of all the candy! It tastes just as amazing if you use diced peaches (for the carrots), pineapple tidbits (for the chicken), diced pears (for the potatoes), mini-grapes (for the peas), and small bits of diced mango (for the corn). It's super-yummy, and it sneaks 2 servings of fruit into your child's diet!

      I substituted white chocolate irregularly cut/crumbled instead of apple for the chicken, and used mini marshmallows instead of banana for the potatoes. I also found a 6-pak of mini pie graham crusts, so was thus able to skip the pie crust prep steps. 1 vanilla pudding pkg was more than enough to fill the 6 small pies (had some left over). Everyone loved them and thought they were a blast. I should have made 6 more to meet the demand ;-)
