Behold these beauties with their golden brown crust and savory middles. Flaky pie crust surrounds a stuffing of chicken, butternut squash, baby spinach and Swiss cheese.
My version of chicken pot pie. A modern reinvention.
Pocket pies have a charm factor a big pie can’t compete with. Mostly ’cause you can hold them in your hand and eat them, no utensils required.
Secondly, because they’re totally cute. I mean, just look at them. Who would turn them down?
Thirdly, my favorite reason of all, because they have more crust to go around. Every single bite is packed full of buttery crust. Not one bite will be without unlike a normal-sized pie where you run out of crust and are left with a pile of filling. What on earth do you do with that pile of filling anyways?
The pie crust-lover in me did a happy dance. All while holding a pie.
In each hand.
