Savory Pie Crust

Holidays are synonymous with gatherings of family and friends, coming together about stories of the year past and laughs over shared memories. Quiet jazz plays in the background, setting the mood for the comfort food that is soon to be enjoyed. A comfort favorite in my family is savory pies – chicken pot pie and steak and stout pie to be specific. Take the hearty and rich flavors of a thick soup or stew, pair it with a buttery flaky crust, and it has the warmth and comfort of the holidays written all over it.
