I’ve mentioned before that cooking is not really my strong suit. You can find my story about my small, fall kitchen fire here.
Everyone in my house is kind of sick and coughing, including me. And my head hurts. So last night I decided I’d make a healthy, homemade chicken pot pie with all that yummy chicken broth and fresh veggies and white meat chunks of chicken. I found my Pioneer Woman cookbook and used her recipe for pie crust.
I mixed flour, butter, water, an egg, white vinegar and salt together. It looked great. Then I noticed the bag of flour said self-rising (which has salt and baking powder added.) Crap. I tasted the dough and it was pretty salty. And I was afraid it would puff up all out of the dish and not hold the filling.
I didn’t know what to do so I added grated cheese and herbs — not sure why I thought that would help, I hoped maybe it would cover up the saltiness — and made biscuits out of the dough. They ended up somewhere between pie crust and biscuits, very cheesy, salty and crisp. I pretended it was a new recipe I found on a cooking blog 🙂
