this recipe from the Barefoot Contessa is just a great one.
The crust is light and flaky and the filling is rich and creamy...real comfort food!
I decided to have some fun decorating the crust so I cut out the "Pi" symbols with the left over dough and cut out the word "Pi". It actually turned out so cute that we hated to dig in to it...but dig in we did and we managed to finish the entire pie.
I have to mention a few notes. I did halve the original recipe and still wound up with about one cup of filling left over and I even omitted the whole small onions. I used leftover chicken I had from the night before. Also, Ina's recipe was for 4 individual pies and I made one big one, using a glass pie dish.
So, here's hoping you have a great "Pi" Day! ( And Happy Birthday Einstein!)
I almost left the pie like this...then I got the brilliant idea to add the "Pi" symbols.
Comfort food at its best.
If you're going to make a pie today...how about this one!
