We got the first snow of the year a few nights ago, so what better time to make a delicious, hot, home made pot pie!  This wasn't my first go at a pot pie, but with the way I don't follow recipes well, it was completely different from any other I've ever done.  I will say that this one was my favorite!  (I think the best part, for me, was the biscuit style crust, it was buttery and flaky and oh so yummy!)





Crust:

-2 Cups Flour
-3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
-1/2 Teaspoon Salt
-6 Tablespoons Butter
-2/3 Cup Milk

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the butter.  Add the milk (all at once) mix and then knead into a dough.  Press just over half of the dough into the bottom of the pan.

Filling:

-1/3 Cup Butter
-1/3 Cup Flour
-Splash of Water
-1/2 Teaspoon Salt
-1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
-1 Cup Vegetable Broth
-2/3 Cup Milk
-1 Can Campell's Condensed Broccoli and Cheese Soup
-1/2 Block Extra Firm Tofu (mashed up)
-12oz Bag Frozen Mixed Vegetables (or any vegetables you feel like!)
-Seasoning:  Hing, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, Nutmeg, Salt (to taste)

Melt the butter on medium heat in a sauce pan, add flour, salt, pepper and water.  Stir constantly until it is starting to bubble.  Then add the milk and vegetable broth and stir until combined.  Then add the can of condensed soup (do not add more liquid).  Stir until all of these ingredients are mixed well.  Add the tofu, vegetables and spices.  Cover and simmer on low until the vegetables are completely unfrozen.

Putting the Pie Together:

Pour the filling into the bottom crust that's already been pressed out.  On a floured surface, press out the rest of the crust and lay it on top of the filled pie and seal the edges.  (This is when I like to take the extra crust from the edges and make designs on top!)  Cut some small slits on top with a sharp knife.  Bake at about 400 degrees F for half an hour (or until the crust turns golden).
