Anyone else remember the frozen pot pies that came in mini pie tins and individually wrapped cardboard containers?! I used to love getting part of the golden crisp crust together with a spoonful of creamy filling, all in one bite. Frozen pot pies were major players in the surge of convenience and tv dinners back in the 80s. A pot pie is indeed a delicious and cozy thing to make from scratch, and when we were coming up with cold weather recipe ideas that kids could feel confident making themselves, this was one of our first ideas. It is yet another way for kids to use their hands to create something delicious (they’ll be making a biscuit crust using their hands. Kids LOVE to feel dough!) while also providing a healthy serving of veggies to them. Paired with a cup of hot cocoa in the form of a sweet, delicious BOMB? We can’t think of a more exciting and cozier winter pair. Enjoy!
