My Foods 1 students have been busy creating festive pie crusts. Visit my other blog for the delicious, super easy flaky crust and frugal ways to create pies for a crowd. I made two whole chickens for 32 students and divided it into 1-cup portions, as well as making homemade broth to cut down on costs. I made the chicken and broth a week ahead of time during a teacher work day and froze it over the weekend. I’d say these pies were a delicious hit.
They can also be frozen unbaked. This would work for leftover turkey too. I’m thinking we may be doing this again after our Thanksgiving dinner at school. I may freeze the leftovers for turkey pot pies after the school break. Hooray for freezer cooking!
I’m especially proud of my student’s first attempt of making homemade crust made with oil and milk, not the classic butter and ice water. This was an easy to roll, flaky pie crust.
