Chicken pot pie

I've never made any pie before so this was my first time making one. I wasn't too sure if it was going to turn out right, so I warned my husband before hand that he might not have any food for dinner that night. Knowing him, he had way more confident in me than I had in myself.

Since I didn't have any vegetable shortening, I decided to make butter pie crust. I was extremely worried about the crust not turning out well as it is the foundation of a great pie. Despite the worry, I was still having high hopes for it to at least look pretty at the end of the day. Well, I guess I didn't expect my dough to turn out dryer than I had expected it to be. It was kinda breaking as I rolled it out which is why my pie ended up looking like this.

Although my first pie looked ugly, it turned out pretty well. The crust was flaky and and not too dry or soggy but I think I overfilled my pie which resulted in the filling to overflow while it was being baked. The next time I bake a pie, I'll just have to make it look more presentable and of course avoid over filling the pie.

The recipe for this chicken pot pie was taken from I shall post my version of the recipe once I've managed to get it to look perfect and pretty.
