I live in Costa Rica where we don't have things like frozen pie crusts (or even veggies!) or Crisco - many times have wanted to make one like grandma's but never made crust before, so never attempted it. One night, all I had was a can of cream soup (lucky to find in store!), 2 small cans of peas and mushrooms and some potatoes. I decided to give this a try and while the diced potatoes cooked, I made the crust (1/2 size) using just butter and put the whole thing in a qt size round ceramic casserole dish (about 8 x 4) and baked. Took a little longer for the crust to set in my little countertop oven, but it came out amazingly good! I can only imagine how good it would be if I had all the right ingredients and a proper oven, so try it - if a 1st time crust maker like myself can do it in such a primitive fashion with great results, you can probably make an awesome pot pie!
