These handheld pies can go directly from the freezer to the oven to bake. From frozen, place on a baking sheet, brush with egg wash, and bake according to the recipe but for a few extra minutes.

Cook's Notes

To freeze properly, place freshly prepared pies in a single layer on a baking sheet and put in the freezer. Once they are frozen solid, they can be stacked together in a resealable bag or wrapped in plastic for easy storage.

    Amazing! I added 1 diced potato, an extra carrot and celery stalk, as well as some peas, substituted chicken stock instead of broth and like a past reviewer, pepper jack instead of the parmesan and got a very hearty amazingly delicious filling! As for spices I added a pinch of cayanne and ground pepper for a little heat. This quickly became a fan favorite in my house and was easy peasy!

    These are phenomenal! The crust is so light and flaky, the filling is delicious (I subbed pepper jack or parmesan), and they are fun to eat. My husband said they are the best things I've ever made and my kids loved them. I'll definitely be making more with various fillings to fill my freezer!

    I love this recipe. I only made one small change - I cut 6" circles of dough instead of 5". I started out with 5", but had a really hard time getting 1/4 cup of filling inside without it oozing out. I just rolled the dough a little thinner, made 6" circles, and had no trouble after that. I doubled the recipe - my husband and I each eat two, and my daughter eats one, and that leaves enough for 3 more meals in the freezer.

    For a "Martha Stewart" recipe I was disappointed in the thoroughness in the directions for the freezer since this was 1 of the recipes included in Freezer recipes. Didn't say exactly how to cook/warm-up after being frozen - thaw first? how long to cook if frozen uncooked or warm up in micro if frozen after baking, etc. I am giving these to my da. who just had a baby and I don't know exactly how to tell her to eat them after coming out of freezer.

    Spent today trying to make the "freezer my friend" and I included this recipe. They are delicious. I didn't have the time or energy to do the dough so I used puff pastry out of the freezer (1 box yields 10 circles) and the results were wonderful. I do intended on trying the pastry dough next time to compare. My family will love this (as I have already sampled the merchandise :-)! Awesome recipe (and inexpensive, really).

    This is one of the easiest, and most flavorful pot pie I have ever came across. I did make a few changes, I added another cups of chicken, making it 2 cups total, and added two potatoes. I like it a bit heartier! When I made them I intended to have them in the freezer, just in case, but my family ate everyone within 3 days! Needless to say they were amazing!

    I also doubled the recipe as we have a family of six and I wanted to have some left over to be able to freeze. This is a time intensive recipe. It took me several hours from start to finish. Next time I'll be using rotisserie chicken and store bought broth to cut down a bit on time spent making this.

    These are delicious! For this amount of filling, I doubled the pastry recipe, and it made 21 pies. Also sprinkled extra Parmesan on after the egg wash. Tip: hold the dough circle in your hand like a taco to ease filling
