It's Snowing, It's Snowing! It rarely snows here in Holland and this weekend we had the most beautiful snowfall! I love snowy days filled with warm comfort foods. I have wanted to make a homemade pot pie for awhile now and this was the perfect weekend to give it a try! It came out delicious... and the dough is super buttery (and easy to make)! Next time we are thinking of adding chunks of potato to the mix. Get cozy and enjoy this delicious tummy-warming pot pie!
