The first thing you do is get the cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup of sugar and mix them up real good with 1/4 cup of melted butter and line the bottom of an 8 inch pie plate.

Then you add the 2 tablespoons of butter and stir it up again. Now put it in a 325 degree Dutch oven for 45 minutes until you get the little brown spots on top and the center is set.

Chicken Pot Pie

3 ½ pounds chicken

2 ½ tsp salt

½ tsp. saffron

4 stalks celery, thinly sliced

Chopped parsley

1 med onion, chopped

4 med potatoes, peeled, cut

¼ tsp pepper


2 cups sifted flour

½ tsp salt

2 eggs

4-6 Tbs. water or milk

Place chicken in Dutch oven, add salt, pepper, celery, onion and saffron. Add water to almost cover chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from broth. To make dough, place the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the eggs and salt. Gradually work eggs into the flour, adding only enough water to make a soft but not sticky dough. Knead five minutes. Cover the dough with clean cloth and let rest 30 minutes. Divide the dough in half and roll out each as thinly as possible into a 15 inch square and cut each square into 2 inch squares with a sharp knife. Add potatoes and celery to the broth; simmer 25 minutes until vegetables are tender. Taste the broth and add more salt and pepper if needed. Add the chicken pieces and bring to a boil. Slide squares of dough into the broth, a few at a time, pushing them down gently. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.
