Give your favorite pot pie recipe a Halloween upgrade when you use crescent roll dough to create the crust and transform it into a spooky spider or octopus.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare your favorite pot pie filling (make enough to fill 2 ramekins) and cook according to recipe instructions. Fill the two ramekins with the fully cooked pot pie filling.
  2. Unroll the crescent dough and slice 6 of the triangles into 3 pieces (use a knife or a pizza cutter). This makes 9 legs/tentacles for each ramekin and you’ll use 8 of them; set aside the extra 2 for later.
  3. Use the two remaining large dough triangles and press them into circles.
  4. Take the ramekins and place each one in the center of a large dinner plate (it may slide around a bit—be careful). Drape 8 of the legs/tentacles over the edge of each ramekin as shown.
  5. Add a dough center on top. Use the 2 leftover legs/tentacles to roll up into dough balls and arrange on top of the pot pie crust. (These are supposed to be eyes or warts or bumps.)
  6. Place in a 375-degree oven for approximately 15 minutes or until fully cooked.
  7. Top with candy eyes and a spooky sign, if desired!
