    Hello Possum Queen!

    I tried your "A Cowboys Pot Pie" for dinner last night. OMG! It was even more delicious than I thought it would be. Since I always love the sourdough stuff, I made your sourdough crust too, very flaky...thanks so much for this recipe! I think I'll be hanging around here a lot!

    You are a woman after my own hart. This sounds great, I do have a question you talk about a sour dough crust…but I see no mention of it in the recipe. You then mention that your sister makes this with a ready made pie crust. Where does the sour dough come in? Never mind I just read a bit further and you answered all my questions. Now it sounds perfect. Thanks for a great post.

    My sister, being culinary-ly challenged and all, uses a ready-made pie crust and it comes out good.

    looks great in the photo. the filling scores a 5, as for the pastry. do you use a regular pastry as for a pie? or is it one meant strictly for savory heavier pies like this is? in any case.. i'll be sure to let you know how it comes out. oh yeah... now is see the recipe below... i am begining to get the hang of this site. there is a lot of stuff i don't understand yet. like the group ratings??? anyhow.. and what is a recipe honor? so many recipes, so little time.
