Cthulhu Pot Pies

Things you’ll need:
  • Pot Pie Filling, see below or use your favorite recipe
  • 1 batch of Biscuit Dough, see below or use your favorite recipe
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced for the eyes
  • Cheddar cheese for accents
  • 1 Egg, beaten – this will be your “glue”
  • 2 oven safe bowls or large ramekins, 4-6oz capacity
  • Rolling Pin
  • Sharp paring knife or pizza cutter
  • Cookie sheet
  • Flour for dusting
  • Cooking spray
  • Aluminum foil

Step 1: Preheat oven to 450°F.
Step 2: Dust your work surface well with flour, biscuit dough can be sticky. Roll out your dough to about 1/4”, not too thin or it will start to rip. Place your bowl or ramekin face down on the dough and cut out a circle. If you’re paranoid (and you should be!), cut about 1/4” away from the outside edge to have some working room.
Step 3: Now that you have the face, make your tentacles! Cut out a square, about 1” wider than your bowl. Then shape the top so that it’s the same width as the bowl, keeping the bottom wider. Aka, form a trapezoid.
Step 4: Using your knife or pizza cutter, cut the 8 tentacles, about 3/4 of the way up the dough from the bottom. Separate a little bit and then adjust the length of each one. Some should be shorter than others. Attach tentacle mouth to face using a little bit of the beaten egg on the bottom and pressing it down a bit.
Step 5: Then make the eye ridge by rolling out a strip of dough and flattening it in the shape of a very wide “W” and again using the egg, attach it to the top part of the face and lightly press down to seal.
Step 7: Fill your bowl with hot pot pie filling/stew most of the way full – leaving about 1/2″ of room at the top! Place it on the cookie sheet. Take a 12” strip of aluminum foil and roll it up loosely into a tube. Wrap it around the bottom half of the bowl and then spray it with cooking spray to prevent sticking – this will brace up the tentacles.
Step 8: Use your knife or a small spatula to help lift the face off the floured surface and lay over the top of the bowl. It should cover the edges, just barely. Position tentacles over aluminum foil so they’re not touching. Place your eyes in their proper spots and sprinkle cheese on the eye ridge. If you don’t like tomato, you can use dough or olives for the eyes, however proper Cthulhu eyes are red. Brush beaten egg on the top to give it a really good golden shine.
Step 9: Bake! On the center rack of the oven for 8-10 minutes until a medium golden brown. Remove from oven and use a spatula to lift it off the cookie sheet. Then carefully remove foil roll (there might be a little breakage if you’re not careful) and let it cool a few minutes. Eat!
