Pot Pie Squares:

  1. In a food processor, add flour, egg, egg yolks and salt. With processor on add 5 tablespoons of milk through the chute. The dough should come together easily and form into a ball. If it's too dry, add an additional tablespoon of milk.

  2. If it's too wet, add flour a tablespoon a time until dough forms easily into a ball. (If desired, use a stand mixer or mix by hand.)

  3. On a floured surface flatten dough into a circle. With a pastry rollerr using flour as necessary to keep from sticking. Roll out to about ⅛ inch thickness.

  4. Using a pizza cutter cut into approx 2-inch squares. If there's extra dough on the edges, roll into a ball and repeat.
