  • 2 pods Pappy’s Pie Dough, thawed but still chilled
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 package (9 oz) frozen peas and pearl onions
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Start by ensuring your Pappy’s Pie Dough pods are thawed but still chilled for the perfect texture.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan with the chicken broth and let them simmer until they’re fork-tender.
  3. Remove the chicken from the broth and add the diced carrots and potatoes. Cook them over low heat until they’re tender and full of flavor.
  4. Chop the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and add them back into the simmering broth, carrot, and potato mixture.
  5. It’s time to bring in the frozen peas and pearl onions, stirring them in gently.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1/2 cup of water, then pour it into the broth mixture to help thicken the filling to perfection.
  • If necessary, adjust the thickness of the filling with additional water. Remember, it will thicken slightly during baking. Once you have the perfect consistency, transfer the filling to a casserole dish or divide it among four individual serving pie dishes.
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F. Stack the two pods of Pappy’s Pie Dough and roll out the dough large enough to cover your casserole dish or individual pie dishes.
  • Gently lay the dough over the top of the casserole, fitting it just inside the rim. Fold the edges under and crimp them for a lovely, rustic appearance. Don’t forget to cut steam vents into the crust to ensure a crispy finish and prevent a messy oven!
  • Place the pot pie on the bottom oven rack and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is a beautiful golden brown.
  • If you’re a planner, you’ll love that this chicken pot pie recipe can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for later baking. Simply follow the instructions up to step 9, then wrap and freeze. When you’re ready to enjoy, bake it according to step 10, adding a few extra minutes if needed.

Hey pastry fans, have you tried a Bear Claw Croissant? This sweet and flaky puff pastry has been a hit for over a hundred years! It all started with Austrian bakers who got inspired by the shape of a bear’s paw and called it “Bärentatze.” It’s made of a soft, yeasty dough filled with almond paste and sliced almonds.

In the USA, the Bear Claw Croissant is a popular spin-off that combines the classic bear claw flavors with the buttery, flaky texture of a croissant. It’s a mouthwatering mix of cultural traditions and deliciousness!

The Bear Claw is typically made with a tender and flavorful dough with an almond-flour based filling. However, for a softer texture, some bakers recommend using almond paste instead. Once the filling is in place, the pastry is topped with sugar and slivered almonds for a touch of sweetness.

Bear Claws can be made with a variety of fillings, such as cinnamon, cherry, apple, or cream cheese. At Dutchland Foods, we take pride in honoring the tradition of the Bear Claw Croissant by crafting each pastry with care, making sure it has the classic semi-circle shape and curved edge. We believe that food is not just about eating, it’s also about celebrating culture, tradition, and creativity.

So whether you’re a chef who wants to offer something unique to your customers or just a pastry lover in search of new flavors, come try the Bear Claw Croissant and experience the magic of culinary innovation and creativity!

If you’ve never heard of Kouign Amann (pronounced “kween ah-mahn”), you’re missing out on one of the most delicious French pastries out there. This Breton pastry is a caramelized, buttery treat that’s flaky and crispy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside.

Kouign Amann, which means “butter cake” in Breton, is made with only a few simple ingredients: flour, butter, sugar, and yeast. The dough is rolled out and layered with butter and sugar, then folded into a square or circle shape. It’s then baked until the sugar and butter caramelize and the pastry is crispy and golden brown.

Legend has it that the Kouign Amann was invented by accident in the 19th century by a baker who was in a rush and accidentally mixed up the ingredients for his bread dough with butter and sugar. Luckily for us, he decided to bake the dough anyway and the result was a delicious new pastry that has become a staple in French bakeries and cafes.

Kouign Amann can be enjoyed at any time of the day, but it’s especially popular for breakfast or as a mid-morning snack with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s also a perfect dessert to serve after a dinner party or special occasion.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try making Kouign Amann at home, there are plenty of recipes and tutorials available online. Just be warned, it’s not the easiest pastry to make and requires some patience and skill. But with its delicious, buttery flavor and crispy, flaky texture, the effort is well worth it.

Once you’ve fallen in love with the delicious, buttery flavor of Kouign Amann, you’ll be happy to know that Dutchland Foods can create many different flavors and fillings of this delectable pastry for your in-store bakery or wholesale needs. Whether you’re looking for classic butter and sugar, or more unique flavors like raspberry, chocolate, or apple, we can customize our Kouign Amann to fit your needs.

Apple pie is a classic dessert that is enjoyed all year round, but especially during the fall season. If you’re looking for an old-fashioned apple pie recipe that will remind you of grandma’s baking, then this is the recipe for you. In this recipe, we use Pappy’s Pie Dough, which is a pre-made pie crust that is easy to use and produces a flaky crust that is perfect for apple pie. We recommend using tart baking apples such as Haralson or Granny Smith for the best results.


  • 4 pods of Pappy’s Pie Dough, thawed but still chilled
  • 5-7 tart baking apples
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Ensure your Pappy’s Pie Dough Crusts are thawed, but still chilled.
  2. For each crust (top and bottom), roll out on a floured surface to about 12” in diameter and ¼” thick. (You’ll likely need more than one pod for each crust if you are using a deep dish pie tin).
  3. Place the bottom crust in a 9″ pie pan with the crust overlapping the sides.
  4. Core and pare the apples. Slice them thinly.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix the sugar, flour, salt, spices, and apple slices. If the apples are not tart, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
  6. Place the apple mixture in the pie crust and dot with butter. Place the top pie crust layer on top and crimp the edges.
  7. Make 1″ slits or with a fork in 3 or 4 places on top of the crust for steam vents. Sprinkle the top crust with large crystal decorator’s sugar for a professional look.
  8. Bake at 400°F for 50 minutes.
  9. Cool on a rack to let set prior to serving warm or at room temperature.

This recipe is easy to follow and will produce a delicious, old-fashioned apple pie that is sure to impress your family and friends. The combination of tart apples, warm spices, and flaky crust is the perfect dessert for any occasion. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or enjoy it at room temperature with a cup of coffee or tea. Either way, this apple pie recipe is a classic that you’ll want to make again and again.
