After my Apple Pie Cone turned out way better than I expected there’s no way that I wasn’t going to follow it up with something similar, and when I got to thinking about other types of pies that I’d like to see in a more portable form the first one that came to mind was chicken pot pie.
So, I once again headed to the grocery store and picked up a pre-made pie crust, wrapped it around a cone-form and then baked it upside down in my 400° oven for ten minutes.
Instead of spooning apple pie filling inside of my cone this time though I packed it full of diced chicken pieces, sliced carrots, peas and chicken broth before covering it with a lattice top and placing it right-side up inside of a glass and back in the oven for another ten minutes to finish cooking.
Overall the Chicken Pot Pie Cone turned out just as amazing as its apple pie counterpart. If I had to choose a favorite though I’d probably give a slight nod to this one, simply because with all the chilly weather we’ve been having here in Wisconsin lately there isn’t much that tastes better than a nice warm chicken pot pie.

You’re a jerk for not letting me eat that

Now the apple pie might be ingenious but this one… not so much. Two problems: are you eating this cold? because hot would be a disaster.. and How do you keep it from running down your hand like ice cream??? Lick the sides…VERY CLASSY! LOL!

Nope, it was warm and wasn’t a disaster at all. You just need to sort of eat around the sides like you do with an ice cream cone and not take too many big bites out of one side at a time.

Have you seen the Pizza Cone? http://www.instructables.com/id/pizza-cones/?ALLSTEPS
I used to make Taco Cones by taking a corn tortilla, finding the exact center, and cutting (in a straight line) from that point out to the edge, then overlapping the cut ends, and securing with a toothpick. These “cones” then get placed upside-down in a muffin pan, then baked at 350 for about 10 mins. until they firm up in the cone shape. When cooled, remove toothpick, and fill with your favorite taco fillings.
Here’s a flour tortilla version: http://www.ohbiteit.com/2014/05/taco-cones.html

In New Zealand, meat pies (or vegetarian versions) are hand-held foods. Lots of variety. A lot like a pot pie, but solid enough to be a hand-held food. There’s even a breaded ‘lasagna topper’ which is a hand-held square of mince (ground beef).

I’m with Beth, and I’d liken it to the white man ‘discovering’ America. It was already there and the Indians had discovered it ages ago….
They even sell portable ‘chicken pot pies’ or just pies at McD’s in NZ.. plus a million other varieties at more adventurous retailers nationwide
