For the biscuits:
2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled, plus more for your hands and as needed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk, divided
For the filling:
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup yellow onions, chopped
1 cup carrots, sliced or diced
1 cup celery, sliced or diced
1 cup mushrooms, roughly chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper, plus more to taste
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, plus more to taste
2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup whole milk
2 cups mixed vegetables
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley, plus more to taste
Step 1 – In a large bowl or food processor, whisk 2 cups of the flour, the baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt.
Step 2 – Add the 6 tablespoons of the cold butter cubes and cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or pulse several times in a processor until crumbs form.
Step 3 – Add 1 cup of milk to the flour mixture.
Step 4 – Stir or pulse the flour mixture until the dough comes together. It will be shaggy and a little wet.
Step 5 – If the dough is dry, fold in another tablespoon of milk. If the dough is too wet, fold in another tablespoon of flour.
Step 6 – With generously floured hands, shape the biscuit dough into eight or nine 1-inch-thick discs. The amount and size of the biscuits will depend on the size and shape of the baking dish being used for the pot pie.
Step 7 – Place the biscuits on a lined plate or baking pan, cover tightly, and refrigerate until ready to use or for up to 2 days.
Step 8 – Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Step 9 – Grease a 2 1/2-3-quart baking dish or a 9-inch deep dish pie dish that is 2 inches deep.
Step 10 – In a large skillet, pot, or 11-12-inch oven-safe skillet, melt the remaining butter over medium heat.
Step 11 – Add the onion, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and garlic.
Step 12 – Cook the veggies, stirring occasionally, until they have softened and released some liquid, about 5 minutes.
Step 13 – Stir the remaining flour, 1 teaspoon of the salt, the pepper, and the thyme into the veggie mixture until the flour has absorbed all the liquid.
Step 14 – Stir the broth and 1/2 cup of the milk into the veggie mixture.
Step 15 – Cook and simmer the veggie mixture until it has thickened to a thick soup-like consistency, about 7-9 minutes.
Step 16 – Stir the mixed vegetables and the parsley into the thickened mixture.
Step 17 – Transfer the filling away from the heat.
Step 18 – Taste the filling for seasoning.
Step 19 – Allow the filling to cool for 5 minutes.
Step 20 – Pour the cooled filling into the prepared baking dish.
Step 21 – Arrange the cold biscuits on top of the filling.
Step 22 – Brush the tops of the biscuits with the remaining milk.
Step 23 – Bake the pot pie for 25 minutes.
Step 24 – Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F and bake until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown, about 5-6 minutes.
Step 25 – Transfer the pot pie from the oven and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
Step 26 – Serve.
