On cool nights, nothing hits the spot like a steaming homemade potpie—especially ones you can get on the table fast. The pinwheel crust on top has become my signature. —Kristin Shaw, Castleton, New York

"I used Pioneer no fat gravy mix instead of the jar of gravy because the taste is much better and no fat! I also used a bag of mixed veggies in the freezer and the low fat cresent rolls. This came out fantastic, hubby asked this morning if there was some left and planned on having for lunch. He wanted to know wwhen he was having this again!"

"The filling was excellent! Next time I will use a pie crust instead of the cresent rolls because rolls made crust a little sweeter than pie crust."

"I've made it twice now. Love the ease of making it. It's definitely nice to look at too. I took a picture of my results and shared on FB and everyone wanted the recipe."

"We do not sell jars of gravy here in Canada so I had to use a can which was not quite enough so made a little bit more from the drippings from browning the steak. We enjoyed it but thought maybe next time to add some potatoes and even sliced mushrooms to it. Very pretty to serve though."
