    Meanwhile, heat oven to 450°F. In small bowl, mix melted butter, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt until well blended. Unroll pie crusts on 2 large ungreased baking sheets; brush with seasoned butter. With pizza cutter or knife, cut pie crust into 4x1-inch strips. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with pot pie.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    If you like your pie crust crackers cheesy, sprinkle 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese on top of each crust after you brush with butter, before cutting them into strips.
  • Tip 2
    If you like peas in your pot pie, you can add 1/2 cup frozen sweet peas (thawed) 10 minutes before you stir in the cornstarch mixture.
