I want to make a pot pie to take to my mom's house for her birthday. I'll be taking it with me on an hour and a half train ride. Am I better off baking the pie at home before I leave and re-heating it at her house, or taking it with me "raw" and baking it at her house? I'm trying to avoid ending up with a soggy or dried out crust.

I'd bake it maybe 3/4 of the way at home, just so the crust doesn't get soggy and the rest of the way when you get there.

Or you could take the crust and filling separately and assemble and bake once you get there.

I also vote taking separately and assembling on site. How sweet of you!

Ok, so I'm thinking, put the bottom crust into the pan, put a piece of wax paper or parchment paper down and place what will be the top crust over that. Encase that whole crust in pan thing in a plastic bag. Put filling in plastic lidded container. Assemble at her place and pop in oven? Thank goodness she bought me a cake carrier for my birthday last year! Although, actually, for dessert I'm bringing chocolate and butterscotch chip pecan oatmeal raisin cookies. But those will be easy to transport too. My siblings are bringing thins too. She prefers to hang out at home with all of us that go out on her b-day.

I was hoping for a thread about a vehicle made out of pot pie.

Yeah, I was on the same wave length. It made me think of the cupcake cars they made for Burning Man one year and then I was like, now they are making pot pie ones.
