Let cook for a few minutes. Add flour and cook for another couple min.
Slowly whisk in milk, water and bouillon.

Lady and Sons Crust – Paula Dean

4 sheets frozen puff pastry
1 egg

Cut each sheet of frozen puff pastry into 1-inch strips, 8 inches long.
On a large cookie sheet, weave strips into a lattice large enough to cover pot pie. Brush beaten egg onto each lattice square.
Set oven to 350 and bake until dough rises and is a rich golden brown.
Place on baked pie and decorate with extra puff pastry.

You can make individual small pies to make it a little fancier and fun.

This is absolutely delicious.
