Chicken Mushroom Pot Pie

Still paralyzed and brain dead from the pie making madness, I have not much else to say other than chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food.
Particularly, when homemade.
We made two versions on this particular day – one gluten-free for my dear Grace, and one full of gluten, for my flour loving friend and love, Brian.
Chicken Mushroom Pot Pie
2 Tbs. salted butter
2 cups mirepoix (chopped onion, carrot, and celery)
1 cup cooked and shredded chicken breast
1 8oz can cream of mushroom soup
sea salt and pepper
4 oz. Swiss cheese, thinly sliced
4 cups all purpose flour*
10 Tbs. butter, cold and cut into chunks
2 eggs**
2 Tbs. vinegar
2-5 Tbs. ice cold water
Pulse the crust ingredients in the food processor until crumbly. Transfer to a parchment lined work surface and form into two discs. Wrap in plastic and chill for several hours.
Saute the mirepoix in the butter over medium heat, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add the soup and stir until well combined.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
Roll out each dough disc large enough to fill a pie plate and then cover the filled pie. Place one dough sheet into the pie plate. Line the crust with the Swiss cheese. Fill with the chicken mushroom filling. Top with the second crust, trimming any edges.
Glaze with egg wash and sprinkle with rosemary salt.
Bake for about 35 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
*For a gluten free crust, use a gluten-free flour mix and add one additional egg.
Cool before digging in.
