Did you have a crawfish boil on Mother’s Day? Do you have leftover crawfish languishing in your refrigerator? Peel those sweet little crustaceans and make some pies. No crawfish in your area? That’s sad, but fret not, these delicious pies can also be made with shrimp. Just cook them first and give them a rough chop and you’re ready to go.
This is actually one of the first recipes I came up with after starting Little White Apron last spring. However, I was not happy with the crust recipe so I never published the post. Now I have found the best crust recipe, ever. Granted, it makes a lot of crust. A lot of crust. I usually freeze half. The filling recipe will use about half of the dough recipe. Sometimes I have a little filling left and sometimes I have dough left. I have trouble with my filling to dough ratio apparently.
This is what they looked like before they became pies. They were delicious both ways.
