During lent I usually try to cook more seafood during the week. This is the time that I LOVE TO EXPERIMENT with new recipes or change some of my meat recipe to seafood. My son had to make a pie for school for PI day on March 14. Since my kids love my chicken pot pie but since it was on a Friday…I decided to make a crawfish pie instead. I didn’t use the same ingredients as I did for my chicken pot pie for this recipe. I made 2 crawfish pie that day so I will share one recipe today and another one tomorrow. This one is a little more spicy and savory. 


Chopped onion, celery, bell pepper, and minced garlic


Add the heavy cream


Let the mixture cook for about 2 minutes


Spoon mixture into prepared pie shell


Place the top shell on top of the crawfish mixture


Brush the egg wash over the top and cut a few slit on the crust


Bake at 350 degree for about 45 minutes or until the top is a nice golden color


Let it cool for about 10 minutes then cut into the pie
