    2      pound         Crawfish
 
 Melt butter over low heat in a large skillet.
 Gradually add flour and cook slowly, stirring constantly until a very light roux
begins to form. Add veggies and continue to cook, stirring until veggies 
   are very soft. Add salt, brand, pepper and cream. Mix gently but thoroughly and
 cook for 3 additional minutes over low heat, then add crawfish tails and cook
 for 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.
 Cool. Spoon cooled filling into unbaked  pastry shell. Place a top crust over
filled pie. Moisten and seal edges. Flute as desired. Cut 6 slits in the top
crust, then bake at 350~ for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool
and serve. (wrv)
