Mini-Crawfish Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 lb frozen crawfish tails, thawed
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 small carrots, diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 4 cups chicken stock, heated
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, sliced, plus 8 tablespoons cubed
  • 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (3 oz) package cream cheese

Preparation

Crust:

Preheat oven to 325°F. Soften cream cheese and 8 tablespoons cubed butter and blend well. Stir in flour and chill for one hour in refrigerator. Separate dough; reserving 1/3 for pie tops, and using 2/3 for pie crust bottom. From pie-crust bottom portion of dough, create dough balls approximately 1 in diameter and place into bottom of muffin tin cups, flattening to form crust bottoms. Bake crusts only until golden brown.

 

Filling:

In a saucepan, add 6 tablespoons sliced butter and flour, stirring together over heat to create a roux. Cook until mixture is the color of peanut butter. Add all vegetables and saute until soft. Add crawfish, Cajun seasoning, and salt & pepper to taste. Saute mixture for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken stock and stir until boiling. Spoon mixture into pre-baked mini dough crusts. Top with a circle of unbaked dough cut from the reserved 1/3 of original dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serve while warm.
