Crawfish pies can be made ahead and enjoyed on the parade route or at a Mardi Gras party. Luckily, Mardi Gras and crawfish season overlap so it's a great time of year to work crawfish into recipes.

Crawfish pies aren't always easy to find in New Orleans. They appear at some festivals-principally, the Jazz and Heritage Festival that begins at the end of April. But that's just once a year, and I need a crawfish pie fix far more often.

This dish is Emeril's take on a New Orleans classic. Try to source Louisiana crawfish when making this at home.

Crawfish Pie **Good. I used 2 puffed pastry sheets and it made 18 pies. I had a ton of left over filling. I think I could've made 50 pies with the amount of filling I had.
