  2. Add in the onion, green pepper, celery, garlic, and Creole seasoning; stir/saute for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Add in crawfish, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and heavy cream; bring mixture to a boil.
  5. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the cream has reduced and the sauce is thickened.
  6. Make the piecrust: add flour, Creole seasoning and salt into the work bowl of a food processor; pulse on and off 3 times.
  7. Cut the cold shortening into small pieces and distribute it over the flour mixture; pulse the machine on and off 3 times, until the shortening resembles peas.
  8. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons ice water over the flour mixture, and pulse on and off until the dough begins to come together.
  9. If it appears dry, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.
  10. Turn the dough out onto a floured board, and roll into a disc, approximately 12 inches in diameter.
  11. Preheat oven to 375°; grease the edges of a 10-inch ovenproof baking dish, and transfer the crawfish mixture to the dish.
  12. Top the dish with the piecrust dough, and crimp the edges, making a few slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape.
  13. Bake the pie for 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
