Cooking Instructions

(Cook all sizes from frozen state)


Pre-heat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray, and for best results add a thin layer of butter to pies, or spray them as well. Bake for about 25 minutes or till light golden brown.


Heat oil to 350-375 degrees. Place pies into hot oil for about 8-9 minutes (about 5 minutes for our Mini pies), till golden brown. Remove from oil and enjoy.

Serving Suggestions: All the pies are delicious by themselves, but they also go great with a variety of dipping sauces. The Crawfish Pies are especially good with a remoulade sauce, and a favorite with The Original is jalapeno ranch or plain ranch.

NOTE: Cooking time and temperature may vary between ovens. Adjust as needed.
