                         dough, chilled (10-inch pie shell)
    3      tablespoons   butter
      1/4  cup           diced red pepper
      1/2  cup           diced onions
    3      tablespoons   flour
    1      pound         crawfish tails

    2      tablespoons   green onions -- chopped
                         Salt and cayenne -- to taste
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a floured surface roll out dough to a 10-inch
circle. Transfer to a
 large lightly-greased cookie sheet. In a saute pan melt butter. When it begins to
foam add red
 peppers and onions, and cook for 2 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 3
minutes. Add
 crawfish and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and fold in cheese and
green onions.
 Season to taste with salt and cayenne. Mound crawfish mixture in center of pastry
circle, leaving a
 2- to 3-inch border of pastry. Fold excess pastry up over filling, layering it
over, but not completely
 covering filling. Work around circle, continuing to fold over previous fold,
until it forms a rustic,
 free-form tart. Slide cookie sheet into oven and bake for 35 minutes
