  1. STEP ONE: Make Pie Dough-- Cut butter into 1-inch pieces. Sift flour and salt together into large bowl. With pastry blender or two butter knives, cut butter into flour until mixture has the consistency of coarse meal. Quickly blend in enough cold water so that the dough will hold together enough to gather up into a ball. Wrap in wax paper and chill at least an hour, preferably overnight.

  2. When the pie dough is ready, cut into four 5-inch and four 6-inch pie crusts.

  3. STEP TWO: Prepare the Corn and Crab Stuffing-- Preheat oven to 375F Saute 1/2 onion, 1/2 green and red peppers, 3 sliced green onions, and garlic in olive oil, add Creole seasoning and cool.

  4. Place mixture in a bowl. Cut kernels off 1 cob; reserve cob and add kernels to vegetable mixture. Toss vegetable mixture with 1 pound crab meat.

  5. Spoon mixture onto center of four 5-inch crusts, drape 6-inch top crusts over, and seal edges. Bake at 375F on parchment-covered baking pan for 20 minutes.

  6. STEP THREE: Prepare the Sauce for Corn and Crab-- Cut kernels off of two ears of fresh corn. Place kernels in pan with heavy cream and reserved cob from Step Two.

  7. Reduce by 1/2 and remove cob. Add 1/2 red and green peppers, 3 sliced green onions, and 1/2 pound crab meat. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

  8. STEP FOUR: Assembly and Serving-- Arrange pastries on four dishes and top with sauce.
