Downeast Crabmeat Pie

Recipe by Aroostook

This is THE best recipe! Only requires 3/4 c. of crabmeat. Love this recipe with shrimp &/or lobster, too.

Not a bad recipe. It reminded me of crab cakes, which I\'m not too crazy about. I did like that it was really quick(except for baking time) and simple to put together. I recommend serving it with cocktail sauce.
