Gulf Shores Alabama

If you saw the Food Channel's story on our Annual National Shrimp Festival, you may be looking for a recipe so you can make those award winning Cajun Pistols or Pistolettas (sp?) that the American Festivals Show just went on and on about.
Close as I can tell, this recipe should make something very similar to the delightful winning finger-food called the Cajun Pistol at the Gulf Shores National Shrimp Festival. In fact, these may be better, because I don't think the festival vendors use real butter, and it can sure make a difference. The best Cajun Pistols we have ever had came from a bakery in Lafayette, Louisiana called Poupart's Bakery.
(1902 W Pinhook Rd - (337) 394-5366 just across from the Acadiana Hotel)
