Sauté the onion rings and celery in butter until the onion is soft and golden. Spoon alternate layers of crab, cheese (your choice - use sharp, cheddar, or Swiss), and onion/celery mix into pie shell.
In bowl, beat together eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Pour into pastry shell over other ingredients.
