Let Them Eat “Wedding Pies”

It’s Wedding Wednesday at The BON BON and before I begin today’s feature, I just want to say Thank You to all who had an opportunity to tune in and watch me on The Martha Stewart Show yesterday, I had a blast!

Now, where is it written that you have to have a “wedding cake” on your big day.  Why not surprise your family and guests and have “wedding pies”.  This is exactly what we did at one of my bride’s wedding, we served miniature pies and it was a huge hit!

We served a mixture of ginger, peach, almond* blueberry, lime, coconut, pecan* apple, cranberry, walnut* raspberry frangipane* and strawberry tart

One of my favorites is the ginger, peach, almond. I thought it would be fun to share the recipe with you.  Trust me, your guests will love it!

Ginger Peach Almond Wedding Pie

Crust:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

3 tbs sugar

12 tbs cold unsalted butter

6 tbs ice water

Filling:

6 very ripe peaches

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup tapioca

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Topping:

3 tbs minced crystallized ginger

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup crushed toasted almonds

1/4 cup unsalted butter

Crust:  Have flour, salt, sugar, and butter cold and rub together with your hands to incorporate but still leaving small pieces of butter in the mixture.  Lightly toss with ice water.  Wrap in plastic and refrigerate, preferably overnight.  Roll out and cut to fit tart shells.  Prebake tart shells at 350 degrees F for a few minutes until golden.

Filling:  Combine all ingredients and fill prebaked tart shells, then bake at 350 degrees F until mixture just begins to bubble.

Topping:  Combine ingredients and rub together with your hands to form a crumbly topping mixture.  Cover tarts with crumb topping and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Makes 12 (4-inch) tarts

    I’m getting married in Charleston. Did you bake these yourselves individually ahead of time or hire a local bakery? I’d love to hire them if possible!

    This looks fabulous! I am curious about where to get the miniature foil pie pans. This would be great for bake sales for charities, etc. as well as parties and weddings…

    I’d love to do this for my wedding but would need about a week to get it done. Did you make them ahead of time and freeze them???

    For the wedding, did you make 4″ pies or where they 2.5″ pies. I’m interested in having pies at my wedding and can’t decide on the size. Thanks so much.

  29. Tara Guérard says:

    Definitely 4-6″ not mini ones, more like typical size you would see at a bakery… Good luck!
