Since it is Thanksgiving today we thought we would show off a wonderful example of offering your guest pie as dessert at your country wedding. Pie can be the perfect wedding dessert since it comes in several different yummy flavors and also can be made in many different sizes. You don’t have to give up the idea of a wedding cake all together, think about adding pie to your sweets table or giving it as the wedding favor. Below are a few great looking pie dessert examples from real weddings and an awesome DIY Pie In A Jar wedding favor recipe. Hope you have a great holiday today and enjoy your pie!
Pie Crust Dough (fave recipe or pre-made)
2 12 oz. cans of cherry, apple or your favorite pie filling
2 Tb of sugar
1 large egg beaten
6 4 oz. mason jars, cleaned with lids and labels removed
Heart shaped cookie cutter
1 Cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Press the unrolled dough bit by bit into the jars a bit at a time (not too thick!) until the jars are lined with the dough up to the rims. Reserve some dough for toppers. Next, fill jars nearly to the top with filling of choice. Roll out reserved dough to roughly 1/8 inch thick and cut out 6-8 hearts. Place the filled jars on a sturdy cookie sheet and place into oven.
Bake at 325 degrees for roughly 30-35 minutes or until dough becomes a light golden color.
At that time, arrange the dough hearts on the pies, brush the hearts with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes until dough is golden brown all the way around the jars. If needed, place foil over the tops of the jars to keep the hearts from burning.
