Wedding Pie!

Hello fellow bloggers!  I am back from a whirlwind weekend of fun.  Our GREAT friends Kate and Dave aka Mr. and Mrs. Whisenand were married just outside of Whitefish this past weekend and it was BEAUTIFUL!  We were so happy to take part in such an amazing celebration and we had such a wonderful time.  They did a very unique thing for their dessert, instead of a cake they had a few of their friends make pies and bring them along.  It fit perfectly with the outdoor MT themed wedding and they were all a HUGE hit.  I myself made a pie and well it was MY FIRST real pie experience and I'm very happy with the way things turned out.  I got the crust recipe from my friend Emily, who was a lifesaver because this recipe was so easy.  And I found the filling recipe online.  It turned out perfectly and it was actually quite easy, so I say GO make a pie all of you! :-)
I wish I would have had my camera at the actual wedding so I could have taken a picture of the pie table, it was absolutely beautiful!

The crust recipe is as follows...
1 cup flour
1tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 T ice water (must be ice water!!)
8T butter

Mix flour, salt, sugar in food processor.  Add butter and mix in food processor until a cornmeal consistency.  Add ice water and mix with hands until no too sticky/dry (add more flour or water if necessary).  Make into a ball and freeze in plastic for 10 min or refrigerate up to a week.
Roll out dough on floured surface to 2in larger than pie plate.  Drape over greased pie plate; press down to fit.  Here you could add fork designs if you aren't doing a top crust. 
Freeze for 10 min.
Prebake if filling is wet, otherwise follow pie instructions.
Repeat and make another ball of dough if you are doing a top crust. I made a braid around the edge, which I found the instructions to online as well.  

Filling recipe is from this website, she also lists a crust recipe that you could follow...

As this is not a part of the actual challenge there is no logan rating and it does not count towards my number of recipes.  I was just really excited about it and wanted to share!!! :)

  1. I'm so happy you were there! And guess what? While we didn't get to try all the pie at the wedding, Emily saved a slice from every pie, so I'm about to have a slice of yours now! Thank you so much, dear friend. You're truly wonderful.
