small pies

Image

 

This week I wanted to make something for the blog that my family could also enjoy for Thanksgiving. I had already decided on pie, but couldn’t settle on one kind. So I made them all :) in small mini pies or galettes as they are officially named. Wikipedia told me that ‘galette’ is french for a round, flat crust. Basically a freeform pie. You all know by now that my baking skills are less than par and me making a pie crust will never be picture perfect. So this is usually the kind of pie crust I go for cause it fits the “rustic” look.

The dough is simple. Just flour, butter, sugar, and water. At the last minute I decided to infuse the sugar with a little fresh rosemary. The amount of sugar in pie crust is small so the flavor is light, but I think it added to the rustic element. 

Image

I had a handful of flavor combos I had been wanting to try out and here is a few:

Image

 

Blueberry & Ginger. And a bit of honey for sweetener.

The dark blue juice that ran from pie as it baked was really pretty ;)

Image

 

Blackberry & Goat Cheese. And honey, no sugar.

Image

 

I think this one was my favorite of the day.

Image

Pear, Walnut & Honey

Image

 

Mango & Pistachio. And honey.

I really wanted to do peach & pistachio, but it’s not the time of year for that and the store had mangos, so I settled. It was still delicious.

Image

 

Last, but not least: Fig, Rosemary & Honey.

I had a lot of figs left over from my flatbread post that I just stuck in the freezer and hoped to use at a later date. I’d never frozen figs before, but I think it worked out great and tasted good too!

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A YUMMY THANKSGIVING <3

One thought on “small pies

  1. Oh my goodness! You’ve tried so many of the flavor combinations I’ve had on my list as well — blueberries and goat cheese sounds phenomenal. I’ve been meaning to try figs, honey, and goat cheese, too — I hadn’t thought to add rosemary. And on the contrary, I think your galette crusts look perfect. Mine didn’t fold nearly as well when I tried. Love this, and love your wonderfully crisp photography, as always.
