Coffee and pie, long a harmonious pair, are served together as one in this recipe from "Martha Stewart's New Pies & Tarts." Chocolate-covered espresso beans hint at the flavor of the filling below, which is spiked with both instant espresso and coffee liqueur.
The rich texture and slight tartness of creme fraiche is an ideal foil for tender (but not overly soft) peaches in this streusel-topped pie. As it cooks, the cream -- spread on the crust and dotted on the fruit -- sets like a custard.
Baked in single-serving disposable tins, these desserts are small, but the flavors inside-blueberry and raspberry-are big. The heart cutout (made with a cookie cutter) provides a peek at the filling. Be sure to send along napkins and plastic forks.
