When peach season arrives, we can’t wait to use these fuzzy stone fruits as much as possible! Instead of a traditional peach pie, try these little hand pies that are portable, snackable and affordable. The peaches’ natural sweetness is enhanced with just a touch of cinnamon and sugar, and then tucked into rounds of prepared pie crust for a beautiful, handmade dessert that comes together in under an hour.

Directions

  1. Dice the peaches into 1/2-inch pieces. Bring the peaches, both sugars, cinnamon and salt to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until peaches and syrup are thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  3. Unroll the pie crusts and using a 4-inch round cutter, cut 6 circles from each pie crust. Transfer the pie crust circles to a baking sheet. Divide the peach filling evenly between each pie crust, placing it in the center of each round.
  4. Fold each pie crust in half and crimp the edges.
  5. Whisk together the egg and water. Brush each hand pie with the egg wash.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until hand pies are golden brown.

Recipe Tip: Peach hand pies can be made up to 3 days in advance. Prepare and refrigerate the unbaked hand pies. Alternatively, place them in the freezer and bake them from frozen when ready to serve, adding 2 minutes to baking time.
