Ingredients

  • 5 peaches peeled and sliced (approx. 3.5 cups)
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • pinch of salt
  • zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 pre-made refrigerated pie crusts rolled
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1/4 cup of cinnamon and sugar mixture equal parts for dusting (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in large pan, add vanilla. Blend in sliced and peeled peaches and toss to coat. Add sugars, spices, salt and lemon zest. Cook over medium heat until peaches are soft and liquid is reduced. Remove from heat and strain peaches.
  • Unroll premade pie crust and press with rolling pin to stretch. Using a small bowl (approx. 4 inches wide) cut out circles from the pie crusts to yield about 14 circles. Fill circles with 1 tablespoon of peach mixture in the middle, being careful not overfill. Fold circle over to create a filled semi-circle and press edges to seal and make decorative edge with the back of a fork. Continue process until all hand pies are completed.
  • Place hand pies on parchment-lined baking sheet. Beat egg white with 2 tbs of water to create egg wash and lightly brush onto hand pies. Dust hand pies with cinnamon-sugar blend. Bake hand pies for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove the pies from the oven, and let stand to cool slightly before serving.

Notes

Pies can be enjoyed on their own or served warm with vanilla ice cream
