Mini Peach Pies Recipe

Mini Peach Pies

It just isn't summer without a fresh peach dessert, am I right? I know, for many of us summer seems to be coming close to an end. Kids are heading back to school, vacations are coming to a close, and everything we love about these hot summer months seems to be wrapping up. But can't we just hold on to a little more of that summer magic? Can't we keep that fun, summertime feeling a little longer?

Yes we can, and as you can tell by the first sentence to this post, it involves peaches! Think about it, is there anything more summer than these fuzzy, sweet fruits? Baked into a delicious pastry or sweet, and you've got a summer-time snack that will keep you in shorts and flip-flops indefinitely!

We took our delicious Freeze Dried Peaches and dropped them into a flakey, homemade pie crust to give you the perfect hand-held dessert. Get ready, it's time for Mini Peach Pies!

Ingredients (Crust):
1/2 cup cold Water
3/4 cup Butter, cubed
4 Tbsp Shortening
4 Tbsp Sugar

1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Butter

First, make your pie crust.

In your BOSCH Food Processor attachment, add water, flour, butter, shortening, and sugar, and blend until a stick dough forms.

Remove dough from processor, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 3-4 hours.

Filling Ingredients

In a large bowl, combine re-hydrated peaches, brown sugar, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter, and mix together until your filling is complete.

Dough Circles

Remove dough, roll out on floured surface, then cut out crusts with a ramekin.

Dough with Filling

Place one dough circle on a cookie sheet and top with pie filling.

Pie Top

Place another dough circle on top, crimp the sides with a fork to seal, then slice top. Brush with egg wash.

Pie Baked

Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, or until tops are golden brown. Remove and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Peach Pie

These pies are everything you love about summertime! The delicious aroma of baked peaches will fill your kitchen and leave you craving more. The crust is perfect, just enough buttery goodness, combined with a flakey texture that will make your mouth water with every bite. Serve these up as a poolside snack, or delicious dinner dessert.

Summer is all about peaches, and there's no better way to enjoy them than in these hand-held pies!

Would this recipe work with Alta Artisan unbleached flour?

Hi Gwen!

Our Swiss Pastry flour is milled just for pies and pastry crusts, so it's definitely going to give you a lighter, flakyer crust, but our Alta Artisan has worked in everything I've used it in, from cookies to breads, so I think it's definitely worth a try. Let us know how it turns out!

I have ordered the Swiss Pastry flour and it will be delivered this week. Where ~ in your Blog ~ can I find a pie crust recipe using this flour?

Hi Gwen!

This recipe is a great all around pie crust recipe that you can use at any time. Also, if you go to our search bar at the top and type in "Pie" or "Swiss Pastry" you'll find an assortment of great recipes using this flour. Let us know how you love the flour!

What happened to the cousins?

Hi Barbara! With their families growing, the cousins wanted to spend more time focusing on things at home. They still stop by now and then though.
