My Favorite Little Peach Pies

Peach pies are one of my favorite fruit pies.  I've made them in the past - always a traditional type of peach pie - but this time I decided to try something different - peach hand pies.  These are the perfect size for a treat or dessert, they're fun and so easy to make and they taste just as good the next day!

I Stink at Making Pie Crust

My oldest son helped me with the dough and this is a great way to get your kids in the kitchen.  He enjoyed the process and we loved the end result plus, he saw me struggling, I stink at making homemade pie crust, and I was thankful for his help but do NOT be intimidated. You can easily substitute Pillsbury Pie Crust or any ready-made pie crust to save time and frustration!

Combine flour and salt in a bowl or the bowl of a food processor.  Next, add the shortening and pulse until a crumbly texture is achieved.  Combine the egg, 4 tablespoons ice water and vinegar and add this mixture to the food processor stirring until the dough forms into a ball and pulls away from the sides of your container.  Add more water if necessary.  Remove dough from the processor and shape into a disk.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator at least one hour.  I made mine a day ahead to save time and it was the perfect consistency.

Roll dough to ⅛ to ¼ inch thickness on a lightly floured surface and cut into 4-inch rounds.  I used a small bowl as a template and cut around it to achieve this size.  You can also buy a cookie cutter in that size but I didn't have one handy and didn't want to spend the money so I improvised.  😉

Once you have your mini pies cut spoon 1 tablespoon of the cooled peach mixture into the center of each pastry circle.  Moisten edges with water, fold pastry in half and use a fork dipped in flour to seal the edges.

Pour oil into a Dutch oven and heat to 375°.  Fry the pies 2 to 3 at a time for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown turning occasionally.  Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Serve while warm (but truth be told these are also great the next day!).
