Super Simple Mini Peach Pies + 20 Other Delectable Peach Recipes!

This time of year there is only one thing I look forward to more than eating fresh-picked tomatoes….eating fresh-picked peaches! I love everything about them. The beautiful color, the delicious smell and juicy taste, and all the wonderful things you can MAKE with them! My daughter-in-law Kaitlyn feels pretty much the same way and today is sharing some recipes you won’t want to miss!!

Kaitlyn writes…….   When I was growing up in Southern California my family had a few fruit trees in our backyard, one of which was a peach tree. As a kid I completely resented these trees because it was my job to pick up all the fruit that fell off the trees. Oh how I hated picking up that nasty, rotten fruit. Partly out of resentment and partly because I was a picky eater, I always refused to eat any of the peaches. I can just hear the collective gasp of everyone reading this post 😉 Who says no to fresh, California peaches?? I’ve since learned the error of my ways and have gained a love for delicious, juicy peaches. Now that I live in Utah I luckily still have access to fantastic fresh peaches. The best ones come from Brigham City where they have Peach Days every September!

If you’re anything like me you’ll look for anyway to eat more peaches while they’re in season. I love them by themselves, mixed  in my oatmeal, in cobblers, the list goes on and on! Jillee recently found a super simple pie crust recipe that she thought would be great to use with a peach pie. So I got stuck with the ardous task of testing it out in the kitchen…poor me 😉  The result was even better than I expected! This recipe is perfect for novice bakers like myself and tastes like you spent a lot more time slaving away in the kitchen than you did.

Mini Peach Pies

Adapted from The Country Cook and Food Network Magazine

Makes 4 mini pies about 4 inches in diameter and 1 inch deep

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten

You’re going to start by making the crust. Mix the flour and salt in a medium sized bowl. Add the oil and water and stir until well combined.

Form the dough into a ball and then cut it into eight sections. I cut mine into four pieces and then cut those pieces in half.

I used these great little ramekins that I found at Tai Pan Trading for a couple of dollars each as my pie plates. But if you don’t have something like that on hand you could use a muffin tin.

Take one of the little sections of dough and spread it out on the bottom and up the sides of your ramekin to form your bottom crust.

Add your peaches to the pie. You’ll want to use about half a peach per pie. Top the peaches with about a quarter of a tablespoon of butter and a dash of sugar.

Now comes the only slightly tricky part of this recipe – the top crust.  Take another of the small sections of dough. I ended up using my hands to pat the dough down until it was about the right size to cover the top of the pie. When pieces crumbled off I just smushed them back on.

Once the dough is the right size, carefully pick it up off your cutting board. I used a cleaver and slid it under the dough. You could also use a spatula.

Now place the dough on top of the pie, pat it down a little bit and crimp the top and bottom crusts together. Mine ended up looking “rustic.” 😉

Brush the top of the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

Now dig in and enjoy!
