Do you like Supernatural? Do you like pie? Yes? Most excellent.
So, pies. Peach pies. Does Dean even like Peach Pie? I figure any pie is a pie Dean would eat. However, Dean and Sam are kind of always on the go. So what’s better than a hand pie? Nothing. Because hand pies are the best on the go treats ever. Besides cupcakes.
So I made some peach hand pies.
Who loves pie.
Right here, Dean…right here…
Yes..that is a salt ring and a gun next to his pie. He would want to protect it at all costs.
So making these is incredibly easy.
Here’s what you’ll need to do!
– 2 sticks unsalted butter
– 2 1/2 cups flour
– 2 tbs sugar
– 1 tsp salt
– 6 tbs ice cold water
– 1 can peaches (dice peaches from their wedge form)
– 2 tbs sugar
– 2 tsp cornstarch
– 1 tsp cinnamon (I used Cinnamon Plus)
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1 egg
1. In a bowl combine flour, sugar, and salt.
2. Cut butter into cubes and add it into the dry. You can either use your hands to crumble up the butter or a food processor. Either way, you’ll want the mixture to look like pea sized pieces.
3. Slowly add in the table spoons of water and mix with hands until the dough sticks together when pinched.
4. Roll dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
1. Drain peaches from can and cut then wedges so their diced into smaller manageable pieces.
2. To the peaches add sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt and mix together.
3. Set aside while you prepare the crust.
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375
1. Remove from fridge after an hour and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Using some flour dust the surface you’re using and with a rolling pin roll out crust to be as thick or thin as you want. Just know that if its too thin, the liquid from the peaches might seep through.
3. Using a circle cookie cutter or a glass, cut out even amounts of circles as big or small as you want.
4. Place one half of the circles on a cookie sheet.
5. Spoon about a table spoon of filling to the centers of the dough on the cookie sheet.
6. Using the rest of the dough, cover each of the peach centered dough circles. Making a complete hand pie.
7. Using a fork, pinch all the edges together and poke the tops about three times per pie.
8. Crack an egg and whisk it together. With a pastry brush, brush the egg wash on the tops of the pies.
9. While egg is still wet, sprinkle some sugar on top. This will make a shiny but still sweet glaze/crust on the pie.
10. Bake for 18-20 minutes depending on your oven.
Remove pies when done and serve warm with whipped cream or wrap them in plastic wrap or foil for a snack
The best thing is that these can be eaten warm or cold (at least I like them cold as well).
You can use any pie recipe to make them into hand pies. Apple, cherry…maybe even pumpkin or sweet potato if you can manage it!
This one is for the fact that Dean finally feels like he has a home this season!
Until next month,
IGGLES erm uh.HUNTERS!
