Easy Peach Pie

Easy (Peasy) Peach Pie Recipe - SavvyMom

There is no doubt that it’s peach season around most of our country, and luckily for us, it’s also pie season. If you combine the two, one of summer’s most delectable desserts can be found around tables everywhere in the coming months. I like to make pies just about as much as the next person, but I don’t always love the labour involved in putting one together, especially on a hot summer afternoon. I spotted these individual peach pies over on The Kitchn and I thought they were pure genius, so I’ve recreated my own version for you.

Using either store-bought or homemade pie dough, there is no peeling, chopping, rolling and crimping involved here. Essentially, the peach is sliced in half in order to remove the pit, the insides are sprinkled with a modest amount of sugar and healthy dose of ginger before being put back together and then wrapped in a layer of pastry.

Baked until golden, these individual pies are perfect for the kids, to pack for a picnic, or even when served at an adults-only dinner party. I liked mine garnished with a dollop of whipped cream, but you can serve them plain or with ice cream if you like.

Easy (Peasy) Peach Pie Recipe:

You’ll Need

  • 1 Store-bought or homemade pie crust
  • 4 peaches, sliced in half and pits removed
  • 1–2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1–2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 egg + 1 Tbsp water

Prep and Cook

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
    Grease four wells of a muffin tin and set aside
  • Lay your peach halves cut side up and sprinkle each piece with some of the sugar and ginger
    The amount of you use will be determined by the size of your peaches, but you definitely won’t need more than suggested in the recipe
  • Roll out your pie dough on a floured work surface and cut it into four even pieces
    Place one peach in the centre of each piece of dough
    Fold the dough over the peach and pinch the ends together at the bottom
    Repeat with remaining peaches
  • Whisk together the egg and water and brush each ball of dough with it
    Set each peach pie inside a muffin well and bake for 15–20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown

    I really liked this recipe that you prepared again and I tried to make it. I shared this recipe with my friends, what can I say about the compliments?
