Mini Peach Pies

IMG_9241IMG_9243

Today I decided to do something a little different and made mini peach pies! You follow the same recipe as the pie recipe I have posted, but you bake them in a cupcake pan. I used a ramekin to cut 4 inch circles out of the pie crust for the bottom of the pan, put in the filling, added the top layers, baked for 30 minutes, and they were ready to eat!

Raspberry Ribbons

My sister Lindsay introduced me to these and they are divine! Made these today for my friends and family and they were not disappointed.

Homemade Peach Pie

Homemade peach pie with vanilla ice cream is my favorite all time dessert! The warm pie melts the ice cream and you have this delicious peach/vanilla mixture. The crust is what takes this pie to another level though. Chance’s mom Sheila and sister Amber taught me how to do the crust and I will never try another recipe! This one is the best.

Fresh peach pie filling
Servings: 1 pie

  • 3/4 to 1 Cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Flour
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • (may add dash cinnamon)
  • 5 Cups sliced peaches
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, and salt. Then add peaches and butter.

Crust
Servings: 1/2 (If making top and bottom layer)

  • 1 Cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 Cup corn oil
  • 2 Tbsp. really cold water

Mix flour and salt. Add other ingredients and mix. Roll out between 2 sheets of plastic wrap (so it doesn’t stick to rolling pin) and put in bottom of pan.

Add filling, and repeat pie crust steps. Add 2nd crust to top of pie. Add slits for air vents.
Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
