Peach Hand Pies


I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents on their farm when I was a young person, and one of the wonderful memories I have is going to the peach orchard with my family and picking peaches. My Grandmother would make many different recipes from the peaches but one of my favorites was her hand pies, or her Fried Peach Pie. This recipe is very close to my Grandmothers recipe, but my pies are not fried, they are baked. They could easily be fried but we enjoy them baked and the spice mix for this pie will have you asking for seconds!

Directions
In a large stock pot of boiling water, drop fresh peaches into the water for 1 minute, then remove and place in ice water. The skin should slip right off of the peach.

Place the sliced peaches into a large sauce pan.
Add the sugar, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and salt. Mix well.
Add the water for the peaches and bring the mix to a boil. Cook for 8 minutes.
Mix the corn starch with 1/3 cup of water then add it to the peach mixture.
Remove the peach mixture from the heat and continue to stir until the peach mixture thickens.
Let the peach mixture completely cool then refrigerate for 2 hours.
When ready to bake the pies, roll our the dough and cut into the shapes you would like to use.
Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the peach mixture into the center of each pie.
Moisten the edges of the dough and then seal your pie.
Generously spray a shallow baking sheet with a cooking oil.
Place the pies on the oiled baking sheet and brush the tops and edges with the beaten egg.
Sprinkle the tops with sparkling sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
