SERVES: 12 (in 6 petite pies)
LEVEL: PRESTO (easy)
We are starting with your favorite pie dough recipe or for a quick fix use the Pillsbury Pie Crust roll outs (in the grocer refrigerator section)
½ Peck or 15+ Ripe peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 Fresh lemon squeezed over peaches immediately
3 Tbsp. Corn Starch
1 tsp. Pummull Spice *KB’s signature 7 Spice Cinnamon Blend!
1 cup sugar
Egg **for egg washing the dough
Sparkling coarse sugar (if desired 3 tsps.)
Mix Corn starch, Pummull Spice and sugar into peach slices (lemon juice already in!)
In 6 small pie or cheesecake forms (that have been sprayed with oil), line with pie dough to cover bottoms/sides and extra inch or so to fold over top. Place 1.5 cups of peach mixture in each pie form, fold dough border over top. Mix egg in cup and lightly brush the exposed top dough and sprinkle lightly with sparkling sugar and pinch of Pummull Spice.
Bake in preheated 375 degree over for 15 mins., reduce heat to 325 and bake 30-35 additional minutes. Remove from oven when golden brown and set aside. If using cake forms with removable sides carefully run butter Pknife sides to dough, to gently release pie from sides.
Peach Pie begs for vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce completes the sweet ending!
