Individual Whole Peach Pies
Yield: 3 individual pies
 
Ingredients
Crust:
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 stick chilled unsalted butter, cut in pieces
  • ¼ cup ice water
Filling
  • 3 ripe peaches
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon. cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • milk/sugar for brushing/sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor, and process for a few seconds to combine. Add the butter, and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds. With the machine running, add the ice water in a slow, steady stream, through the feed tube, just until the dough holds together. Do not process for more than 30 seconds.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a work surface. Flatten, and form a disc. Wrap, and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  4. In a small bowl- stir together the brown sugar, and spices.
  5. Slice the peaches into halves and scoop out the pit. Fill the peach halves with the sugar mixture- making sure it's even so when you put them together it doesn't all spill out.
  6. Roll the dough out and cut out a round 4-6 inches wide (depending on the size of the peach.) You will need to re-roll the dough once for the third peach.
  7. Wrap the peach in dough, brush with milk or egg-wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  8. Place each one into a muffin tin or ramekin. (it should fit snugly or the peach will want to split apart.)
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  10. Let cool slightly, slice and enjoy!
