Mini Peach Pies

Mini Peach Pies

These Mini Peach Pies are such a treat. Fresh peaches are sliced and baked in a crust with brown sugar, vanilla, and a touch of bourbon. This is a simple take on a traditional peach pie. It is sweet without being too sweet, and all of the ingredients serve to compliment the fresh juicy peaches.

I think peaches just taste like summer. They are just so juicy and fresh tasting. Even though they make me think of summer, I have good luck finding ripe peaches at my grocery store all year round. This means that I can eat Mini Peach Pies and pretend that it is summer in the dead of winter.

I recently completed a project that involved making over 100 mini quiches. I used 4-ounce disposable tins to hold the mini quiches, and since I bought them in bulk, I had over 800 left over. I also happened to have a significant amount of leftover pie crust – so it only made sense that I would make pies!

I love the idea of serving mini pies at a party. Fruit pies are notoriously difficult to slice and serve without making a mess. By making individual mini pies you avoid this issue, and everyone gets their own adorable little pie to eat. The 4-ounce disposable ramekins were the perfect size for the pies. It was just enough pie for one person. Here is a link to buy the aluminum foil ramekins online.

This recipe makes 6 mini pies, just enough to serve at a dinner party. Using store bought pie crust shaves off a lot of the preparation time. The active preparation time is just about 15 minutes, and the pies bake for just 30 minutes.

You could opt to serve these pies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The way that the ice cream melts into the pie and contrasts with the warm peaches is perfection.

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh ripe Peaches
  • 2 rolls of Pie Crust, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Bourbon (such as Four Roses or Makers Mark)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 tablespoon Melted Butter
  • Mini Pie Pans (I used 4 ounce tins)
  • Optional: Turbinado Sugar (sugar in the raw)

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. The first step is to remove the peach skin. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Use a spoon to gently lower the peaches into the boiling water. Leave the peaches in the boiling water for 1 minute. Use this time to prepare an ice bath (a large bowl of cold water and ice). Once a minute has passed use a spoon to remove the peaches from the boiling water and place them in the ice bath. Leave the peaches in the ice bath for 1 minute.
  3. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits. It should be easy to peel the skin off the peaches. Cut the peaches into small slices and place them in a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, flour, salt, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and stir to combine.
  4. Next, prepare the pie crusts for the mini pies. I used 4-ounce tins. Unroll the pie crusts, and use a biscuit cutter to cut 12 circles of dough. Use a rolling pin to make 6 of the dough circles 1/3 bigger and then place them in the bottom of the tins.
  5. Fill each pie crust with peach filling. You can slightly overfill them. Add a circle of pie crust on top, cutting slits in the top and sealing the pie crust closed with a fork.
  6. I recommend placing the pies on a parchment-lined baking sheet before placing them in the oven. The pie crusts might overflow a little and this makes for easy cleanup.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, and then remove the pies from the oven and brush them with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Add a sprinkle of turbinado sugar if you have some. Bake for another 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Serve warm - you can reheat the pies in the oven at 225 degrees before serving if you are making them in advance. Add a scoop of ice cream on top if you want!
