Nothing screams "summer!" with more enthusiasm than a peach pie. But as nice as the traditional dish is, it's meant to be enjoyed sitting at the table, hopefully a la mode. Nothing against that, but sometimes you want something a little more portable because you're reading a book poolside or running around the lawn with a huge dog. That's where these easy peach hand pies come in. A flash to whip up, you can bring these easy desserts to the park, to the beach, or on your morning commute. Easy as pie.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Shape piecrust into a ball; divide ball into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 4-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. (Cover dough circles with a damp towel to prevent drying.) Stir together peaches, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon peach mixture onto each dough circle, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Moisten dough edges with water; fold circles in half to form half-moons. Crimp edges with a fork to seal; cut slits in top of pies, and place on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet.

  • Bake at 400°F until golden brown, about 14 minutes. Remove and cool 10 minutes before serving.
