12 pies (serving size: 1 pie)

The honey-citrus notes of dried apricots enhance the frozen peaches in this baked version of the classic fried pie.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare pies, combine first 6 ingredients in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Remove from heat. Add butter, stirring until butter melts. Stir in brandy and cornstarch. Cool slightly.

Step 2

Working with 1 Sweet Cream Cheese Dough circle at a time, remove plastic wrap from dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Spoon about 2 tablespoons peach mixture into center of circle. Fold dough over filling; press edges together with a fork or fingers to seal. Place pie on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Repeat procedure with remaining Sweet Cream Cheese Dough circles and remaining peach mixture. Freeze 30 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 4

Remove pies from freezer. Pierce top of each pie once with a fork. Place baking sheet on bottom rack in oven. Bake at 425° for 18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and filling is bubbly. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 5

To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla, stirring well. Drizzle evenly over pies.

excellent filling flavor, really portable and keeps well. dough needs a little more salt and with all the handling was a little tough, maybe try rolling in two batches and cutting appropriate circles.

Found plastic wrap tedious. Worked dough directly. Substituted w/1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour. Problem getting an even 5" round. Accordingly, had to decrease filling. Used a teaspoons worth in lieu of suggested 1/2 tablespoons worth? Still, great end product. Looks good - taste good.
