Whole Grain Peach Hand Pies Recipe
Flaky peach hand pies: a delicious dessert!
- whole spelt flour: 1 cup
- cold butter, cut into cubes: 1/2 cup
- water: 1 tablespoon
- brown sugar: 2 tablespoons
- sea salt: pinch
- ripe peaches: 2
- minced ginger (optional): 1 teaspoon
- flour: 1 tablespoon
- milk: 2 tablespoons
Step 1: Prepare the dough: in the bowl of your food processor, add the flour, cold butter cubes, sugar, and salt, and pulse a few times. Continue pulsing, while adding the water—a little bit at a time—until dough ball forms. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Step 2: Chop peaches into small chunks. Add to a small bowl, with sugar, ginger, and flour. Allow mixture to sit for about 20 minutes. (Strain excess liquid.)
Step 3: Roll out dough until it's 1/4 inch thick. Using a 3 - 4 inch cookie, or biscuit cutter, cut out circles.
Step 4: Place 1 - 2 teaspoons of peach mixture in the center of each circle.
Step 5: Fold over, and seal edges using a fork. Cut 3 slits into each hand pie. Brush tops with milk and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
