Peachy Blueberry Hand Pies / #BlueberryWeek

Today I am sharing a recipe for Peachy Blueberry Hand Pies as part of #BlueberryWeek! This is a simple and quick-to-make recipe. That is because I used pre-made pie crust that you can buy at the grocery. I actually prefer to make my own pie crust when I need it, but life is often times busy and complicated, and sometimes making pie crust is just not on the schedule. But being busy is not an acceptable reason to not be able to enjoy these cute and tasty Peachy Blueberry Hand Pies! 

Don't forget to check out all the tasty recipes from my fellow #BlueberryWeek bloggers. The list is at the bottom of this page and there are a lot of  incredible recipes to check out!

Peachy Blueberry Hand Pies 
(makes 8-10 hand pies)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 pint Fresh Blueberries
2 pounds Fresh Peaches
1/2 of a medium lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 cup light Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon  Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
1 box pre-made Pie Crust Dough
1 3 1/2" Circle Cookie Cutter 
1/4 cup sugar for sprinkling on top 


Peel and chop your peaches into smaller than bite size pieces. Add the chopped peaches and the blueberries into a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, vanilla, light brown sugar and the corn starch to the bowl and mix together. 
Roll out the pie dough so it is smooth. Use the cookie cutter to cut out the pie circles.  I used a 3 1/2" circle, but you can use larger or even smaller. The problem with the smaller circle is that it can only handle a very small amount of filling, making your pie mostly crust. But experiment with sizes to find the one you like! 

Use a brush to spread the melted butter around all of the dough circles. This will help the two pieces of dough stay together when they are baking.
 Place the filling into the middle of the dough.
Place another circle of dough on top of the fruit. Use a fork to go around the edge of the pie and crimp the two sides together. Use the tip of a knife to put a small slit in the top of the dough to allow heat to escape. Sprinkle sugar on top.
You could also use brown sugar on top, if you want. It gives a great flavor to the pie. Place the pies in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes. They don't take long, but keep an eye on them for the last couple minutes, in case you need to add more time.

 Enjoy!

Creamy Peach Hand Pies

Today I am participating in the Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge. This is a fun challenge that really gets your creativity flowing. This months two ingredients? Peaches and Cream. Can you say yum!? I wanted to make something special, and several different ideas came to mind, but these Creamy Peach Hand Pies were the clear winner! They are simple to make (I used ready made pie crust), incredibly cute, and you can be sure that whoever tastes these pies will love them!
Creamy Peach Hand Pies
(loosely adapted from A Feast for The Eyes)

3 ripe Peaches
1/4 cup Sugar plus 2 teaspoon Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Flour
Pinch Salt
1 1/2 ounces Heavy Whipping Cream
1 large Egg Yolk
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 box unbaked Pie Shells
1 Egg,  beaten
Peel, halve, and pit your peaches.
Place your peaches in a pan on top of the stove.
Heat the peaches over medium heat until they are soft 
and the juices have emptied into the pan.  
This will help prevent the crust from becoming soggy.
This should take about 10-15 minutes.
Once the peaches are nice and soft, cut the peaches
into thin slices. Set aside.
Mix together the 1/4 cup sugar, flour and salt.
In a separate bowl , mix together the cream, egg yolk,
 vanilla and cinnamon. Add in the dry ingredients and mix 
until smooth.
Pour the cream mix over the peaches.
This is the pie mold that I used. It isn't really necessary
to use this mold to make the pies, but it is fun to use!

  Place the closed mold on the pie crust.
Cut two for each pie. One will become the 
pie top and one will become the pie bottom.
Set your mold up like this. I put 2 teaspoons of
 peaches and cream filling in each pie.
Edge each of the pie crust pieces with the beaten egg.
This will help the edges stay together.
Fold the two pie pieces together.
Pierce the pies in a few places, and sprinkle with the
2 teaspoons sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
Enjoy your pies!

Peachy Garden Fresh Salad w/ Champagne Vinaigrette

This weeks salad is a delicious garden salad made with romaine  lettuce and topped with peaches and champagne vinaigrette. Summer in a salad!
 Champagne Vinaigrette

1/4 cup Champagne Vinaigrette
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 tablespoon fresh Lime Juice
1 fresh Lime Zest, finely grated 
Salt & Pepper
We want to make the vinaigrette first. It needs to refrigerate 
for at least 1/2 hour before serving. With vinaigrette, there is never
too much refrigeration! So, pour the champagne vinegar in a bowl.
Add the dijon mustard, and whisk.
Add the vegetable oil and olive oil.
Zest the lime into a small bowl, then put into the bowl
with the oils, and whisk.
Squeeze the lime juice into the bowl, and whisk.
Add salt and pepper. and refrigerate. If there is not enough
champagne taste to satisfy you, add up to another 1/4 cup
of champagne vinaigrette.
 Put together your salad, by chopping the romaine,
add a couple grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and chop 
up a peach. Serve with vinaigrette.
Enjoy!

Thanks for joining me today!

Tomorrow we will be making a
Strawberry Trifle!

Hope to see you then!
