Perky Peach Pocket Pies

Author Notes

First of all let me say that baking is not my favorite sport, but every now and then I can be inspired and this time the inspiration was the new and unused pocket pie molds. Now I’m not the best at making any kind of crust so I just used the recipe in the back of the pie mold box. I can do this! So I see several more petite pies in the future. The filling is nothing unusual and perhaps not as special as the pros make, but this version makes me happy.
Sandhill, NC beautiful peaches are such a treat and need very little sugar so start with ¼ cup and go from there.
I can see me making a cobbler or pie for our guest this weekend, Irene.

  • Makes 8-10
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh peaches, peeled and (a half pound short cuz I ate the other 1/2)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4-1/2 cups sugar
  • pinch of powdered ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, taste and add more if you like
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Bellini mix
In This Recipe
  1. Sift all dry ingredients add the peaches and liquids. Make the dough (Williams Sonoma Pocket Pie Dough). I am sure that there are other pocket pie methods our there somewhere, but for me the anti-baker, I needed the WS instructions. Rolling, cutting, shaping the dough was easy and the filling was fabulous. Sorry that this is not such an original idea, but for me a great pastry accomplishment.
