Tasty Tuesday ~ Personal Peach Pies

If you need a unique, inexpensive, and quick dessert for Easter or any spring/summer event, this little recipe might just be your answer.  When Jo and Jeff first tasted these, they said, "Oh, wow! Yum. That's soooo good."  It was a winner!  I hope you'll enjoy them. :) This would be a great recipe for kids to help assemble.

These personal peach pies only require 6 ingredients, including the pie shells, and they prep fast and would even work to assemble ahead of time. They make a pretty presentation and make your house smell heavenly!

Personal Peach Pies

Start with 8 mini pie shells. (I think you could also use puff pastry cups, but you'll have to tell me how that goes.) I used store bought mini shells to save time; they cost me about $2.50.

3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. white sugar

  • Cut in 1/4 c. soft (NOT melted) butter until it looks crumbly. (Use a pastry cutter or 2 knives.)
  • Put about 1 T of the crumb mixture into each pie shell. 

  • Drain a 29 oz. can of sliced peaces.
  • Fill each pie with peach slices, evenly distributed to all 8 pies.

  • Carefully mound the remaining crumb mixture on the top of the pies.  You may have to press a little, but get it all on there. It's worth it!

  • Bake them at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, until little bubbles are talking to you from under the amazing, lightly golden brown crumb top. 

Let the pies cool for about 30 min (while you're having supper) and then serve them with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

These are peachy sweet and buttery rich, so it's really perfect that they are personally sized to keep you from eating too much. Then again, maybe they're just easier to pick up and run away to eat a 2nd helping all by yourself. YUM!

I always keep cans of peaches in my pantry for my peach cobbler.  Now, I can use them for something else that sound even more delicious!  Thank you Julie.
