Peach Hand Pies

Hi there!

It's been quiet over on my end, I know... but I've been busy!  I've gotten quite a bit accomplished this week and it feels so good.  We finally finished Jillian's bedroom and I'm so excited to share it with you... I just need to take some photos.

Another thing I've been busy with is the garden and yesterday we stopped at a local farm and I purchased some corn and peaches to put up for this winter.  

When I got home my Country Living magazine was waiting in the mailbox and inside was a recipe for strawberry hand pies.  They looked scrumptious.  After dinner and the girls were put to bed my husband mentioned he was hungry for some dessert... I was so excited... I had a reason to try this recipe!  When they were pulled warm out of the oven, I actually ate three.  Okay, really it was almost four. 

So I hope you don't mind me sharing another recipe with you!  But this one is a keeper.  I didn't have any strawberries, but I did have the peaches I had just bought so I substituted a peach filling for strawberries, but otherwise I followed this recipe to a tee.  

Tonight we had dinner at our house with all my family so I had an excuse to make more peach hand pies this afternoon.  

I substituted approximately the same weight in strawberries for peaches and substituted the strawberry jam for peach jam.  

I almost always have a helper that is begging to stir something.

Yep, this is me.  These days I'm usually cooking around at least one little girl and sometimes two.  (smile) 

 Like the recipe, I rolled my pie rounds into about a 6" circle. 

This was my prettiest pie.  I didn't worry about them looking perfect. 

Delicious!  Of course the girls and I couldn't wait until dinnertime to sample one.  (Yes, even though I had almost four the previous night.)  

I set aside a pie for Jillian while she ran upstairs to change and caught this little one trying to sneak a bite!  She's quick too.  

  I think they're called hand pies for a reason!  

We had them this evening with ice cream.  So good!

You can find the recipe here.  

Enjoy your week!  I'll be back sometime with some pictures of Jillian's new bedroom and starting to get busy working on the office upstairs.  It's finally coming together!
