Rosemary Peach Hand Pies

150

All pies are good pies, as are all peaches. These rosemary peach hand pies are proof of that.

Peach season never seems long enough. And there never seem to be enough peaches. I would likely do terribly naughty things in the zeal for more peaches. But I digress. I love peaches in any form, whereas, the Nash does not. So I have to find ways to merge my love for peaches, and his love for being a fat kid at heart. And thus the rosemary peach hand pies.

There’s something special about hand pies. They can be as simple or complex as you want. And the bit of juice that trickles out and crisps the edges just makes them all the better, in my opinion. The beauty about peaches, or one of the beauties I should say, is that they pair well with a number of flavors. Flavors include, rosemary, basil, cardamom, ginger, and almonds. But the list continues. So you can just pick a flavor profile and run from there.

I do make my own crust for many desserts, including freezing pie crusts for later. However, for this recipe, I opted for the easy way out and used Trader Joe’s frozen pie crusts, so it’s up to you how you’d like to play that one out. The rosemary in these pies brings a lovely savory herbal nature to the sweet and floral peaches. The pie crust infuses in the chewy buttery goodness of the dough, and together it’s just a mouth party. And who doesn’t like a mouth party?!

I doubled down with flavor profiles when I served these suckers by pairing them with fresh ginger tea and providing a bit of fresh ginger whipped cream.
