Peach & Pecan Hand Pies

Peach & Pecan Hand Pies

Nothing embodies summer in Georgia more than peach pie, and these adorably rustic, miniature versions are sure to be a new favorite! Plus, they're the perfect dessert for a grill out. Sauté juicy peaches with cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar & pecans 'til thick and syrupy. Roll out the easy-to-handle dough (a wine bottle will do if you don't own a rolling pin!), load up with your peach filling, and crimp the edges with a fork for an effortless finish. Top with a dusting of sparkly sanding sugar then bake to flaky perfection.
