Recipe: Mini peach pies with bourbon cream

By: Eryn Chesney

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups + 1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 4 cups sliced peaches
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • Coarse sugar for sprinkling

Bourbon cream
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped out
  • 1 tbsp bourbon

1 In a food processor, pulse the butter, 2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt until coarsely crumbled. Add 1/4 cup of ice cold water while pulsing for 5 seconds. Scrape the mixture onto a lightly floured board and knead to form a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2 Roll out the pastry into a 1/4" thick sheet. Cut out six 6" circles. With a paring knife, make 1/2" diagonal cuts around the edges of the circles.

3 In a bowl, combine 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1-1/2 tablespoons flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, the peaches, lemon juice and rosemary. Divide the filling evenly among the pastry rounds. Working with two adjacent cut sections at a time, pull one into the centre and the other across it; repeat with the remaining strips to form a crown shape around the filling. Press the outer edge of the circle down to seal in the juices during baking.

4 Brush the pastry with the egg and sprinkle generously with the coarse sugar. Bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

5 Meanwhile, whisk together the whipping cream, brown sugar, vanilla bean seeds and bourbon until lightly thickened but not fully whipped; serve with the warm pies.

Makes 6 mini pies.

Tip: Serve a small bowl or jar of bourbon cream with each mini pie. The fun presentation allows everyone to choose how much topping they use.
