Dinner around our place is usually pretty standard. I love using my slow cooker, so Mississippi Roast or Bourbon Chicken tend to be on the menu regularly.
I’m often scrambling when my kids ask for dessert. Odd, right? You would think our house would have trays of cookies and cakes and fudge just laying around.
But reality is, I usually only bake once a week. And it’s often around events, so that treats aren’t sitting around for me to eat. Especially during the school year when I’m home alone with dessert on the counter, begging to be eaten.
But in the summer, I find that with all the kids in and out during the day, the extra cookies and candies get eaten by others.
So at dessert time, there is nothing but ice cream in the freezer. And sometimes a loaf of my favorite apple bread or zucchini bread!

Last year I made a homemade Apple Hand Pie recipe, and it’s quickly become one of my most popular recipes on the blog! The mouthwatering apple pie filling is incredible!
Today’s recipe for peach pie uses a simple can of pie filling with an addition of cinnamon to give it a little more depth in flavor. It was perfect.
If you have a homemade peach pie filling, feel free to use that too! I took a knife and fork and diced up the canned peaches in the filling so they fit nicely in the center of the hand pies!

Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Remove pie crusts from package and allow to come to room temperature while you prepare filling. You can also use homemade pie crust too.
Step 2: Dump canned pie filling in a shallow bowl and dice peaches using a fork and knife (you want them to be small pieces). Add in cinnamon and mix until blended. Set aside.
Step 3: Unroll pie crusts and cut 6 circles from each crust using a 4-inch biscuit cutter. You may have to re-roll the scraps to get the 6th circle. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, drop peach pie filling into center of each pie crust circle.
Brush Edges of pie crust circles with drops of water. (this helps them seal better) Fold in half and pinch edges completely. Fold pinched edges over and press with the tines of a fork to seal. Poke hand pie with fork once, to prevent bursting.
Step 4: Beat egg white in a small bowl until frothy. Brush over the tops of each hand pie. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (1 inch apart) for about 15 minutes, until browned.
Step 5: While pies are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Remove cooked pies from baking sheet and drop (while warm) into glaze, coating it completely. I use two forks to flip it in the glaze and remove carefully. Return to parchment paper and allow to set (about 5 minutes). ENJOY!

Yes. I freeze hand pies all the time. For best results, allow to cool completely. You can freeze with or without the glaze. Place on parchment paper in single layer in a freezer safe container or ziploc freezer bag. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and enjoy.
Sure! If you have a favorite peach pie filling recipe that uses fresh peaches, that sounds like a wonderful alternative.
To prevent this, brush the edges of each circle with egg whites before pinching closed. Make sure to fold over and poke a fork in each pie before baking as well.

This recipe fuckign sucks, canned filling, refrigerator pie crust?? LOLOL WHERE IS THE ACTUAL RECIPE?! 😂🤣
You can start your own food blog if you prefer, k, thanks.
I love this recipe! When I need a quick dessert, I use use this. I’ve made canned peach, apple, blueberry, pumpkin pie filling and cherry(all canned and fabulous!!) hand pies. I can make a different flavor for each of my guests! I make homemade standard pies on holidays but last year I was worn out so I made these my Christmas guests loved these because they were the perfect size! Thanks
Aww c’mon try to be nice. I think this is an awesome recipe.
Some people are just learning to cook and this recipe gives them confidence (my teenager GREAT grands, for one). Also, some seniors need short cuts and appreciate them. So go suck a lemon powdered in alum. In other words, bug off!!
When you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself
Watch your. Language, my granddaughter saw this. Why don’t you post your own version.. This was perfect for my granddaughter. Why does this make you so angry?
Wow, Was this comment really necessary? Grace costs nothing.
Wow, rude much? Since this recipe is so far beneath you, perhaps you should start your own blog.
Where are your manners????
These turned out delicious!! I used a recipe for pie filling from fresh peaches for the filling and they were delicious!! They were easy to make and the icing was perfect! Thank you!!
How do I make the frosting hard. When I make it it’s to sticky
Use a cookie icing recipe that has some corn syrup in it. I use a recipe on Sally’s baking addiction for my cookies and it hardens and is not sticky. I will try it with this recipe but I’m going to make my own filling. I have fresh peaches that are sweet and delicious
I have frozen peaches that I would like to use. Should I make some kind of syrup or cook the peaches first. I just don’t want them dry. Thank you.
This is not a recipe – it’s a kit. Very disappointed.
Hi Aimee, wondering if I can use dried apricots for my filling? Do you have a recipe that you can share with me? Please, thank you!
I haven’t tried it with dried apricots.
I just made them today in honor of Pi day. I made them in 3 shapes (round, heart, & flower) and 2 flavors (apple & peach). They’re amazing! Thanks for the recipe!
