Raspberries and peaches join forces in these tiny hand pies for a true summer delight.
If you are making homemade dough, prepare the pie dough. Then gather it into two equal sized discs and allow it to chill for two hours in the fridge wrapped in plastic wrap.
After the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place raspberries in a medium bowl and set aside. To easily peel the peaches, bring a small pot of water to a boil. Gently place the whole peaches in the boiling water for 30 seconds or so and then remove them from the water with a slotted spoon. Place the peaches into a dish of cold water or run under cold water until the peaches are no longer warm. Halve the peaches to remove the pit, then slice into 1/2″ pieces and add them into the bowl of raspberries. Add sugar, almond extract, and tapioca and mix well. The raspberries will begin to break down and release their juices almost immediately. Set the bowl aside.
Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Dust a clean surface with flour and roll out one disc of your pie dough until it is about 1/8″ thick. Be generous with the flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the counter. Using a large biscuit cutter or other circular cutter about 3″ in diameter, cut out an even number of circles, using as much of the dough as possible. Remove scraps from around circles and press them back together in a ball and return it to the fridge.
For half of the circles, carefully spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling onto the center of each circle. Take the remaining circles and stretch them out slightly so they will completely cover the circles with the filling. Drape this stretched circle over the filling and press the edges down all the way around the circle. If your cutter has a sealing edge, press down firmly to ensure a seal is made. If not, press the tines of a fork around the edge of the circle to ensure the dough seals shut. Repeat until all pies have been sealed and place pies on the cookie sheet about 1/2″ apart. Use the tip of a knife to make a small slit in the top of each pie to allow for venting. Place the cookie sheet in the fridge while you build the rest of the pies.
Roll out the second disc of dough and repeat the pie-building process. Continue to recombine your scraps and re-roll them to maximize the number of pies you can complete.
Once all of the pies are ready and on the cookie sheets, combine the egg yolk and water in a small bowl and beat until mixture is slightly foamy. Brush over the top of each pie. Finally, sprinkle sanding sugar over all of the pies. The sugar won’t melt during baking, so use as much or as little as you like.
Bake pies at 375°F for 25-35 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Pies without a strong seal may leak slightly. Remove pies to a cooling rack and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
Pies can be served warm or cool. Serve them by themselves, with vanilla ice cream, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, or whatever makes you happiest. Pies can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
These raw brownies whip up so quickly and easily with few ingredients and they taste beyond incredible. But the best part is, they are healthy and my kids love them. These brownies are also vegan, gluten free, high protein and low-carb. And did I mention how healthy and easy these are to make?
Fudgey Wudgey Chocolate Sauce is wonderful! It’s not difficult to make and it’s so much better than anything you squeeze out of a plastic bottle. It will satisfy the strongest chocolate craving and the recipe is large enough that you’ll have plenty to keep in the refrigerator for seconds and thirds (and possibly fourths).
What is more sinful that chocolate? When it comes in the form of a gooey brownie over rich Oreos and topped with vanilla ice cream, I would say nothing in the food world can be more sinful. This dessert is perfect for camping trips or back yard parties. The texture of the brownie is devilishly gooey and full of fudge goodness. S’mores? Who needs them when you have Original Sin!
