We love heading to our local pick-your-own farms to pick some fresh peaches every summer. Besides just enjoying the fresh peaches as is, I love to bake with them. These Peach Hand Pies are super simple and full of flavor. 

We love hand pies because they’re a little portable snack almost. A little piece of heaven you can hold right in your hand! You need to definitely try my apple hand pies and pop tart recipe if you love hand pies. 

Who doesn’t love a grab and go dessert? This recipe is easy as pie!

I am always making delicious recipes with our fresh peaches, including these Peach Hand Pies. Peaches are so delicious, so there is no need for a filling that is overly sweet, that’s why I love this recipe.

I don’t have fresh peaches. What else can I use? 

Sadly, fresh peaches aren’t a year round thing. But, you can use either a 21oz can of peach pie filling or 8 oz frozen peaches (thawed and drained).

Can I Freeze My Peach Hand Pies? 

Yes!!! Just allow them to cool completely before freezing. Freeze flat in a freezer safe, air tight bag.

Do you grease the baking sheet??

Answering my own question, since I was minutes from putting them in the oven when I posted: I did NOT grease the baking sheet & they came out just fine. The fat in the dough is enough to keep them from sticking!
