Skillet Peach Pies

Summer brings that most fabulous flavors. Fresh summer peaches are just one of my weaknesses. Then pair that with my love of pie crust, well I’ve got to have it all. So I made these individual skillet peach pies for Mark and I. Whoohoo! That’s all I can say….so very, very delicious.

Ingredients: Pie and filling

  • 9″inch double pie crust
  • 1 pound fresh peach slices
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cinnamon
  • 3/4 pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 ground ginger
  • 1 TB cornstarch
  • DSC_1453 (2)1 egg, whisked

Ingredients: Praline topping

  • 4 TB salted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 TB corn syrup
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

In a large bowl combine the peach slices, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, ginger and cornstarch. Set aside at room temperature for at least 20 minutes so that the juices accumulate.

In a small bowl mix the praline topping ingredients with a wooden spoon until evenly combined.

DSC_1456Preheat your oven to 375. If using two 6″ to 7″-inch cast iron skillets place one 9″-inch pie crust in each skillet. If using a single 10″ to 12″-inch cast iron skillet, roll the double crust amount of dough into one large pie crust and place in the skillet. No matter what size skillet you are using the pie crust dough should overhang the skillet by inches. Place a heaping amount of the peach mixture into each skillet. Now place the praline topping on the top of the peach pile and fold the pie crust up over the filling. There will and should be an opening where the crust doesn’t meet in the center.

DSC_1460 (2)Now brush the whisked egg over the pie crust. Place skillets on a baking sheet lined with foil. You’ll need this because juices will boil out of the pies. Bake for about 45 minutes until beautifully golden brown. Let the pies or pie cool for at least 2 hours before eating.
