Peach Hat Pies ~ Tea Party Tuesday

Hi Tea Friends!

Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend.
I am continuing my "work"
through the most recent issue of
Tea Time Magazine!


I am most excited to share with you these
lovely, whimsical and EASY

Summer Peach Hat Pies!


Unlike the divine but fussy Strawberry Chiffon from last week, 
these mini pies where a BREEZE to make and 
tasted so wonderful!

For a printable recipe click HERE!

There is also a link on my recipes page.

SUMMER HAT PEACH PIES (4 individual pies)

4 canned peach halves, drained and patted dry
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 T butter cut into 4 equal pats
1 (14.1 oz) package refrigerated piecrusts (2 sheets)
1 large egg
1 tsp water
4 small edible flowers to garnish

Preheat oven to 425

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Fill each peach cavity with1/2 tsp brown sugar, ¼ tsp cinnamon, and 1 butter pat. 
Press firmly to pack filling. Set aside. 

On a lightly floured surface, unroll pie dough sheets.

Using a 4 ½ inch round cutter, cut 8 circles from pie dough, reserving scraps.

Using rolling pin, roll 4 circles into 5 inch rounds. Set aside.

 Place remaining 4 circles on prepared baking sheet.
Carefully invert a peach half (so that filling does not fall out) on the center of each circle on baking sheets.

Using fingers lightly moisten edges of circles with water. Top each with 5 inch circle.

Press pie dough lightly to mold to the peach, and them press edges of pie dough together.

Using a chopstick, press dough together to create texture for the brim of the hat.

With a sharp paring knife, cut vertical and then horizontal slits across the rounded surface of the hat.

(This vents for steam to escape as the pie cooks as well as provides texture to look like a hat)

Using dough scraps, cut long strips to form band for the base of the brim of each hat

Trim excess dough where ends of band overlap

In small bowl, combine egg and water, beating well. Brush egg wash over surface of each hat

Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.

Remove to wire racks to cool
Garnish with edible flower where pie dough overlaps.

So sweet they are.......

It's a winner Mom! 

Do you see the little teacup in the photos above? 

This little teacup is a recently caught my eye as I thought the delicate blue roses were so unique and I LOVE the pedestal!

But my favorite part of this cup is the handle....

I appreciate this handle for many reasons.
For one, it made me think of the phrase...

"Square peg, round hole"

Ya....I can relate little cup!!

I hope you try to make these easy little pies and if you do, 
let me know how you liked them! 

I plan to make these for a large tea I am hosting the end of August. 

I will be sharing tea and peach hat pies with:
