Peach and Lemon Balm Hand Pies
My neighbors peach trees have started dropping fruit and they have so kindly given me a few. My lemon balm is also thriving so this is a local match made in heaven.
2 medium peaches
1 tbs of fresh lemon balm(feel free to substitute anything in the mint family)
1/4 cup of white sugar
One pie crust(I used frozen but whatever you favorite crust recipe)
1) Cut up the peaches into very small pieces and add to a medium bowl with the cut-up lemon balm. Add the sugar and let sweat on the counter for 30 minutes.
2.) Roll out your pie crust pretty thin (1/8 of an inch) and cut out cour circles. Mine were about 3in across
3) Spoon on a heap of the filing cover and cover with the other circle.
4.) Crimp closed with a fork and close poke two holes using the other side of the fork.
5) Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes and enjoy!
Makes about four pies
