  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ice cold water
  • 3/4 cups cold unsalted butter cut into pieces (12 tablespoons)


  • 4 peaches peeled and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon


  • Add the flour, sugar and salt to a food processor and pulse just until combined. In a small bowl, whisk mix together the egg, vinegar and water. Add the cold butter pieces into the food processor and pulse until small coarse crumbs remain. Sprinkle the water/egg mixture over the flour and pulse again until the dough comes together.
  • Remove the dough with your hands and wrap it in plastic wrap. Stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • While the crust is in the fridge, heat the peaches, sugar, bourbon, salt and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, until the peaches are softened and syrupy, about 10 minutes. Let the mixture cool completely.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill a small bowl with water.
  • Roll out the dough until it's about 1/4 inch in thickness. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter (or something else round, like a jar) to cut rounds out of the dough. Make sure to cut an equal amount since you will press them together!
  • Place the rounds on the baking sheet. Fill every other round with a tablespoon of the peach mixture. Dip a finger in the water and run it along the outside of the dough round that has the peach mixture. Place an empty round on top of the peach filled round. Press the outsides down with a fork to seal the rounds together. Repeat with the remaining rounds.
  • Beat the egg and water together. Brush it on top of all the pies and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cut and "x" in the top with a paring knife.
  • Bake the pies for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and let cool slightly. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
