The Creative Princess: Mini Peach Pies - Perfect for Back to School

Mini Peach Pies - Perfect for Back to School

#Cbias,#SmartSnack,Back to School
 If you did not know, we are quickly closing in on the BIG day!

What big day is that?

The first day of school!

We start next week and I have been trying to think of the perfect "gift" for Mads teacher, as well as the perfect treat for her to enjoy after school.

Yesterday we went to Walmart to pick up a few last minute school supplies, because in the last 50 trips I have made to get her supplies I have managed to forget a few things.  Off we went to get everything I forgot and pick up a few snack options.

We came across these Del Monte Fruit Cups and I had to grab a few.  I knew they would make the PERFECT after school #SmartSnack for Mads, a great side to a healthy lunch for MG, and I also had a special treat in mind for Mads and her teacher.

After searching the section over I decided to get Peaches, Pears and Peaches that had been flavored with brown sugar and cinnamon. Once I saw the Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make.....

Mini Peach Pies!

I knew the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Peaches would be PERFECT for this!  They already had the flavor I was looking for and I would not need to add any other spices or sugar to them.

You will need, a Fruit Cup, Pie Crust, Butter and a bit of Flour.

Lay your crust out and cut to desired shape/size. You will then add one small pat of butter to center of bottom crust.

Place a small spoonful of filling in middle of crust.

 Next you just seal up the sides, and add a stick, if you would like, and bake! Super easy!

Mini Peach Pies
*1 Fruit Cup makes 4 small pies
Ingredients
1 Del Monte Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Peaches Fruit Cup {drained}
1 Package Refrigerated Pie Crust {you can also make your own, of course, but I was in a rush}
1/2 Tsp Flour
1-2 Tsp Butter
Egg Wash

Directions
Preheat oven to 375
Drain fruit cup and add flour to fruit, mix well.  Set aside.
Using a Mini Pie Maker or Cookie Cutter, cut pie crust to desired shape/size.
Lay bottom piece on cookie sheet and place a small pat of butter in the middle of the crust.
Next, add a small spoon full of Peaches and add another small pat of butter on top of the peaches.
Using your egg wash, gently brush wash on edge of bottom crust.
Place top crust over mixture and gently press down, I like to use a fork to do this.
Place on greased (or parchment covered) cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on sheet for 5 minutes, move to cooling rack to cool completely.
*If you would like to make your mini pies into Pie Pops, just place your pop stick between layers and press to seal, continue with directions.
