Helpful Tips for the Best results

Make the crust recipe ahead of time.

If you have time, make the diabetic friendly pie crust recipe that we use in our Sugar Free Peach Hand Pies a day ahead. You can chill it in the fridge overnight and when you are ready to make your hand pies, just remove it from the fridge and leave it at room temperature while you work on the filling.

Using Frozen Peaches

You can use frozen peaches in this recipe, BUT.. the peaches need to be well drained to prevent the hand pies from being too juicy.

A good way to drain frozen peaches is to just put them in a sieve over a bowl and allow the liquid to drain out. Move around the peaches every few minutes to get as much of the juice removed as possible. If desired, save the juice and make some sugar free peach glaze and brush it over the tops of the finished pies.

Substituting Sweetener

As I always mention that I use Splenda granulated sweetener as it does not have a negative impact on my blood sugar levels. Many sweeteners contain sugar alcohols which cause my blood sugar to rise as if I had real sugar. If this is not a concern of yours feel free to substitute it with your favourite sweetener. Be mindful that any substitutions may change the nutritional values.

How to easily peel peaches.

This easy way to peel peaches makes the hard work of peeling peaches super easy. Just follow these simple steps. Peaches should be ripe for the best results.

  • In a medium-sized saucepan bring water to a boil. (have enough water in the pan to cover the peaches)
  • Place peaches into the boiling water. Do not pile them on top of each other. (you may have to do them a few at a time) Using a slotted spoon works best for placing the peaches into the boiling water.
  • Let the peaches sit in the boiling water for approximately 30 seconds.
  • Remove them from the boiling water, using a slotted spoon.
  • Immediately submerge the peaches into an ice bath (bowl of ice water)
  • After 5 to 10 seconds remove one peach at a time. The skin should easily slide off of the peach

Filling the hand pies

When you are filling the hand pies, it is important to leave 1/4 of an inch of clean pie crust dough around the edge, When you attach the top of the pie, the clean edge will make a good seam without leakage.

Make sure you don’t forget the steam hole at the top of the pie. The steam hole will prevent the sides from pushing open and liquid seeping out.

If you do not have a hand pie press, you can use a round cookie cutter and seal the edges with your fingers by pinching the edges all the way around the pie or you can press the edges with a fork.

Storing and freezing recommendations

Store your Sugar Free Peach Hand Pies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 or 6 days. Our hand pies can also be frozen. Wrap them in plastic wrap to make them airtight. Store wrapped hand pies in a Ziploc bag or airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.
