– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2/3 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
– 6-8 tablespoons ice water
– 4 ripe peaches, peeled and diced
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 2 tablespoons cornstarch
– 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
– Granulated sugar, for sprinkling


**1. Prepare the Dough:**
– In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add the chilled butter cubes.
– Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
– Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
– Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

**2. Make the Peach Filling:**
– In a medium bowl, combine the diced peaches, granulated sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and cornstarch. Toss until the peaches are evenly coated. Set aside.

**3. Assemble the Hand Pies:**
– Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
– On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/8 inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or a small bowl as a guide, cut out circles of dough.
– Place a spoonful of the peach filling onto one half of each dough circle, leaving a small border around the edges.
– Fold the other half of the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges together to seal, then use a fork to crimp the edges.
– Place the assembled hand pies onto the prepared baking sheet.

**4. Bake and Serve:**
– Brush the tops of the hand pies with the beaten egg, then sprinkle with granulated sugar for a golden finish.
– Using a sharp knife, make a small slit on the top of each hand pie to allow steam to escape.
– Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the hand pies are golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
– Allow the hand pies to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature.
