Mini Peach Pies

I'll start out saying I never intended to make mini pies... we bought 4 peaches from the farmer's market and once we requested them he sais $8!!! Seriously he had a truck full and $2 a peach, but we were already too far in to back out so we bought them, took them home, looked at them that night and now they were 1/2 rotted and weren't going to make it much longer. So I had to use them for something since they were so dang expensive- so I made pies :)

My friend Liz came over and helped out so that also made the overpriced rotting peaches hurt less :)

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup of butter; cold
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2-3/4 cup ice water
6 peaches; one per mini pie
1 tbs brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tbs heavy cream

1    in a large bowl mix flour, salt, 1 tsp sugar
2    cut in or grate in the butter
3    add 1/4 cup of ice water and mix
4    mix in the other 1/4 cup 1tbs at a time, add a little more if necessary- dough should hold together
5    shape dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, place in fridge for 1 hour
6   then diced up peaches
7   sprinkled in 1 tbs brown sugar
8   rolled out the dough to 1/8" thick
9   cut out 6 - 5 /12" circles
10   placed them in tart tins and pushed the dough up the sides
11   filled them with peaches
12   rolled out the dough again, and cut out small cirlces
13   placed them on top of the peaches and pinched it to the bottom dough
14 preheat oven to 425 degrees F, refrigerate for 15 minutes
15 brush the tops with egg yolk and 1 tbs heavy cream mixture
16 bake for 30 minutes, turn oven down to 375, bake another 25-30 minutes
     viola, Pie!
