Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pie dough, thawed
  • 1 Pound fresh peaches, peeled and chopped (or frozen)
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Tablespoon orange juice

Directions

Earlier in the day, melt the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Toss in the chopped peaches and cook until peaches release their juices. Add the flour, cinnamon, and orange juice and cook until thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Let cool.

Unroll the pie dough. Cut into 4- or 5-inch diameter circles. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the peach filling in each. Lightly moisten the edges of dough with water. Fold the pie dough over to create a half-moon shape. Gently press the pie edges together and crimp closed with a fork.

Preheat grill to medium high heat, about 400 degrees. Spray grill grates generously with cooking spray. Transfer the pies to the grill and cook over direct heat, uncovered, for about 3 minutes per side, or until the dough turns a crispy, golden brown.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
