Ingredients

  • 3 Cups chopped summer fruit, such as peeled and pitted peaches or nectarines, strawberries, or pitted cherries
  • 5 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 Cup crushed vanilla wafers or ginger snaps
  • 2 rolled out 9-inch crusts

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until about 1/8-inches thick. Cut the dough into 12 (5-inch) circles, rerolling the dough as needed. In a medium bowl, toss together the fruit, sugar, and flour. (Do this just before filling the pies; if done too far in advance, the mixture can become too juicy. Use less or more sugar, as desired, depending on the fruit's natural sweetness.)

Working 1 at a time, spoon some filling into the center of a circle of dough; brush the edges with water. Fold over into a half-moon and crimp the edges to seal. Brush the top with heavy cream, sprinkle with the cookie crumbs and bake on a large, parchment-paper-lined baking sheet until golden brown, or about 35 minutes.

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
