|Painting egg wash on pastry to give it shine|
The Basic Peach Filling is naturally sweetened with honey making it a very healthy option to fill pastries. The combination of honey and cinnamon is absolutely divine; I couldn't stop sniffing this mixture as I was mixing it together.

Peach Melba Mini Galette - Roll out ¼ of the Vegan Pie Crust dough into an approximate circle about ⅛ inch thick. Place fresh raspberries in a ring 1 inch from the edge of the pie crust dough. Fill middle with Basic Peach Filling and fold dough over to create pleats.
|Peach Basil Hand Pies|
Peach Basil Hand Pies - Chiffonade three basil leaves and mix into Basic Peach Filling. Roll out ½ of the Vegan Pie Crust dough until about ⅛ inch thick. Using a cookie cutter in the shape of your choice, cut an even number of shapes. Place a dollop of Peach Basil filling onto half of the dough shapes. Make steam vents on the other half of the shapes by either cutting a few slits with a knife or cutting another shape (such as a heart) in the centre. Place one steam-vented shape on top of filling and seal edges firmly by pressing down with fingers.
Ready to bake?
Place assembled pastries onto a prepared baking tray and chill in fridge for at least 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Whisk one egg and a splash of milk together until smooth and brush a thin layer over pastry. Bake pastries for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving. Use a pair of sharp kitchen shears to make clean cuts.
