55 minutes


8 servings



  • 2 peaches, ripe, pitted and pealed
  • 1 cup Rodelle Vanilla Sugar
  • 1 oz lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 2 Rodelle Vanilla Beans, split and scraped
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • 2.5 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp Rodelle Vanilla Sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 oz unsalted butter
  • 2 Rodelle Vanilla Beans, split and scraped
  • 1 oz lemon juice, fresh squeezed
    3 oz milk
  • Flour, as needed


  • 1 quart vegetable oil
  • 1-2 cups Rodelle Vanilla Sugar



  • In a large saucepan, cook the peaches at a medium heat with the Rodelle Vanilla Sugar, lemon juice, Rodelle Vanilla Beans and salt for 5 minutes; you want the peaches to soften and release their juices.
  • Reduce to a lower heat all the liquid for about 5-10 more minutes until you get a thick syrupy fruit mixture.


  • In a food processor, combine the flour, Rodelle Vanilla Sugar, salt and butter then pulse in short bursts until the mixture is coarse and blended; add the Rodelle Vanilla Beans, split and scraped, lemon juice and milk, then pulse until the dough starts to come together, add if needed 1 or 2 oz of milk.
  • When the dough is ready, place onto a clean and lightly floured surface and with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough to about 1/8˝; cut into 5 ˝ diameter circles.
  • Then wrap them individually in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.

To assemble and Fry the Pies

  • Place the dough circles on a flat surface and brush the perimeter of each with water.
  • Spoon about 2 to 3 tbsp of fruit mixture on the center of each dough circle and leave a 1˝ space clear from the edges.
  • Fold the dough in half to form a half-moon shape and pinch the edges together to seal, then let the pies rest for about 15 minutes.
  • In a large sauté pan, heat the vegetable oil at approximately 350 degrees Fahrenheit, using tongs slowly place each pie in the sauté pan, when golden brown on one side (about 2 minutes) flip them over and brown the other side.
  • Next to the sauté pan prepare a plate with paper towels in order to soak the excess of oil from the fried pies.
  • You may dust some Rodelle Vanilla Sugar on top of the finished pies.
