Plum and Peach Hand Pies!

If you are an Indian then you know them as Gujiyas. Only these Gujiyas are filled with fruit and baked not fried.The best way to make these Hand Pies is to make the dough from scratch.For the dough:

  1. All purpose flour: 1 1/2 cups
  2. Cold butter cubed: 1/2 cup
  3. Cold water with ice cubes: 1 cup
  4. Vinegar: 1 tbsp

Take the flour and butter and blend them in a mixer. Leave some lumps of butter in there. They will melt and give it a flaky texture. Add in water two tbsp a time and use only the tips of your fingers to get the dough together. Once it starts taking shape add in vinegar. It will make it extra flaky.Don’t overdo the doughJust fold it into a ball and wrap it up in a cling film. Keep it in the fridge overnight. That is the best way to make these pies. Make the dough a night before and you will have less work to do the next day.For the filling:Take one cup of Plum and cut them into tiny pieces. Take a non stick pan and add in one cup of sugar to the plums and keep stirring till they leave their juices. Take two big peaches and cut them into thin slices. We will bake them inside the pie. Once the juices have dried
