Test Kitchen Tip
Purchased pie crust makes these pies so easy to make, but if you have a favorite pie crust recipe, use it.
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine peaches, 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar, cornstarch, zest, lemon juice, ginger, and salt.
Unroll crust on a lightly floured surface, then cut four circles with a 4½-inch cutter. Arrange two dough circles on prepared baking sheet. Roll remaining dough circles to about 5¼ inches in diameter.
Using a slotted spoon, place ⅓ cup filling on the centers of dough circles on baking sheet. Brush egg around edges, then top with larger dough circles and press edges together to tightly seal. Crimp edges with a fork. Brush tops of pies with remaining egg and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Cut two to three slits in tops.
