Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

This recipe was so fun. Instead of using regular pie dough, I used egg roll wrappers for the dough. So easy and a lighter alternative to pie dough. I'm always on the hunt for something sweet that I can send in IT Guy's lunch. These little hand held pies worked out great for both of us. I was able to send him off with a couple of these in his lunch and he had something other than a cookie or brownie. I guess they must have been pretty tasty to other family members because the 15 that I made only lasted for a day. I think next time I'll try berry or apple!

Hand Held Peach Pies 
with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Dip

3 cups peaches, diced (1 29-ounce can, drained)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg - beaten
Egg roll wrappers
Cinnamon/Sugar for sprinkling

Combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

Sprinkle over peaches and allow to sit for about 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Place a scoop of peach mixture in the middle of a won-ton wrapper. Brush edges with egg and fold “envelope style” to secure the filling. Press edges down well to seal in the filling.

Place seam side down and fry until won-ton wrapper is lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Place in a warm oven until all pies are cooked. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.

Serve with cinnamon cream cheese dip.

The ingredients for the pies.

Mix the flour, cinnamon and sugar.

Sprinkle over the diced peaches and let it set for a while.

On one egg roll wrapper, place a scoop of the peach mixture then "paint" the edges of the wrapper with the beaten egg.

Start folding the pie, making sure to seal the edges. Fold up one corner to the middle, over the filling.

Bring in the sides...seal them down.

Then bring the top corner down and press to seal.

Fry in vegetable oil over medium heat. Cook on one side until lightly browned then flip them over. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar.
