  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease the bottom of a shallow baking pan.
  2. Unroll the prepared pie crust onto a lightly floured surface, and cut into 1/2 inch wide strips. Place peach stem side down, and wrap strips of dough--over-lapping rows--around the fruit so it's completely covered. For ease, twirl the peach while holding the pastry in place and overlap rows. When completely wrapped, the peach will resemble a beehive. Make sure the entire peach is covered and sealed inside the crust. Repeat with remaining peaches. Arrange the wrapped peaches in a shallow baking pan.
  3. Bake peaches in preheated oven until crust turns golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cream butter with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla extract, allspice, salt, and heavy cream until well blended. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar.
  5. To serve, place baked peaches in serving bowls. Slice each peach in half and remove the pits. Spoon hard sauce over the peach halves.

This was surprisingly easy, even though I was a bit leary. I'm not very good at cutting pie crust into even slices, but it doesn't really matter. LOL! I was a bit skeptical about leaving the ...

These were pretty good. My husband loved them and the kiddies thought they were really cool. I used homemade pie crust. The peaches were a little hard to wrap but it does make it easier as st...

Wow. These are harder than they look - Pomplemousse makes it look easy. Very cute idea - and tasty too! I used biggish peaches, so only got 2 per crust (ate a whole one, too!). I followed Pomp's...

I am not a fan of baked fruit ususally, but my guests loved these! They are very easy other than the wrapping could be a bit time consuming. I made a homemade pie crust which was probably a lot ...

Really, really good. I'm so glad I got to this recipe before the end of peach season. I adored the hard sauce, as did my husband who normally doesn't like sweets. I did a few things different...

This is the recipe that introduced me to Allrecipes. I absolutely love and can't bake the traditional peach pie anymore. So easy that young children can actually bake their own peach pies. I ...

VERY GOOD! I used "Basic Flaky Pie Crust" for my dough strips and it worked very well. I added yellow food coloring to make the sauce look like honey. Thank you Linda B for sharing.

After reading the other reviews, I think I had higher expectations for this, but my guests and I found this to be only so-so. The hard sauce is very good, but everyone said they would just rath...
