Mini Peach-Almond Hand Pies

Hey y'all. Coming at ya with these Mini Peach-Almond Hand Pies made with Texas peaches. Truth be told, there are three kinds of nuts in these babies: almond, coconut, and pistachio—almond being the most prominent since it's used as the main ingredient in the crust. Coconut is used in the frosting and in the crust as well, and pistachio is sprinkled on top. These are gluten-free and almost (but not quite) vegan due to the egg-wash I used on top. I've been enjoying alternative baking quite a bit lately, along with the challenge of making pastries that taste delicious without the presence of animal fat or traditional flour—more satisfaction, less guilt. I almost forgot to mention that these are sweetened with maple syrup and coconut butter.
