2. With that ready, get out a mixing bowl and combine your brown sugar, flour, salt, rolled oats, cinnamon and butter. Use a fork to work all the ingredients together, making a shaggy and crumbly dough.
3. After that’s done, prepare your peaches by cutting them in half and taking the pits out. Next, put your peaches cut-side down use a sharp knife to cut the top of the peach into thin strips without cutting all the way through.
4. Next, take out your puff pastry and cut it into six equal squares. Move all of those onto your baking sheet and put the peaches you prepared in the middle of each one. Finally, scoop some of your crumbled dough mixture you made on top of each one of the mini-pie squares as well.
5. Let everything bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Take it out when the time is up and make sure everything looks caramelized and delicious. Enjoy!
