Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll out the dough.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water.
Pour the peaches into the center of the dough making a mound and leaving a one inch border around the edge of the crust.
Fold the crust up over the edge of the peaches pinching to create pleats. Repeat the process until all the edges have been folded up over the peaches.
Brush the edges of the dough with the egg yolk using a pastry brush and sprinkle with the sugar.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
