I took this to my family's Fourth of July Barbecue yesterday and it was definitely well received. My grandpa loves anything sweet and he really liked it and my brother-in-law said it got 5 stars because it tasted like peaches and 3 stars because it had nuts in it. :D I gave it 5 anyway. I didn't have an orange so I left out the orange peel, but I'm sure it would only be better with it. I also used butter flavor biscuits and they made a delicious topping. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for another great one!!! Made for PRMR.
