This is a wonderful peach pie! I like mine without the raspberry sauce topping, as I do not care for raspberries. However, I have made the sauce for company and it has always gone over to great comments and recipe requests. From Pillsbury: Fresh peaches never tasted better! An old-fashioned favorite is even better with a lusciously easy berry sauce.

Very tasty! I added 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon (peach pie withOUT cinnamon??). I also had WAY too many peaches to fill the recommended 9" pie plate! I followed the directions to the "T"...6 cups sliced peaches. I think 4-5 would have been perfect. We don't do the sauce thing. In fact, we used an oatmeal crumb topping. Super delish!

I just tried this recipe last week. Holy cow was it great! There isn't too much liquid and if you add just a 1/4 cup of raspberries and blueberries combined with the peaches, it's even better.
