Recipe by curly top

This creamy, peach n cheesecake pie is inspired by a creamy peach pie from Elmira, Ontario in a book of traditional Canadian recipes. I now live in a different Elmira and have adopted the name for my pie.

Top Review by Michelle Berteig

Very good! Family loved it. At first, the amount of spice seemed a bit strong to me, but afterward it seemed to be the right amount. I would definitely make this again, I think it would be good with different kinds of fruit in the bottom, changing the spices to suit. This was the first time I made a lattice-top pie and it turned out great! I added a sprinkle of coarse sugar on top for a bit of crunch. Made for PAC spring '08.
