This is a wonderful pie recipe to use up all of those yummy and sweet summer peaches. To make peeling easier dip peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds then plunge into sink or bowl of ice water. Once cool, you will be able to just rub the skin off (this will only work on ripe peaches). If you top this with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream it will be heavenly.
