Peach-custard Kuchen

Recipe by Nimz1466

If you are a peach cobbler lover that eats around the peaches and goes for the crust, this is for you. Feel free to add more peaches if you want, but would recommend you trying it this way first. Found this in Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Recipes.

I found this recipe while searching for a quick dessert to make using frozen peaches from this summer. I made several changes based on what I had handy: Formed the dough in a pie tin, used 2 c. peaches in the middle, my 4 year old decided to "help" and mash some peaches - so I threw those in the custard, added a bit of almond extract to the custard, I also didn't have whipping cream, so I used milk with cornstarch and flour... and I forgot to bake during the first step... Lesson: This is a totally fool-proof recipe. I did have to bake it for about 40-45 minutes, but it was well worth it. I could barely wait for it to cool at all before cutting into it! Delicious!
