Peach pie using fresh peaches.
Top Review by CarrolJ
This pie deserves 50 stars instead of 5. What a wonderful ending to this fun Pick A Chef game. Andi...you're the greatest! I used well drained canned peaches since I didn't have any nice fresh ones........but that didn't make any difference. Peach pie is my favorite fruit pie, but your recipe is an absolutely wonderful pie which surpasses all I've ever eaten. Pretty easy to make too. Thanks a lot. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
- double pie crust (9 inch size)
- 6 cups of fresh ripe peaches (sliced)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 dash cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
