I can't fairly rate this recipe because of two things. I had the most sour peaches. They didn't even have a brown pit in them. All's I saw when I cut one open to take a pic was white seeds with a hard area around them. You MUST have good juicy peaches for this! I originally was going to try with canned peaches and I wish I had of. Also, I am not a good proof reader and I was mixing away with my mixer when I saw "mix with a fork". Make sure not to make that mistake. I know that caused a texture problem. I plan to make these again the right way, once I get my hands on some juicey peaches!
