I made this recipe for my sister-in-law, because she loves peaches. I had my doubts about it, even as it was baking, but it came out great! I used canned peaches in lite syrup, and I added some vanilla & a little cinnamon to the batter. Quick & easy to make, and tastes very good.
This was so simple. I had a whole bunch of fresh peaches that were too ripe and had to use them. I made this for my hubby and he absolutely loved it. I followed the recipe exactly and have to admit that a little vanilla or cinnamon may add to it, but by far a five star recipe.
Joyce, this is just divine. I used fresh peaches (only way to go in my opinion). Couldn't have been easier. The crust was buttery and the filling was mouth watering. I added a dollop of whipped cream on top. Total yum!! Thanks ;)
