Creamy Open-Faced Peach Pie

"This is not your everyday peach pie! The amount of sugar stated will give you a semi-sweet pie if you like a sweeter filling then add in more sugar. Prep time does not include making the pie pastry. Although I have only made this using peaches you might want to give it a try using apples ;-) Serve this topped with vanilla ice cream"

  1. Excellent! I made this with one and a half quarts of fresh canned peaches from this summer. We took our first bite Christmas Eve and looking forwards to a second piece if any is left! It has this very tastey light crunchy topping. Very nice recipe and different from anyother I have made for Peach Pie. Nice change.
  2. This was awesome and so easy I can't wait to make this again for the extended family. A perfect summer dish to compliment any summer grill food. Thank you for posting.
  3. Outstanding. Not a big fan of peach pie, but the amount of sugar was perfect. I used 2 large cans of sliced peaches and drained them well. I was a bit concerned with the filling not being "loose" enough, but it turned out very well. And I was out of foil, so I had that spill problem, but all in all it was well worth the effort. Thanks, Kitten!
