  1. I made this to take to work and it was wonderful! I used 6 large peaches and to be honest I forgot the lemon juice. Didn't miss it at all!!
  2. If made as is this is a spicy peach pie. I tend to like a sweet summer peach pie and would recommend omitting the ginger altogether if that is what you are looking for. I added a 6th peach and substitued 1/3 c flour for the cornstarch. I do not like adding cornstarch or tapioca to my pies as I think it alters the flavor and sometimes makes them too congealed. I like a little bit of juice to add to that home made effect. Also, if you are making a spicy peach pie you could add a 1/4 t of nutmeg for an extra boost of flavor. All in all this is a good pie recipe and I would definitely make again. I like that you can vary the spices to determine a spicy or sweet pie with a wonderful outcome either way.
  3. I made this this summer and was very happy with it. Next time I would use probably 1 more peach. It was not filled as high as I liked with 5, and my peaches very fairly large. Other than that, the pie was very tasty and very highly received by my friends. Thanks!
  4. I absolutely love peaches! I increased the number of peaches to fill my pie peaches must have been on the small side. I felt the amount of cinnamon and ginger was a bit too much, so next time I would reduce them by half. Served warm with delicious vanilla ice cream. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
  5. In the process of making my 3rd pie. Outstanding recipe. This is the perfect recipe.


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
