Peach Schnapps Pucker Licious Peach Pie

This was one of the dessert items on my CHRISTMAS menu. I wanted to enhance the flavor of my peach pie just a bit, so I added the addition of Peach Schnapps.

I made 2 peach desserts because my husband prefers Peach Pie, and I like Peach Cobbler, so I made both.

With this recipe I was able to take pictures as I went to show the results. Dan really loved it. I made hearts in the center of the crust to let the steam escape. This time I used canned Peaches, but I prefer fresh or frozen. I already had these, & had enough for both the cobbler & the pie. Made each of us happy.
