Angela's StoryThis is a recipe of a lifetime, and I would like to share it with you. This recipe was passed down from generation to generation,and I assure you it is out of this world. As a baker for many years, this was a milestone for me,and I am proud to say It was a success.

2using your rolling pin,fit dough in either a 13 by 9 inch pan or a deep dish 9in cake or pie pan.
You may need to repeat the dough, more than once for a 13 by 9 inch pan,and also if you want to make a lattice for the top of the pie. beat all the ingredients for the filling,for the peaches drain and push through a strainer,add to egg mixture.
3pour filling into pie crust,add lattice across the top of the pie and bake for 1 hour,at 350 degress.
