As a child, I loved Grandma's pies. I always believe the crust helped add flavor to any pie and Grandma made the best crust ever. If there was leftover dough she would roll it out, put cinnamon and sugar on it, and bake it till it was light brown. What a treat.

The perfect peach pie for summer. This pie has the flavor of summertime with fresh peaches and a hint of almond. The mixture of the two flavors adds a light cherry flavor to the peach pie. A double crust that bakes to a golden brown holds in all the juicy fresh peaches.
