My Favorite Peach Pie

Pat Duran


A friend gave me this recipe about 1989 or so- I have tweaked it a bit since then. You can use fresh or canned peaches.This pie is made with the Classic Crisco double pie crust. I have also made it using my "Farm Fresh Apple Pie with Egg Yolk Pastry", substituting the peaches for the apples- this is real good too.Give it a try both ways- see which you like best!
