“Over the years, I’ve added a dash of almond extract to my peach pie filling,” writes Carlene Goodeill of Chico, California. “Sprinkling a little granulated sugar and nutmeg on the top crust adds a nice touch, too.”
I had an overabundant supply of cherries one year, so I adapted several recipes to use them up. I knew this one was a keeper when I received phone calls from my Mother and Grandmother complimenting me on this pie.
Since my daughter, Beth, and her husband, Gary, do not care for cake, they opted for a "wedding pie" on their special day. Family and friends made 75 pies, many of which were set on a tiered holder to resemble a tall wedding cake. This is Beth's favorite.
