“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.”
Fourteen years ago, I entered this beautiful lattice-top pie in the Park County Fair in Livingston. It won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for "Best All Around"! My large family—and many friends agree with the judges that it's very delicious.
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.
