Reviews for Bride's Peach Pie
"I was 3 months pregnant and craving pies like a madwoman. My only variation is homemade crust but I love this pie so much that I would bake two and tell the family I made one so I could secretly eat an ENTIRE pie to myself and still have a slice or more of the other pie! I made more than 20 of these pies (I am not lying) over the course of my 2nd trimester and any time a girlfriend announces a pregnancy I rush over with a fresh "Bride's Peach Pie""
"I have made this pie several time and have recommended it to several people it's so good!"
