Bride's Peach Pie Recipe

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.

"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""
