"I thought this recipe turned out very well. I used sliced peaches that I had frozen. In contrast to others, I would have liked a little more of the custard. It was delicious."

"What a lovely recipe. Perfect choice for our local fresh peaches.

The crust reminds me of a very rich shortbread. Rich and flakey. I did cut back on the amount of sugar after reading several reviews. Even though my peaches were fresh the reduction did not hamper this recipe at all.
Another thing I reduced was the amount of topping.
Fabulous recipe worthy of the 5 star rating."

"This is a very nice recipe. Just a little too sweet for my taste though, so when I make it again I will decrease the amount of brown sugar. Other than that it's great, and very simple to make. The crust is fabulous, and I will be using it on other pie recipes as well. Even though it's a little too sweet it still gets 5 stars! Excellent recipe!"

"I made this recipe exactly as stated. The only thing I will change when I make it again is add about 7 minutes to the second baking time. The custard wsn't quite firm enough for my taste. I think the reviewer that complained about having to bake twice as long probably didn't read the recipe all the way through before starting. Good reicpe, I will make this again."

"I used fresh peaches, about 4 cups of sliced peaches that I patted dry with paper towels and for the custard 3 egg yolks, 1 cup heavy cream and 1/3 cup non-dairy vanilla liquid creamer and it was delicious. I will definitely make this recipe every peach season.

"I did not care for this recipe for kuchen. The crust was too much like pie crust rather than a dough and it was way too sugary for my taste. It also took much longer to bake than stated. The recipe I clipped from the magazine said 20 + 25 minutes! Must have been a misprint. I had it in 20 + 50 at least."

"I sat and looked at this recipe a couple of days before I made it. I did half-n-half to lighten the custard some. It took a bit longer to bake, but the velvety custard was wonderful. This is a keeper."

"I live in the mountains of New Mexico, so I had to make a couple of changes for altitude. I used about three tablespoons more butter in the crust and increased the temp to 375°. And because I had them, I used three cans of peaches and I used three egg yolks and a cup and a half of heavy cream, because I really like the extra custard. It all fit into the crust beautifully. It took a bit longer to bake, but the results are beautiful. Thanks to Rachel Garcia for this recipe. I have made it twice in the last two weeks and I know it will be at the top of my rotation for years to come."
