"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.
