This is my own recipe for a pie that I make often. It's been a family-favorite dessert since the '40s, when I made several of these pies to serve a threshing crew of 21 men! —Vera Moffitt, Oskaloosa, Kansas
I got this recipe while living in Utah. Now I always use Utah peaches to make this delicious, creamy dessert-they're the best ones that I've ever tasted, and they certainly represent our region of the country.
"I've been preparing this glazed pecan-topped pie for so long that I can't recall when I came across the combination of ingredients my family liked best," relates Anita Ammerman of Albemarle, North Carolina. "It always draws lots of compliments."
This rich, old-fashioned dessert was an immediate hit with three girlfriends I used to live with. Now my husband and I run a small church camp and our two boys consume a lot of our time and energy—as well as my peanut butter pie!
"I first made this easy freezer dessert for visitors at our local art museum," notes Jeannie Brown, Overland Park, Kansas. "It's rich and sweet, with just the right touch of tartness. Whenever I serve it, it gets lots of compliments...and I get lots of requests for the recipe!"
"AS A SPECIAL TREAT when making this pie, Mom would sometimes place a marshmallow in the center of each lattice square, or, in honor of the Christmas tree we had just brought home, she'd cut Christmas tree shapes from the pie dough and place them on top of the pie."
