I had an overabundant supply of cherries one year, so I adapted several recipes to use them up. I knew this one was a keeper when I received phone calls from my Mother and Grandmother complimenting me on this pie.
"I acquired this delicious recipe some 40 years ago, when my husband and I first moved to southern Iowa and had peach trees growing in our backyard," writes June Mueller from Sioux City, Iowa. "It's been a family favorite since then and always brings back memories of both summer and those happy early years. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cup of tea."
Fourteen years ago, I entered this beautiful lattice-top pie in the Park County Fair in Livingston. It won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for "Best All Around"! My large family—and many friends agree with the judges that it's very delicious.
"Boy…I never thought of putting these two together. What a flavor!" That's what I hear most often after folks try this pie I "invented" one day when I was short of peaches for a full crust. —Sue Thumma, Shepherd, Michigan
A delightful summertime pie, this dessert is overflowing with fresh peach flavor. Each sweet slice is packed with old-fashioned appeal. The streusel topping makes this pie a little different than the ordinary and adds homemade flair. —Sally Holbrook, Pasadena, California
We have an abundance of "pieplant" in our garden, so I save every rhubarb recipe I come across. I've done a lot of cooking and baking over the 53 years I have been married. My husband especially loves the combination of rhubarb and peaches in this pie.
