"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."
From field editor Denise Goedeken of Platte Center, Nebraska comes this yummy pie that's a sure winner when fresh peaches are in season. "The sour cream filling and cinnamon crumb topping complement the fruit flavor," she maintains.
Our Test Kitchen staff came up with this peachy change of pace from a traditional baked fruit pie. Great for company, it's sure to impress guests--especially when it's served warm from the oven. For pretty presentation, serve slices with a dollop of reduced-fat whipped topping or a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt.
Tarts are special treats that show off summer fruits so sweetly. The pastry is rich, tender and crunchy, almost like a cookie. I use it for every type of tart I can think of. —Leanne Wheless, Borger, Texas
When peach season arrives, this great, old-fashioned pie is sure to be on the table. The recipe has been in our family for over 60 years, and I still make it every summer. Butterscotch buffs love it. —Barbara Moyer, Tiffin, Ohio
