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.
You'll find this luscious dessert as easy as it is elegant. Mary Ann Kosmas, a reader from Minneapolis, Minnesota, explains. "You can bake the crust ahead—then it's mostly a matter of whipping together the filling."--Mary Ann Kosmas, Minneapolis, Minnesota
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.
"Red-hot candies give the filling in this pie its rosy 'blushing' color," reveals Bobbi Reiman of Greendale, Wisconsin. Her husband, Roy (publisher of Taste of Home), ranks this beautiful fruit pie as one of his all-time favorite desserts and requests it often.
Since my daughter, Beth, and her husband, Gary, do not care for cake, they opted for a "wedding pie" on their special day. Family and friends made 75 pies, many of which were set on a tiered holder to resemble a tall wedding cake. This is Beth's favorite.
Peach pie is typical of our state, and this recipe includes typically Southern praline topping. It was given to me when I married and set up our home more than 40 years ago. I can and freeze peaches to make this pie year-round.
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.
