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.

"Not usually a peach pie fan but this is a winner. I used the zest of a whole orange and together with the almond extract really adds to the taste. Will definitely make this again."

"I made these in my Emeril mini pie maker and they came out great! (I didn't have any orange peel in the house, so I left that out, but I want to add that next time.)"
