Reviews for Mom's Peach Pie
"For those who are asking how many peaches equals 6 cups, it would be 9 medium whole peaches."
"About how many peaches, or how many pounds of peaches, equals 6 cups???"
"This pie is really good. There were no fresh peaches in the store I was in so I used canned peaches instead. I added a little bit of cinnamon in the flour mix. I think the next time I will use a glass pie plate. I also won't use an unbaked pastry shell. Maybe crushed graham crackers on the bottom of the glass pie plate."
"A Peachy winner. No lack of fruit in this one ! I cannot wait to try it using other fruits. I added some cinnamon and chopped pecans to the top. bake time is right on. I used a 9" glass pie plate. Next time I will use a deep dish pie plate. I had to back away from some of the topping . The pie just ran out of room.. This is a well earned 5 fork rating. Thanks Sally for sharing your Mom's recipe * We loved it.JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor."

"The reviews were spot on! Great pie, easy to make and loved by all of us. Just the right amount of sweet. I may add just a touch of cinnamon next time, but didn't even need it. Delicious!"
