Reviews for Mom's Peach Pie
"About how many peaches, or how many pounds of peaches, equals 6 cups???"
"We loved this pie recipe! The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle in some blueberries with the peaches. I will definitely put this in my summer pie rotation!"
"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."
"Made this today; blended just a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg into the flour before mixing w/sugars. Wow, a very delicious, fresh peach pie. This recipe is a "keeper", for sure!"
"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!"
"How many peaches = 6 cups of sliced peaches?"
"This pie is just like what my grandma use to make ! Thanks f or the memories !"
"Love this pie recipe! So easy to make, especially since I'm baking challenged. Unfortunately, when I went to peel the peaches some were rotten and I had an "on no" moment. I remembered I had frozen blueberries and added them. Back to my farm stand this week-end for new peaches and will buy extra and make as written. Thank you Sally for a wonderful pie recipe."
"This is my MOM's peach pie recipe! Exact same recipe given to her by her mom. In her old cookbook it is named Praline Peach Pie. By any name, it is a great pie! Followed directions exactly, except I skipped the egg wash. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I love rediscovering great classic recipes!"
