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."
"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!"
"I am excited to try this recipe!!"
"I'm a chocoholic so I was amazed how much I like this pie! With fresh peaches from our tree, it is to die for! My family looks forward to it every year!"
"The best peach pie I have ever had. And it was easy to make."
"I used frozen peaches and this pie was amazing."
"this pie is very good"
"I love peach pie, & this is by far the best recipe I've tried. I first made it 3 yrs. ago, 2 days before I had the first of three shoulder surgeries that left me unable to cook for nearly 18 mos. This was the first pie I made when I was again able to handle a rolling pin. A taste of heaven! Thanks for the recipe!"
"The flavour on this pie is very nice, but this pie is not one I would make again. Not sure if my peaches were a bit too ripe for this recipe, but my pie filling was a bit runny and the streusel topping was soggy on the top the day after it was made. I will stick to the traditional peach pie or my mom's peach custard pie."
"This recipe was so easy to make and super delicious!! For a fun picnic idea, I made little peach tarts using this recipe - they were a hit! :) Two thumbs up!! :)"
"This was so delicious and so easy to make. I used frozen peaches and it came out great."
"Made it for family and co-workers. This recipe is just awsome!!!"
"This was so easy to make that I was a little worried that it wouldn't be good. But I was wrong, it taste great and set up well."
"LOVED this, my whole family loved this recipe as well. I will make this again for sure, by the way the recipe was really peachy plus really delicious filling."
"Great recipe. Filling set up good & thick not runny."
