"I acquired this delicious recipe some 40 years ago, when my husband and I first moved to southern Iowa and had peach trees growing in our backyard," writes June Mueller from Sioux City, Iowa. "It's been a family favorite since then and always brings back memories of both summer and those happy early years. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cup of tea."

"This pie is much better than the usual peach pie - it's cooking the juices with the cornstarch. It gives the filling a better flavor and consistency (more blended and jammier). I added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and increased the sugar a little - it was perfect. I'm going to try this technique with plums, too."

"Celia6680, you can sprinkle the bottom of the crust with "crust dust", which is equal parts granulated sugar and flour. That should help stop the bottom from getting soggy."

"Not a review but a question. How can I make a peach pie without crust getting mushy and not cooked. I had one recipe for a peach crumb but stopped making it because the bottom crust was mushy, thank you!"

"I didn't have quite enough peaches or nutmeg so I was a little nervous but this came out beautifully. I had about 4 peaches that were too ripe and wrinkled to eat so I decided to try a pie. The saucepan technique made a great thick binder to hold everything together. Everyone really likes it and this will be added in to my summer rotation!"

"Loved it!!! Making this for the 2nd time now. Made it with thawed out frozen peaches. Added the sugar to the peaches as it was thawing out stirring it a few times. It was perfect. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you!!!"

"This was one of the best peach pies I've ever eaten! I don't like nutmeg and cinnamon together, so I omitted the nutmeg and added a little extra cinnamon. Delicious!"
