"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."

MY REVIEW

Just returned from Wilcox,Az with a bushel of gorgeous peaches and thought I'd try this pie. wow! Made 2 pies, tried a piece, made 2 more pies! My husband isn't a sweet eater and he fell in love with these pies. He took some to the hospital where he works and they went nuts for them! I've been baking for 45 yrs and these are the best I've come across! Thanx!

Very good pie! We used fresh peaches which is definitely a must do. We had so many peaches we ended up making two pies. This pie has the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness. We loved it so much that the night we made the pies, we ate a whole one. My daughter wrote down the whole recipe! We can't wait to make (and eat) it again!!!

Delicious! I used peaches that were still a little hard and therefore I believe did not create an adequate amount of juice causing the sauce to be too think to combine properly with the peaches. It was still amazing though. Very Good Pie. I will make this again with some nice ripe juicy peaches.

The pie is awesome, except putting foil on it at the start of baking pulled off half the crust off. Do all the above, except add foil after 15-20 minutes baking. Take it off towards the end.

This is the first recipe I've tried for a peach pie and it is delicious and a major success!! I used canned peaches because I couldn't find any good fresh ones. So, I reduced the cooking time just a bit. I also did a full crust on top and did an egg wash and sprinkled with sugar. Amazing. Thank you for the recipe!
